    How much free space do you have on your iPad?

    I had a similiar issue the first time I tried to up-date. The second time, I made sure the wifi signal was strong and had everyone else in the house get off wifi. The up-date went through fine. Also it takes a while. At times, you might think that nothing is happening. I finally just laid the iPad aside and let it do its thing.

    Is there a short in the USB cable or something? Make sure the cable is fully seated on the device and your computer and try again.

    nothing wrong with the cable because the pc detect the ipad as potable device but the itunes didn`t

    Same problem for me using wi-fi, with iPad connected to Windows laptop and iTunes. Upgrade process starts, but after 10 or 20 megs are downloaded, FAIL. Also, will not update any apps. iTunes works fine for music and podcast downloads, though.

    Turn off iPad , turn on and go straight to download update. That's what I did at work. A dozen of us downloaded it at the same time and we use a few silly slow T1s.

    If you still have issues head to the apple store.

    If Ur iPad is jail broken it won't work updating...
    first you must restore ur ipad by using using itunes on Ur PC..
    I recomen u to first back up Ur iPad with iCloud or in Pc..
    Then try updating from iTunes or straight from iPad setting which says Update software .... Hope it helps
