    have just replaced my ipad(the first one got stuck in recovery mode after trying to update to os5) and now the new one has done the same. have followed all the instructions on the apple website to try to resolve the issue, but no joy. i have only had the ipad for 3 weeks, and am beginning to regret spending all that money on something that keeps failing. please help!!!!

    Don't panic!! We're here to help...OK - so your second iPad had an earlier version of iOS and now you're trying to 'recover' it? Did you return the first one to the Apple Store and they gave you a replacement? A new iPad should now have iOS5...

    OK - what is the screen of the iPad 'saying'?

    I had the same issue. I had to reboot my pc. Also I had to plug the USB cord directly into the pc and not the one on my monitor.

    Then it restored an upgraded.
