    Hi
    Not sure what I've done; but now my iPad is not connected to iTunes when connected to my PC.
    I may have changed a setting unwittingly.
    Any ideas?

    Did you have it set to sync with your device by default? Also maybe the cord. Do you have another to try??

    It was working fine, then I closed down iTunes one time, and it asked to save new settings, I said yes, and since then when I plug in, I get windows auto options instead of iTunes:-(

    Hi Alan - welcome to the forum! :)

    One possibility which has happened to me is that AMDS (Apple Mobile Device Service) may have stopped running on your computer - this feature allows iTunes to recognize connected devices, such as an iPod or iPad - check this Apple Support article HERE to determine if that might be the culprit? Good luck and please post back your results - might help others w/ a similar problem!
