I set up my new ipad using iTunes on my work PC (where my iTunes library is not stored) and now iTunes on my home computer (where my library is stored) doesnt recognize the device at all. Did I mess up by being impatient and not waiting to set it up from my home computer? iPhoto on my home computer does see the device...Ive tried restarting both my home computer and the ipad, resetting the settings on the ipad, checking the settings in iTunes, etc., etc. Any advice would be appreciated! ...|set-computer-sync-ipad

I purchased an I-Pad 2 on 3/11 to replace the original I-Pad I bought last year. I synced it with my former I-Mac and transferred Apps I had purchased and synced to my former original I-Pad to my new I-Pad 2.. Then my former I-Mac crashed and burned and I bought a new I-Mac. Now I have all the original apps successfully installed on the new I-Pad 2, but cant sync them back to my new I-Mac. Is there any way I can do that?

I bought ipad yesterday. Downloaded latest iTunes. Plugged in the USB to the computer. Plugged in the connection to the ipad. Message popped up on my computer screen: This ipad cannot be used because the Apple Mobile Device service is not started. When I depress the power button, I get the iTunes icon, a battery icon showing full charge, and a USB connector with an arrow pointing to the iTunes icon. This is displayed for approx 10 seconds, then the screen goes blank and its non-responsive to touch. I scoured the Apple tech support areas. Any ideas? ipad iOS 4...|ipad-set

ipad has a manual time set in settings, but my pad has gained time.Does ipad not sync with the time in my Mac or Apple server to have the accurate time setting? There is nothing in the ipad manual except how to set time manually, 12/24 time, and time zone.If there is not a time sync, seems a liitle silly to ask the time zone if setting the time manually.
