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
