    With the earlier versions of iTunes, in order to sync music and photos, all I had to do was plug in the iPad. The sync happened automatically. I could watch the progress on the top bar of iTunes.

    The NEW iTunes (11.0,0.163) doesn't do this.. I plug in my iPad.... iTunes starts, and then just sits there.

    If I go to the top bar and click on 'File' then 'Devices' in the drop down menu, a side menu pops up with several options. One is to 'Sync', but it is greyed out.

    So, the Sync doesn't happen automatically any more and the option to do it manually is greyed out.. How do I get new photos and music transferred to the iPad? I'm using Windows 7 and have an iPad 1 running IOS 5.1.1. I've had the setup for two years now and have never had a problem syncing until the latest iTunes showed up :(

    Never mind..... I messed around for another 1/2 hour and see that you have to turn on Home Sharing.... That was a nice touch leaving it off in this version. I guess most people instinctively new they had to activate it. :(
