My new 64Gb WiFi + 3G iPad 2 arrived today. But I cannot connect to it from iTunes on my Mac.
I have the latest version of iTunes installed (I checked) and before I connected the iPad 2 I did a final sync with my iPad 1 and that went fine.
Next, I plugged in the new iPad 2 using the USB2 cable. The iPad 2 started up, and said No SIM card. Fine, I just want to set it up and get my apps transferred across, so I tapped OK. Then a white window popped up with a Continue button on it, but nothing happened at all. It was as though things were dead. So I unmounted the iPad2 from iTunes, restarted the iPad 2 and rebooted the iMac and from then on connecting the iPad 2 with the cable to the iMac had absolutely no effect at all.
It is as if the iPad2 is not connected to the iMac at all.
Because I have an original iPad I thought it would be possible to setup the new iPad2 from the backup of the iPad 1 but this cannot happen if the darned thing won't even connect to iTunes.
The iPad 2 User Guide makes no mention of setting up an iPad if you already have one. It is as if Apple forgot people might buy a second one for the family to use.
Please can someone help me urgently? I do not need to use the 3G capability for some time, but will connect when away from my iMac using WiFi. The setup I want to do now is to just get the thing working.
