This worked for me. I had to do the process two times. The first time - it downloaded the new OS version and the second time it actually uploaded it on the iPad. Great advice. Thanks Diavonex!!

I have forgotten my passcode. I have also lost the tries. My iPad is disabled now. I tried to restore it with iTunes. I have never syncronized it before to any computer.
I have started restoring it, followed the steps, but with no luck.
After I saw the Connect to the iTunes screen, I pluged the cable, thefollowed the prompts. It starts for a few minute, then the Connect to iTunes screen disappears, and the normal screen with "the iPad is disabled" is displayed. The iTunes page is still working and the (Downloading1 item) is still working. It says it needs 5 hours, the downloading lines is on progress, but not sure if I haveto wait?
I have updated the iTunes in my computer. However, nothing has changed.
What do you think I should do?
Notice: My iPad is still under waranty. I got it a few months ago from Myer (Brisbane). Now I am overseas (Saudi Arabia) and will not go back to Bribane until (probably) later in the future.
