Question: Error 1656??

Hello,


My Ipad I has frozen and become unresponsive. I tried to restore its files, but a window came up stating "The Ipad could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1656)".


What can I do?


Thanks!

iPad

This error does not seem to be listed in Apple's help pages. Nor did a Google search reveal an answer. Is you iPad jailbroken?

Hi Tom,


thanks for trying to look into this!


You're right, nothing in the Help pages... helped me!


I resolved to call the Apple help line, and to my surprise, not only did I speak to a human person within 2 minutes, but she resolved the problem!


I only needed to turn off my Norton antivirus software, and voila!!


Cheers,


Pat
