Try restarting your Mac.
Then try a restore again.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 9, 2011 3:44 PM (in response to Carolyn Samit)I have tried a cold restart after both were off for 4 hours and multiple restarts
I have tried SIX restores
If I try to charge it, the iPad screen stays black.
The iPad has NO serial number or any other info
I do have the latest iTunesG4 1.8 Ghz dual Quicksilver/wifi iPad, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 1.12 GB ram, 1.33 TB storage on 2 internal, 2 extenal firewire, iPad
Currently Being ModeratedMar 9, 2011 6:58 PM (in response to Derryl S)After 10 attempts to restore and 5 restarts, I finally got the iPad to be found and respond. I am now trying to get everything arranged back the way it was. iOS 4.3 got installed and the capacity, size and serial number are back.
Which apps were loaded, and their arrangement is NOT restored and this can be very tedious. Everything was unchecked in iTunes.
Not happy, but i am the road back to where things were.G4 1.8 Ghz dual Quicksilver/wifi iPad, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 1.12 GB ram, 1.33 TB storage on 2 internal, 2 extenal firewire, iPad

i am having the same issues. Had to go to a different computer to restore. Now I am back to the original machine trying to sync. Looks like it is randomly adding the apps and all the folders gone . I thought apple was bulletproof. Very dissaponted!!!!

Derryl, could you please tell more about way you fixed it? I have same problem now, tried everything (DFU, different PCs, redownloading updates), but my iPad 2 is still not updating

I've had the same issue. How do you made a copy of my last good iPad back up and have it in reserve? Thanks in advance

As I stated, I finally got the iPad to update after 10 retries.
Don't know why it worked, but that fixed it and not had the problem since

Had the same problem. I deleted the Apple usb driver and reconnected the ipad. It installed a new driver and restored the ipad to factory settings. I then restored a backup I had.

An additional observation after another updater failure. Do NOT update on a shared USB port. I have a USB dongle to let let multiple USB devices be on one port. This will not work. Plug iPad directly into a USB port or it will probably fail. This is probably the same reason you can't plug into a keyboard USB port as not enough power to run the operation.

Same problem with my original iPad, although I'm on attempt 17, with 14 restarts, and still no progress. I've used both my wife's and my mac, but still nothing doing. I keept getting the same error message, "The iPad 'iPad' could not be restored. An unknown error has occurred (1)." Help!

Jemahfouz, my Ipad 2 was replaced. They said it was something with memory, so I brought it to store and got new one.

Solution to the same problem was that I was connected to a USB hub. So I connected directly to the computer and it restored no problem.

I have the same problem. I was updating to 5.0 at the time.
