    You need to provide us with more information in a clear format.  Right now you are talking about upgrading your iPad but saying your computer won't do it and I am not clear what it is you are trying to do with what.  What exact error message are you seeing (quote it exactly) and what exactly are you doing when you see this?

    Are you running a Mac or a PC?  If a Mac, get more information about your computer. Go to the Apple in the upper left corner of any window, then  "About This Mac".  Write down what it says about "version"and report that here.  Now continue to "More Info..."  Copy and paste the information here, but omit the serial number and Hardware UUID (if present).  If a PC I can request your post be moved to the iTunes for Windows forum.

    You have gone as far as you can go in terms of computer operating system, and I would also look into getting more RAM (memory) because you are running at minimum and most people with your machine would have at least 3x that much.


    This is likely the last iTunes upgrade you will ever do on that machine:

    iTunes -


    You're okay to run iOS6 with this but don't buy newer Apple idevices or do more iOS upgrades (iOS7 when it appears) until you first review your hardware situation because you may find you can no longer update all components and you will find something is inoperable.
