    Same issue as all above

    @Jaoros: Fresh startup makes no difference. Turned on my PC after being shutdown for a week (I was on vacation.) After booting, I synced my iPhone 3GS, caught the iOS upgrade, disabled virus software (from previous issues w/ iOS upgrades), and installed it. I then attempted to sync my iPad 2 in order to upgrade the iOS...to no avail.

    If anything, that moron at the Apple store makes me sure I would not buy a Mac.
    So far with USB power hibernation mode disabled it is still working for me.
    When it did not work I would know right away because the pc would not chime twice when I plug in the iPad.
    Now, so far, I get two chimes every time.
    I agree with you in the fact that I had a first gen iPad for 3 days before I returned it and that one had no problems.

    From reviewing http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/239547.htm it looks like the issue may be in the apple mobile device support service. This is specific to Win 7x64 - I don't know if it'll fix 32-bit installations. I have not yet tried this...

    Follow-up: Is anyone running Windows 32-bit that has this issue?

    I have the same problem, but initially iTunes did recognize the Ipad, set it up and then locked up. When I unplugged and replugged it- it decided that it was a iPhone and needed to be restored to it's original settings. Any ideas what I should do? I've unplugged, replugged, plugged the USB in the back, etc.

    I just received my IPAD2 yesterday and had the same problems. I followed the examples and trouble shoots with no luck. This worked for me and maybe it will help others.

    Go to your device manager and click on your USB controllers. I found IPAD USB showed a yellow exclamation icon. Once I clicked on the error the system fixed itself and sync with the IPAD 2.

    Hope this helps others.

    @lightskies: No luck for me there. This is on a separate (work) Win7x64 install with latest iTunes clean installed followed by iPhone4 connect (works), then iPad2 (freezes). The USB device shows no errors.

    Here is something else I noticed.
    It seems to work much better if the iPad is plugged in already before I start looney tunes.
    So far if I plug it in first and I get the two chirps, iTunes will always see it.
    No chirps, no iTunes.
    Sometimes iTunes seems to hand when it docent work and if I unplug the iPad, instantly iTunes will work.

    I thank the Lord I'm not the only one dealing with this. I was about to go crazy over this. I"ve had this issue for weeks now. Back and forth back and forth. The worst part of it all is when I have to restore and rebuild my Ipad settings.

    I"m running:
    Dell XPS 14 - 64bit windows 7
    The latest Itunes.

    This is the 5th time I'm restoring my Ipad.
    I'm scared to sync with Itunes.

    Has Apple acknowledged this problem?
