    Do you have enough free space on the iPad to allow for the updates to download? Have you tried hard-resetting your iPad? Another option would be to download the updates on your computer and sync them onto your device.

    I do have enough space. I tried that- updating them on the computer still didn't sync. .?

    What is a hard reset?

    Have you checked the right boxes to sync new applications?

    Hold down the power button and home button together. Release both buttons when you see the White Apple logo. This is what's known as a hard-reset :)

    Is the iPad jailbroken? Could you post the exact error you're seeing as well?

    The app updates you are trying to download could require OS 5.0 or higher. Make sure your IPad has the latest software update before trying to update apps.

    You would see an app compatibility error pop-up appear if the app required a newer firmware.
