    Hi guys,

    I wonder if anyone can help?!

    I've got an iPad 2 and last night plugged it into iTunes (PC) which wanted to do an update, after it sitting there for a couple of hours seemingly doing nothing I ended up having to exit and turn the PC off - Now it appears my iPad is bricked and no matter if I hard reset it, it still asks for iTunes connection as if it's a new device...

    The problem is the second I have it plugged in and turn on iTunes my PC instantly Blue-screen crashes. I can have iTunes open, I can have the iPad connected via USB, but if both at the same time instant crash.

    So now I'm left with an unusable iPad that needs connection to iTunes... But can't connect to iTunes. Any suggestions?

    (I hate iTunes, I hate iDevice reliance on iTunes, it's everyone I know's biggest problem with Apple products! :mad:)
