Bought my Ipad last Saterday. And updated Itunes to 10 Last Friday.
I can not see my Ipad in Itunes on the Mac.
So actually can not join my music which is of course on my mac
I could start with Ipad by using the Windows pc with Itunes 9 of my son
Seems to be a problem of Itunes 10 acc. to apple.
Has someone a solution?

    According to your profile you are running v10.6.3. Click your Apple menu  / Software Update. That will update your system to v10.6.5.

    Then repair permissions. Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac.

    Now restart the iPad.

    Now try syncing the iPad with your Mac. If that didn't help, click here

    Hi Carolyn.

    I did what you described and it works perfectly.
    Thanks for your tip.

    Finally I can try, work and play with my Ipad.

    Thanks again.
