    Hello guys,

    I am a new Ipad user and could not get around with some of the problems it is presenting.

    Right now my problem is:

    After I get my Ipad connected to my PC and to the internet, it showed me that there was a new version available for download (V.5.0.1).

    Then I accepted to make the download and update my Ipad, but didn't know that it would cause me problems.

    After the download, it restart the Ipad normal, but I get an error message in the iTunes on which it Could not continue with the Sync and now I cannot Sync my iTunes with my iPad.

    Already try to uninstall the iTunes, following same help pages but after the new installation it cames back to the same.

    After connecting to the PC it recognise but don't allow me to sync only allow me to Revert.

    Can anyone help me, please? I am running win7 OS on my PC, and I am start to think that it may be a problem of compatibility between both systems, because with another PC with XP it won't happen.

    Thanks in advanced

    Maiko.

    Maiko, welcome to the forum!

    How are you trying to sync with itunes? Are you directly connecting your ipad to your pc with the usb cord to get to itunes? Or, are you trying to do a "wifi" sync where you plug your ipad to a power outlet and than open itunes on your PC and sync that way? A little more information may be needed.

    You can always go to the preference setting on itunes and disable the automatic sync option when your ipad connects to your PC. From there, when you directly connect your ipad to your PC/open itunes: you can check the summary tab and see how your sync settings are set for. You can choose to wifi sync and than proceed as the directions say.

    See this: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-os/50095-ipad-wifi-sync-2.html

    Also, ipads do not work well multiple computers. Make sure that your itunes is also updated to 10.5.1 or most current. Whichever it is telling you is the most current update.

    Perhaps others will chime in.

    It sounds like the OP has done that already, but yes, if not-always good to try a restart than a reset if all else fails.

    hey skimonkey

    I beg to differ...

    It sounds like the OP has done that already, but yes, if not-always good to try a restart than a reset if all else fails.

    I bought an ex-demo Ipad 1 from Best Buy and had to perform reset with no updates to get around probs.

    regards

    I am thinking of a hard reset of the ipad from pressing the power switch and the home button together until the slide lock appears to turn off.

    What you are referring to is resetting it from the settings--which can erase all that the OP has on his ipad, which will bring it back to his factory settings. Not sure if this is what he wants to do, especially if he has difficulty having itunes recognize his device. Further information needs to be given in my opinion, before we lead him on the wrong path.

    @skimonkey.....sorry for spelling your name wrong earlier......it's a brain malfunction!

    I'll go and correct it then write a hundred lines "must spell skimonkey's name correctly, must spell......."
