    I ve just spent an afternoon following instructions on how to download my old DVD s onto the ipad, using hand brake. I finally arrived at the point of syncing to my ipad, only to find there isn't any sign of a device on my laptop. Any ideas how to put it on or do I spend another frustrating day, losing my temper! And please answer in English- I'm too old and doddery to understand computer speak. No initials, no new words or technical lingo.

    Some things to check / try:

    -- Make sure iTunes is running on your PC

    -- If it is, try a restart of the PC and a reconnect of the iPad

    -- If it's still not being seen, try a different USB port on the PC

    -- Try a different sync cable if you have one available

    Some things that would be useful to know to help further:

    -- Are you using a Windows PC or a Mac?

    -- Has the iPad ever been recognized properly on that PC?

    -- Do you see any error messages in iTunes?
