    My ipad was disabled and the message on ipad was to connect to itunes. When i connect to itune, itune prompts that "cannot connect to itunes because it was passcode locked. You must enter the passcode on your ipad before you can access itune". Is chicken and egg!!

    I went to epicentre and seek for help. They told me that i need to upgrade to itunes 10.1. I did. It still don't work!

    Can someone help!

    I would reboot your iPad first. Then reinstall a fresh copy of iTunes. If that doesn't work the only thing you can do is just restore it.

    Same problem...did you resolve?

    We are having the same problem where the iPad instruction is to log into itunes, but to log in we have to enter our passward on the iPad to unlock.

    Can you share with us how you resolved this issue?

    I have the same chicken and egg problem. My iPad is disabled because someone entered the wrong password too many times, and tells me to connect to iTunes. iTunes tells me to unlock the iPad with it's password before connecting to iTunes!

    Please tell me someone has figured out how to fix this, or is my iPad going to be just an expensive paperweight?

    Okay:
    1. turn the iPad off.
    2. Hold home, then connect to iTunes while holding home until a different "Connect to iTunes" screen appears.
    3. Restore with iTunes.

    (This is a small trick I know and shouldn't be used after stealing someone's else's iDevice, I'm not responsible for similar cases.)
