    I think that's the problem right there, the version of ITunes he has is not compatible with the OS on your iPad. Also did you authorize this computer to sync your iPad to? Is there any reason you have not upgraded? It's at 5.1 now with so many new features to be had, hope this helps you. If you do want to upgrade, we can show you how to do it, just let us know.
