i got the new iPad (3) and on the initializing i trying to restore from my itunes backup of my older iPad 2.


after backing up the iPad 2, i connected the new iPad and clicked restore from the backup file i chose, it starts to do the back up and then pops up an error message saying:

This iPad could not be restored because the backup file is either corrupted or the ipad device that is restored is not supported


i used different backup files, and i tried backing up afresh, but the error remain the same.


anyone had this problem or know how to solve it ?  will truly appreciated.





iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi + Cellular, iOS 5.1.1
