Well I got my ipad, and i forgot the passcode!

 

I've tried plugging it in my computer. but it says "iPad cannot connect because there needs to be a passcode, type your passcode to continue" and I dont know what to do!

 

I've tried all my passcodes I have thought of and had.

 

Do I need to take this to an apple store?

 

Or is there an easier way?

If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present.

If you've forgotten the passcode then you will need to connect the iPad to the computer that you normally sync to and you should then be able to reset the iPad and re-sync your content to it (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1212) - you may need to put the iPad into recovery mode : http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1808
