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. I dont want to have to buy the apps again just to get them on the iPad anyone got any clues/advice?RegardsDave Toshiba Windows XP Pro...|syncing-apps-partly-successful-unknown-error-occurred-50-ipad
