    Is it just me or has anyone experienced this. I upgraded to iPad 4. I backed up my iPad3 via iTunes (it takes about 12 hours to back up in the iCloud plus I had to buy more space). Then I plugged in my iPad 4 and did a restore from iTunes back up but about 5 minutes into restoration, it game me this error:

    "iTunes could not restore the iPad ("name of my iPad") because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iPad that is being restored." What gives? Please help. I sold my iPad3 on eBay and I need to ship it ASAP but I want to make sure I get my data and settings back. Thanks.
