I would like to upgrade her pad to 6 but not having any luck doing so.Do I have to go to 5 first then 6 or can I go right to six? What version of Itunes do I need? Would appreciate any help. Also the best way to do it. Thanks much:(

    You can't upgrade incrementally, you have to go to the latest version of iOS. Update your version of iTunes to the latest available for your PC/Mac (11 I think) then connect the iPad again and give it another go.

    I just upgraded mine from iOS4 to 6, so that works fine. Installed the latest iTunes (as Gabriel1 already pointed out) before I did so.
    Took quite a bit of time to upgrade, but worked fine.

    Going from iOS 4-6 is quite an update, I'm glad it worked out all right.
