    I have and Ipad 1, and I got an issue,

    When I connect the ipad to the pc (windows 7) it doesn't connect, not even on DFU mode.

    I tried another Ipad, and it works perfectly, and my Iphone too....

    But when I connect this ipad to another computer, nothing happens too, so the problem is with the Ipad, and it's stuck to the connect to itunes screen.

    So, I wonder, is there a way to force a connection to the ipad so I can restore it?

    If you're getting error code 1611, one solution that has worked is to close and reopen iTunes and then connect your iPad to A DIFFERENT USB slot on the computer. The restore should work then.

    Try disabling any anti-virus software/firewall you have running.
    Then re-sync your iPad. You'd be surprised at how many times this has been the issue for some users. :)!

    Unfortunatelly, no response... It's not that I'm getting an error or something like that, it simply does not connect.... no signal of connecting, not even the beep sound when we connects a USB device.

    I'm starting to think that the only option is to get to an Apple store and they swipe off the IOS and write it back from the very start.
