Can anyone help with the problem of a constant restart each time I try to syn the pad? Its been like this for a while so ive avoided syncing, but now 3.2.2 is here id like to install it in the hope it may resolve the issue. Trouble is every time the iPad connects the cycle of black screen returns with the never ceasing circle. Ive tried downloading iTunes again, resetting the iPad and im now slowing deleting all the apps to see if there is a conflict somewhere. Any ideas anyone? iPhone syncs fine by the way.

    Try this:
    • Turn the iPad off and on again (hold the sleep/wake button for about 3 seconds until a red slider appears with the label "slide to power off")

    • If it din't help, try a hard reset - hold the sleep/wake button and the home button simultaneously for about 6 seconds, until the iPad tunes off. Then turn it on again.

    • Go to "Settings - General - Reset" and choose "Reset All Settings"

    In a different discussion someone mentioned it was a corrupt photo. I had the same issues, my iPad would reboot after each sync. I tried to delete all photos, but the problem wasn't solved.

    What worked for me was to restore the iPad using iTunes. I deleted all photos first. First make a backup then restore. It will restore it to what it was before including all apps, settings, data, email and so on. So don't worry.

    After I restored, I added all my photos again, one folder at a time to see if I could find any corrupt files, but no issues at all. Syncing is very quick and no reboots any more. So definitely not an issue of corrupt files.

    Ok, I see, you have a PowerBook and a Mini… have you tried it with both computers?
    Also check if it works with your iPhone cable?
