Im trying to download the software update for the ipad. After a long time of downloading it shifts to file processing. After a couple minutes there, it stops the process because of no activity on the network. I think the error is 3239. The same thing happens when weve tried to update our ipod touches. Are there settings that need to be changed?Thanks! macbookpro Mac OS X (10.6.6)...|downloading-software-update-ipad

Is there a way to download iOS updates for my iPAD other than through iTunes? I have access at home only to dial-up (yes, there are still some of us) and I can;t plug my iPAD into my work computer because it is a government machine. However, if I could download the iOS update directly I could do so at work and transfer it to a thumbdrive for transfer to my home machine.Thanks MacBook Pro 2.33 duo core, 15 inch model Mac OS X (10.6.4)...|downloading-ios-update-ipad

I have managed to download the 4.2.1 software but in the actual updating phase, my iPad reboots and it is after this reboot that an error message pops up 1645- unknown error. I have tried several times to update my iPad but the error message always comes up. I have also tried restoring, which gives the same error message and I have tried using a different computer- once again giving the error message. Thanks for your help in advance!

When I connect my iPad to iTunes and tick the check box to sync apps, it fails for about 50% of them with An Unknown error. There seems to be no pattern to what syncs and what wont i.e., some free and paid apps sync and some free and paid apps wont.As I test I downloaded a couple of the free ones that wont sync via the app store and they download and install properly.
