    Are you on iOS5 yet? I'm guessing that an experienced user, such as you, have tried to reset the iPad...

    yes did that,it says in iTunes summary,version, that i need to connect with cable for updates act,i don't understand that as iCloud backs up if i tell it to and iPhoto is enabled,I'm totally puzzled.

    OK - you say it say it tells you to connect for updates - but do you currently have iOS5? I wasn't sure if that's what you meant..sorry if I've misunderstood you.

    yes sorry,i have iOS5,i want to stream photos from my ipad2 to my mbp,i have photo stream ticked in preferences,enabled in iPhoto and iCloud is on in ipad2 settings but when i take photos on my iPad they don't stream.........looks like i have to connect the cable to sync too which defeats the object of iCloud,totally fed up and puzzled.

    Are both the iPad and the computer connected to either wifi or 3G?

    Then you should probably try starting fresh again with iCloud

    I read somewhere that Photo Stream is only for up to 1,000 recent photos. Recent as being only the last 30 days. Try taking some new photos and see what happens.
