    iPad not seen by iTunes, or Mac side for that matter
    Snow leopard w/recent iTunes on a Mac book running parallels. Parallels sees the iPad just fine, and photo wizard will even pull down my pics. But I can't seem to make the Mac side find the iPad. Even when I turn parallels off. Any thoughts?

    My experience may not prove your blessing, but as I've had occasion where iTunes would not recognize my iPad, I did the following additional things (with success):

    - Close all running apps on my iPad
    - Power down my iPad
    - Restart my PC
    - Connect iPad (while powered down) to my restarted PC

    Again, for me...one or another of the items above seemed to be the thing that did the trick. But I can't say enough that what works for one soul, may not work successfully for another. But the nice thing is...the suggestions above won't hurt anything to try ;)

    Thanks, I'll try it that way. I'm suspecting that it has something to do with how the Mac side & parallels fight over USB devices. May be a fresh pwr up will do it.

    I finally got time to try again, found that Parallels was not shutting off, but just being Suspended. Once the whole virtual machine was shut down, iTunes had no trouble finding the iPad. I'll try updating to os4whatever this weekend.

    How did you go from "Suspended" to "Shut down"?
