    Hello all....

    I recently had to re-install Windows 7 64-bit on my computer that I use to sync my iPad 1 with due to some slowness and instability.

    I started out by doing a complete iTunes backup that spanned 3 DVD's.

    After re-installing Windows, I downloaded and installed iTunes from the internet. I then inserted each DVD, one by one, and let iTunes take over, and said YES when it asked if I wanted to restore from the backup.

    Now, when I plugged my iPad in for the first tiime, it told me that it was synced to another iTunes library, so, I selected "Transfer Purchases" because I had read that was the proper choice in this case.

    Now, however, everytime I plug in, it keeps telling me that the iPad is still syned with another library and only gives me the choice to Erase and Sync or Cancel.

    I was under the impression that doing the backup to disc and then restore from disc was going to prevent this from happening. Did I do something wrong? I am jailbroke on 4.3.3, and do not want to lose my jailbreak.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you,

    I will do that now.

    Also, before the wipe, I deauthorized the computer, and then when I installed iTunes again after the wipe, I authorized again. I have made that mistake more than once before and ended up running out of my 5, and having to deauthorize everything and start again.
