    Hello. We have 2 iPads in the family, both using the same iTunes account on my windows 7 computer. Both are ios5 and the latest version of iTunes. Mine is called Dave!s iPad and the other is called Joe's iPad. When you connect to iTunes they come up with the correct names in iTunes BUT in windows explorer or my computer both of them it comes up as Joe's iPad, even if it is Dave's that is connected! Any ideas out there?

    Hi, I had the exact same problem. So using RegEdit I went into the into the Registry and did a search for the other name that was showing up in Windows, I replaced the 3 instances and reconnected my iPad... Problem gone.
