I have tried, for hours, to get my itunes on my pc to recognize my ipad and it will not.  I"ve changed cords, plugged, unplugged, turned off, turned on, shut down, restarted.....and nothing.  I've even switched usb cords.  The software update I have is IOS 5.1.1, and when I click on "software update" on the ipad, it says it's up to date. My main goal is to disable the music from downloading onto my ipad.  It takes up so much memory.  Can someone please help?...|computer-recognize-ipad

I got my mom's ipad and wanted to start with a fresh slate. I did the reset but now when I plug the ipad into my computer's USB ports (doesn't register with any of them) it doesn't even register it as charging. In a wall charge it charges just fine. My computer will not recognize the device. All I get is the "connect to itunes" screen. Please help!!
