Ok so I updated my iTunes on my (Mac Book Pro) and tried to install the new iOS on my iPad... got error 9. (((Switched cables, tried the other usb connecter... same error.))) Searched the net... everything kept saying usb issues or firewall(I don't have one). Thought maybe an issue with that computer.
So I then tried my (mac mini) that had an older iTunes and re-installed iOS 4.2 on my iPad. It worked!!!!
So I updated iTunes on the mac mini and tried to install iOS on my iPad... error 9... Now both my computers have the new iTunes and am stuck with the iPad waiting to be restored.
What is with this new iTunes/new iOS ????
Thanks for your help in advance.
