windows firewall status: deactivated
I have Avira and deactivated the program (especially the firewall) as far as possible. A check showed that itunes would have privileged access in the firewall settings. I restarted the windows service 'Apple mobile device' but the itunes store still does not show up the ipad. The itunes diagnosis there is still showing the one red light 'no ipad found'
I just worked again throught the link provided by Carolyn Samit
I stumbled in the section
There i read after gettin into the device manager
'Locate the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver in this list.'
I got a whole bunch of USB things in the device manager but none of them has the word 'apple' in it. Does that really mean i have to search for some apple word in the device manager?
Maybe someone out there with a working win7/ipad/itunes system can just confirm that
a) he has some apple thing in the device manager
b) his ipad does not show up in the windows explorer
c) his ipad shows up in the section 'unspecified' in the start -> system configuration -> hardware and sound -> printers and devices
I just saw that as soon as bringing the ipad into recovery mode, itunes says 'ipad in recovery mode detected' and brings an icon in the left itunes navigation bar. But i cannot work with that. As soon as recovery mode is exited the itunes does not recognize the ipad anymore
I cannot belive i am the only one with such a massive problem
