    Check Bonjour and it is running. I tunes does not show my I pad as it usually does in the left column. This happened after I changed the setting from syn over Wifi to syn while the able I inserted into the USB port on the computer. I don't have an option to switch back.

    Ctrl/Alt/Delete. Start Task Manager. Services tab. Right click on Apple Mobile Device and Start Service.

    Ok I got in running again and the original message comes up so I followed those instructions going to services. The computer starts syncing waiting for my iPad to syn but it doesn't and the original message comes up occasionally.

    I now get a message that the I pad failed to syn because the iPad failed to start. Just trying to give as much info as possible. Thanks
