    So I updated the iPad, but whenever I sync now, I get the message

    [​IMG]

    I've restored the iPad, restarted iTunes, restarted the computer, but apparently there is something squiffy, and I can't figure it out.

    Anyone help? The iPad works fine, with all my apps on there, in their folders, etc, so I can't see anything that shouts out.

    Many thanks


    ALL RESOLVED. THANKS FORMFOLKS WHO CONTRIBUTED

    Do you have any restrictions on your iPad? I found a thread in the Apple Support Forums that seems to include a resolution for a similar error message:

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the reply. Restrictions were already set to enable. I might have to try it just as a brand new iPad, and resync everything, and see how that goes.

    ITunes seems to spin it's little wheel when plugged in, so maybe an iTunes issue? Any idea how to give iTunes a kick in the pants?

    Well, redid the iPad as a totally new device, everything synced to the pad including apps, and yet when I go to sync again, I get the same message. Reinstalling iTunes next.

    Sorry for the delayed response. Did you try disabling Restrictions and then syncing?

    Yup. Tried that, thanks. Reinstalling iTunes didn't help either. Are there any preference files I can bin, or would dumping the library file work?

    Are you syncing via USB or wifi? I get this error quite frequently when syncing via wifi. Switching to USB seems to make everything fine (for a while).

    @gentlefury

    It was done over USB originally.

    The update is done now. Saying 5.0.1. I've already done a full erase, etc, in restore, but either from a backup, or as a new device, it still does it. iTunes syncs the apps onto the device without issue. It is only when I come to sync again I get the problem. All the apps are working, and I'm typing this out on the iPad. It's annoying me.

    I've a feeling that maybe a file corrupted in iTunes, and that maybe what the issue is, maybe? Can I move the XML file elsewhere, and then reopen iTunes to make a new one? Reckon that would help?

    Well, seems to be sorted now. Was hanging up when trying to back up to iTunes. Put the backup through to iCloud, and bypassed that step. After that, the same problem with "apps not determined". So, manually deleted all the apps from the device, thinking if something is corrupted there, maybe having no apps will sort it. It did. Removed all apps and synced. No bother. Added a few to try, and no bother. So added all the apps back to what it was, and it's been fine the last 20 minutes.

    So presumably there is something either on iTunes, or the iPad that was corrupted and needed all apps to be removed before it would fix itself, or repopulate.

    Thanks for folks help.
