    I own an iPad 1 since quite a long ago, and I was properly using it with iTunes on my laptop.
    Unfortunately the hard disk of my laptop crashed, and after changing it I had to install iTunes again.
    When I connected my iPad again to the laptop and iTunes opens, now of course does not show under iTues all the apps I had gathered. For example, I have found no option to actually move around apps within the iPad through iTunes, since the iPad screen in iTunes appears "greyed-out" - not sure if I am explaining myself.
    I am sure I am not the first one with this issue, any ideas?

    I'm a little confused here, in your other post you say you are considering buying an iPad, but apparently you already have one?

    I'm not sure what's going on here, but I would like to know.

    nothing of the sort... actually you are correct on both.
    If you check, my other post was October 2010, when I still did not have my iPad.

    Now, March 2012, my question above is referred to that iPad I bought days after that other post... that's why I started the post with "I own an iPad1 since quite long ago..." :)

    If you have more insight on my original question above I'd appreciate it.

    Semel, regarding your advice, I had actually seen that possibility, but I was afraid that by synchronising I would lose all apps in the iPad, since it would sync with iTunes, where I now have none. Am I correct?
