Upgraded today to Itunes 10, and now my ipad doesn't show up in Itunes.
It seems every upgrade causes problems these days. This is not acceptable.

I don't have time to reinstall every piece of apple software and reinstall it. I'll just sell the ipad and get a Linux tablet when it comes out.

Apple is becoming the new Windows.

Any solution?

Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Ipad

    HI,

    Since you've been having problems with your iPad for awhile as noted here;

    http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=11983202#11983202

    Might be a good idea to take it to an Apple store or Apple certified repair provider.

    Maybe it causes problems for you, because you have a defective iPad. I have not had a single problem with any upgrade since I got the original iPad. Same with my iPhone. Apple is far from the new Windows.

    You're not willing to fix your issues, so complaining here is not very useful.
  • ZDarton Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Thanks for your suggestions. Stop complaining and just assume I have a defective Ipad. Excellent advise. Thanks.

    I guess I am the only one who has issues with my Ipad? Funny, a google search brings up a lot of people who have issues with Apple. I had an issue with my iphone upgrading to the new OS too.

    And now, I am trying to upgrade my Ipad to the new upgrade, and it is stuck at the 90% mark.

    So, I will take my iphone and my ipad and drive the 20 miles to the Apple Store and tell them I have defective equipment.

    We will see how far that gets me.

    OK, I am going to find a real forum where people try to help out instead of drinking the Apple flavored Cool aid.

    Peace.

    You may have a valid problem and in all fairness no one should have such issues when upgrading software or hardware. however the fact of the matter is no hardware or software is perfect and it cannot be tested for every single users situation so some people unfortunately are bound to have issues.

    Having said that just blatantly blaming the hardware/software and/or the company isn't going to get you anywhere. Not to mention just because you're having an issue with your iPad doesn't automatically make Apple and it's products as bad as Windows based products.

    I've been using Apple based products ( desktops, laptops, phones, tablets, mice, keyboards etc. ) for over five years now and the number of issues I've had are a minute fractions of all the problems and headaches I had using Windows based products.

    People here are more then willing to help but it doesn't do any good for your cause if you just go on bashing the products and the company who makes them without giving them a fair chance and letting other people help you resolve the issues.

    I am having the same issue. Sadly it is not a rash judgement to blame the software when that is the only thing that changed. I have had repeated issues with upgraded to ipad and itunes. Apple sure does seem to be the new Microsoft and blaming it on a defective hw or a user that isn't afraid to say apple isn't golden is sad.

    Bickering aside are there any solutions?

  • AKchowd Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    No solutions that I'm aware of yet. I'm in the midst of reinstalling iTunes for the third time in the past week. Like some in this forum, I drank the Kool-Aid (a thousand years ago when I was in middle school) and it's fine to be dedicated to a company/product/philosophy...but to blindly admonish someone who's frustrated because it couldn't POSSIBLY be a screw-up by the company is just blind idolatry. Apple, and those quick to heap scorn upon people like ZDarton, would do well to listen to those who are having sub-par experiences.

    But I'm sure it's me and I should just take my gripes elsewhere, right? Thanks for the help.

    Found a solution, ZDarton (no thanks to you, Orange Marlin):
    "Apple support was totally useless. Finally found advice online: Do a Software Update and installed "SDK Compatibility Update" for iPhone. This solved the problem."

    Here's the thread:
    http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2575501&tstart=0

    I just tried it and it worked.

    Did you forget to sell your soul to Apple?? I think that`s probably the problem.
    As long as you give them complete and utter allegiance everything should ALWAYS work PERFECTLY. lol

     

    jk, seriously though, I had the same problem and the directions here fixed the issue for me http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808
