    Joined today as an iphone 4 and ipad 2 user with hundreds of cds worth of music stored on a laptop. I love using music and having stored it in the icloud I was looking forward to using my ipad as a console to play music at a private function. So I downloaded the DJAY app which sounded really useful. My problem has been that I also (the same day) upgraded to I06 on my ipad2 from I05. Suddenly all of my album icons are blank and when you open the album I get no track details and it shows 0.00 mins for each track. It still has the correct number of track spaces and knows the correct number of albums per artist too. I just can't play any music. When I hook up to my PC it shows there is over 20gb of music on the ipad but has !marks next to the tracks when I try to play them. Anyone know what I am doing wrong? I also have 5 apps which won't update - keeps telling me to try again later. My wi-fi connection is fine and I can use itunes on the ipad2 to show my purchases where they are shown with a cloud sign.

    Thoughts ? For info the music works fine on my iphone!
