    When you connect it to your computer let it do all the picture transfer, etc. Then, in iTunes, you will see the name of your iPad in the DEVICES frame on the far left. If it hasn't already popped open a box asking if you want to update, click on the name of your iPad and then click on Update in the summary tab to the right.

     

    Make sure you have iTunes 10.5 installed before you start this.

    Your home computer needs iTunes 10.5.

    Assuming this is a Windows computer, open iTunes (which should briefly give the version when you open it), click on the Help menu at the top then About. It will show you the version. You are looking for 10.5

    I have a Brother printer that is compatible (I can print wirelessly from my g4 laptop) but can't from my original iPad. It has ios5. I installed AirPrint but when I tell it to print, it cannot find the printer. I tried "rebooting" by holding down the button on the upper right top then pwering off, and then back on. But it didn't resolve this. What should I try next? Thanks, Vicki

    Simply because it is wireless does not mean it has AirPrint.

     

    How did you "install AirPrint", because you can't?

    If your printer is on the compable list (http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4356), make sure you have installed the latest firmware on the printer.  If you are using a 3rd party software package on your PC such as AirPrint Activator, FingerPrint, etc. make sure you are using the lates version.  After upgrading to iOS 6, I had to upgrade to the latest version of FingerPrint to get it to work.
