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?

Now all the screen on the ipad shows is to connect to iTunes. It has the little usb cord pointing to iTunes. Since then I have not been able to get iTunes to recognize it. I have tried restarting my laptop, reinstalling iTunes, and even checked to make sure the ipad showed up under the device manager. Right now it is basically useless.

Okay, so after doing search on this site regarding the new 4.2 update, I must admit that I am concerned. How long does the update take to complete? How many folks out there are experiencing these freezing issues (where the ipad freezes while trying to update..often it seems to be at the 95% completion level from what Ive read on this site)? Id like the ability to multi task and the folders....BUT...not at any cost (know what I mean ). Gateway Windows Vista...|scared-update-4.2-long-update-ipad

Could they transfer these from their old iBook? For pics they take on their digital camera, can they download them from the camera to the ipad? Also, if you get attached files in email, can you save them to an ipad?
