Background: When I brought my shiny new iPad home on Saturday, I plugged it into my iBook's USB port and was disappointed (but not shocked) to get a popup in iTunes 9.1 telling me that I couldn't sync the iPad since it required OSX 10.5.8 (I had 10.4.11 installed). In order to get my hands into the iPad, I decided to register/sync it on my work PC (a 10 minute bike ride away). No problems; been using my iPad fine ever since. However, I'd still like to be able to sync it at home, so that I can add some media content to it. So last night I installed 10.5 and also updated my iBook to 10.5.8 (along with all other system updates available through "system update"). Problem: Even with 10.5.8 installed, the iPad will still not sync on my home iBook. When I plug it in, the iPad beeps but indicates that it isn't charging, and the iBook loads iPhoto and attempts to sync the iPad as a camera (I have a handful of wallpapers I DLed on the iPad). Things I have tried: verified that there are no iTunes updates available turned off "automatically open iPhoto when camera is connected" in the iPhoto general preferences manual restart of iPad (holding power and home buttons for a couple of seconds) Re-authorized the iBook for my iTunes account. Using my other USB port. So the issue is that even though my computer/iTunes recognized that I'd connected an iPad when I first tried it out of the box (under 10.4.11 and iTunes 9.1), now that I've updated to 10.5.8, I can't get iTunes to recognize that the iPad has been connected at all. I also don't understand the lack of charging; apparently the iPad thinks I don't have a USB 2.0 port (even though when I bought the iBook G4, it claimed to have USB 2.0 -- and according to the specs, it should: http://support.apple.com/kb/SP81). Thoughts would be appreciated.
