Whenever I try syncing my ipad to itunes (on Windows 7), itunes stalls out on the finishing sync If I disconnect the ipad after a long wait, the apps can not be started, the icons just explodeDo I need to reinstall itunes on my PC? How do I do that? Will I loose my apps, or will they transfer when I reinstall?At least the sync gets through the back up phase.

This has never happened to me before. The synch gets about 3/4 done and then a warning box shows up saying this ipad cant be synched as there is a file missing. I have done nothing to iTunes nor to my ipad. I would Reset but there are tunes on my ipad that I bought on the ipad and I will lose them if I reset. Anyone else having this problem?

I have a 32gb iPod touch and just got my 32gb 3g ipad. Is it possible for my first ipad synch t not include transferring / synching music, photos, or apps from the ipod ? I know its possible to allow a manual synch for the ipad in the future, but how do you do it for the first synch ? I hear people who do an initial ipad synch that it can take a long time if people have a lot on their iPod or iPhone etc...?I want a clean start for my first synch!

Sorry if this is a repeat questions, but I couldnt find an answer. Not all of my apps are synching to my ipad. Example: I purchased two new apps last night, but they are not on my ipad after synching. I have the latest ipad software, the latest iTunes software, I have plenty of room for the apps, I have synch all apps checked. All apps are specific to the ipad (as opposed to iPhone, etc.). I even tried to manually drag an app from iTunes to the ipad, but no luck. No helpful message comes up to explain this. Any ideas or help would be appreciated!

When I first connected my ipad to my PC, everything synched perfectly. After about a week of use I synched with my PC again. This time when iTunes started up it had lost my music library and acted as if the ipad had never been synched with the PC before. I then added my iTunes library back and it still did not recognize my ipad. My other devices (iPhone) do not seem to be impacted. I have restored the ipad device twice and each time when I connect to the pc the second time after restore the same thing happens.Any suggestion? Is this a ipad or a pc issue?Thanks ipad iOS 4...|ipad-synch-issue

Why cant you synch your ipad with your IPod without a computer. We bought an ipad thinking we could travel with it and the IPod. Then we could download new Pod casts or songs from Itunes on the ipad and then synch them with the IPod. But you cant do that. This seems absurd. We returned the ipad.

I just recently purchased an ipad and had to update my operating system to be able to synch it to my ipad. Did that and updated to the latest version of Itunes as well. When I went to synch my ipad it would not show up in Itunes. I then tried my Iphone which I had no problems with in the past with synching. It would not appear either. I did some research and uninstalled and re-installed Itunes and everything worked great for both devices. I tried again last night to synch both devices and again had the same problem.
