You need to upgrade to at least Mac OS X 10.5.8, and get the latest version of iTunes.
See the iPad system requirements at http://www.apple.com/ipad/specs/ , which should also be printed on the iPad box.

But how do I just upgrade to version OS x 10.5.8?

You have to buy it. 10.5 is a few years old. If your machine can handle it, a newer release would be better. At one point, OS X 10.6 was available for free, since it is required for upgrading to 10.7 or 10.8. I don't know if that offer is available anymore. Ask for it at an Apple store.

What Mac model do you have? You may be able to upgrade to an OS higher than Leopard.
Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard installation system requirements
Leopard is no longer available at the Apple Store but may be available by calling Apple Phone Sales @ 1-800-MY-APPLE (1-800-692-7753).
If you can't obtain a retail install DVD from Apple, look on eBay or Google the installer part numbers to possibly find at an on-line store. Here's what to look for:
MB427Z/A Leopard 10.5.1 install DVD
MB576Z/A Leopard 10.5.4 install DVD
MB021Z/A Leopard 10.5.6 install DVD (single user)
MB022Z/A Leopard 10.5.6 install DVD (5-user family pack)

After you install the base 10.5, download & install the 10.5.8 combo update at http://support.apple.com/downloads/Mac_OS_X_10_5_8_Combo_Update
The DVD should look like this
Caution - Leopard does not support classic mode. So, if you currently open OS 9 apps in classic mode, you won't be able to do this if you upgrade to Leopard.
