    I am under the impression that the Ipad (and other Mac Device such as Ipod) can only be linked to one library. So if you connected it to your Mac, and now trying to use it with your Windows Machine, then it won't let you as it's linked to another library?

    Not to sure about the recovery mode. I assume you left the ipad plugged in hwen it was doing the upgrade and installation of the IOS5?
