    Hi

    My daughter has an iPad mine and wants to connect it to her macbook, but iTunes wants to set the iPad up as new.

    I assume this is going to wipe its contents. Is there a way round this ?

    Thanks
    John

    Actually, no. Click "set up as new" and you'll get a message to the effect that the iPad is already set up. Counterintuitive, I know -- Apple needs to fix this!
