    iTunes is freezing-up about every 3rd or 4th time I connect my iPad2 to the PC. I have to close iTunes from Win 7 task manager (which shows it not responding) then manually restart iTunes where it connects to the iPad ok.

    Anyone else experiencing random freeze-ups?

    I have had the same problem on occasion. Once I had to actually reboot my computer. Never did this with my first iPad.

    It's not freezing it is just busy. Like every application when it says not responding you just need to be patient, it will continue.
    I have a lot of comics on my 64GB wi-fi 3G and when I connect to Itunes it takes a couple of minutes to read them all from the comiczeal app.
    If you don’t wait and shut it down with the task manager you could corrupt the data on your iPad and possible the itunes application itself.

    I'm having the same problem with the iPhone, iPad 1, and iPod Touch. It's not busy doing anything as I have left it for several hours and it doesn't make any difference. Sometimes it will attach to the first device and sync OK, then when I plug in the next device, iTunes freezes. Stop it with Task Manager, unplug idevice, restart iTunes, plug idevice back in, good to go again. Sometimes just re-plugging in the idevice will un-freeze iTunes. I have re-installed iTunes. When I have some time, I will delete the devices drivers and re-install them, to see it that helps.

    Hours means frozen for sure. I have seen some apps take up to 10 minutes to catch up. But never hours.

    I have also never hooked up two or more devices at one time. I have many I just uses them at different times.

    Same here. I restart the computer and all is fine. Never started happening until the past couple of months.

    Try turning off Genius for the time being and then check your iTunes data for issues. I had an errant entry in my music that was making it freeze. I fixed it and haven't had an issue since. And yes, I have since turned Genius back on.

    I would turn off Ping also if you are not using it.

    Genius and Ping are both turned off. I have never used Genius (make my own playlists) and Ping was disabled as soon as I got the iPad. It is a randomly occurring problem with iTunes. When it works, my iPad connects to iTunes within a few seconds. It sync's much quicker than my iPod Touch even though I have a lot more loaded on the IPad.
