    I'm in a bit of mess I'm afraid. Here's what has happened:

    1. I bought Ipad2 (16 GB), downloaded latest version of itunes and connected the ipad to my laptop a week ago. It worked fine, itunes detected it, i registered at app store (but didn't register the ipad yet). life was good.
    2. Today, I restored factory settings on Ipad 2 and tried to connect it to a different laptop (don't have access to the first laptop anymore). I again downloaded the new version of itunes and then connected it. Nothing is happening. The ipad turns on for a second so I can see the image of white usb chord and itunes symbol. but itunes on my laptop doesn't read it.
    3. Since I restored factory settings, the Ipad now gives only that screen of white usb chord to be plugged in the itunes symbol whether it is connected to the laptop or not.
    4. I even gave the current laptop authorization from itunes ("authorize this computer"). I thought that might fix the problem. But nope, nothing.
    5. I'm using Windows 7
    Can anyone please help me?

    Waiting anxiously. :(
