"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are you running the latest isolation on the pad? sometimes you need to restore then as new device to get it to work.

Connect your iPad to iTunes using the provided sync/USB cable.  Click on the iPad in the source column of iTunes (where it says "Devices") and then click on the Summary pane.

Click on the button marked "Update" - if iTunes reports that you are at the latest version, let us know and we can decide what to do from there.
