Hi, I'm new to this forum, so hello everybody! I've bought an Ipad of a friend and I'm really pleased with it, first time I've used an apple operating system, and finding it really easy to use. However I have a problem, I tried to use Sharepod with my ipad (which in hindsight I shouldn't have) and now when I log into itunes on my PC I get a 'Itunes cannot read the contents of the ipad, please restore' My understanding is that when I restore, my Ipad will be back to factory state and I'll lose all the apps I've paid for. I cannot back up my apps to itunes due to this problems. But the ipad itself is working perfectly. But it will not connect to itunes on my pc Is there anyway I can 'repair' my ipad so it will work with itunes without having to do a full restore or failing that am I able to save my apps without itunes? Any help will be welcomed with open arms!
