    I have tried to pair my iPad with my Dell PC and have received an error message about the Peripheral Device Driver is not installed.

    Where do I find this file to download and install? Thanks

    Which Windows version are you using on the laptop?

    Windows Vista&7 should automatically install the necessary iPad drivers, when you connect the iPad to the laptop, so should XP 32-bit. Only XP 64-bit should give trouble.

    Another question: Through which means are you connecting the iPad: Bluetooth or USB?

    Thanks for taking the time to answer. I am using W7 and tryingnto connect through BT.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled the Widcomm BT software sent to me by Dell. No joy!

    Interestingly, I am also am able to pair my Wacom tablet.

    Yet, I have paired my mouse, phone, and printer to my computer, and my phone to my iPad.

    Pairing an iPad with Windows won't work. The iPad's bluetooth is fairly restricted and it can't be used for things, such as file transfer. In general, the iPad bluetooth can only be used for connecting a keyboard and headphones, pretty much everything else won't work.

    Unless you have another iOS device, then you could also use bluetooth to play games, share files, etc.

    To sync the iPad with my computer instead of using a USB cord. If it worked I could permanently have my iPad and computer paired.

    The iPad's bluetooth is restricted and syncing via Bluetooth is not among the things that are supported, you will have to do that by using the usb cable.

    Once a jailbreak comes out for iPad 2, you could use Wifi-Sync to sync the iPad via Wifi, or over 3g. This would let you keep the iPad always synchronized.
