    Bought new iPad2 only shows USB conn w/arrow. Followed instructions about going to iTunes downloading with iPad2 connected everything appeared to work. Followed further instructions to authorized tried but said server was busy try later. Tried several times yesterday, same results. Tried again today still busy. Still looking at new iPad2 with nothing but an USB on screen ... so what else can this do?

    maybe the server is busy, what restaurant are you trying.
    ......................

    what computer do you have?

    are you using the latest iTunes available?


    maybe iTunes is not recognizing the device and just giving a server busy.

    try this: hold top and circle button together for 10-15 secs, and try again when the iPad shows the usb to iTunes.

    If the problem persists, an Apple Store can perform this initial step.

    This happened to me when I first bought mine. I had to update to the latest ver of Itunes before it would see my ipad.

    So if you have not done so yet update your Itunes

    Thanks for all the info but the correct answer was I just needed to let it charge up overnight. Got on to iTunes and everything worked fine. A little note note from Apple would have been nice. Thanks again to all.:)
