    I am on a total reinstall as I write this post. Have had nothing but issues with syncing my music.. over past 3 days have backed up and reinstalled all the music.. as I had switched the Itunes to a new computer it seems to have really upset the system.

    I have about another 4 hours of down load of the music then to try and reinstall the photos from a back up drive and everything else.

    I can play my libary from the store version via wifi to the IPAD but it only has the odd songs in the ipad it's self.. Spoken to Apple a couple of times and this is the drastic step of a total reinstall. I was able to access say a vido song.. song only on the iPAD but the full version on the computer.. where as before I could hear it and see it on the IPAD on the old version.

    Anyone else having an issue?

    Do you have Zone Alarm?

    My upgrade and subsequent use has been flawless. Very impressed with iCloud. It pushes data between the macs a treat. No matter where i am or what machine is in front of me, all the files i need to crack on are there. Flawless so far.

    I am still at it at 7.15 p.m

    I am still at trying to sync the Dell to the IPAD.. it is now 7.15 p.m. and I suspect this go at the sync will take to about 11 p.m.

    I called Apple support and went through everything.. They said I was doing it as I should.. suggested a reinstall.. boy here we go again.. s that is what I did. But the music will not go from the computer Itunes library.. just seems to loop back to the computer.

    Just tried a differnt way and stopped the sync after 15 songs and they seem to be on the ipad now... but the video songs still only move the music and not the video.. still 436 songs to go.

    If no luck this time I will book a slot at the genius bar at the Apple Store at Bluewater for Friday ..take the laptop and the IPAD and let them see if they can sort it... very frustrated with it at the moment.

    I think the issue is the Windows 7 to the IPAD..as and when I can afford the MAC next year I will move over to Apple all the way.

    I had a similar problem synch my iphone to my pc, the culprit was Zone Alarm, I switched it off and the synch went ok..

    But do you know what is happening on the other stuff Chris ! ( and yes, I actually really rate Android to be honest .. I have the iPAD for convenience not cos I like or admire it particularly )

    Got all the music and videos now back on the IPAD

    Not bad 3 days in total.. but I have all the music and video/music back on the ipad.. I am now starting to load the pictures from the back up drive to the Dell then to the IPAD.. have a good 5,000 to load and the folder I am on at the moment is 1,739 (612 synced so far) of a cruise we di through the Panama Canal a couple years back.. visual memories.. stored everywhere just in case.. that was some trip .. But have lots of other visual memories to also load back on the ipad... reinstalls are not a good thing unless you really have to do them.. take for ever to get everything back in it's place.

    Love my IPAD, but it is a real issue when it decides to no play ball:whistle:

    Anyway will keep plodding at it.

Anyway at least I am back to a reasonable level.. not bad Saturday to Tuesday...wonderful.
