    I am new to iPad and am trying to synch with iTunes on my PC and then download os5. My laptop gets to "backing up iPad" and runs for hours. Any ideas and how do I download Os 5? Thx

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Have you done backups on your PC before. If not, depending on what you have on your iPad, it can take a very long time. Upgrading now will take you straight to IOS 5.0.1, make sure you have the latest version of iTunes and it's a good idea to disable your virus protection for the duration of the upgrade. Here are a couple of links which will tell you what you need to know:-
    Good luck, let us know how you go.
