    I'm sorry, but if you've never done a backup, then those photos are gone. A restore essentially wipes your iPad to start fresh.

    Again, sorry.

    Sorry to hear about this unfortunate event. I know it won't help in this instance, but it's always been true of computer hardware: if you care about it, NEVER have it only in one place. You can lose your ripped music, but it will only cost you time to rerip the CDs.

    Take it from me. I've been there. A hard drive crash took out my photos, and they were not backed up. Luckily, I had printed out a few. Now I have my photos copied to 3 or 4 different places.
