My ipad mini is disabled, when i try and restore it with itunes it says the ipad needs to respond, i can't respond because i can't unlock it?! Help?

My ipad mini is disabled and says try again in 24,434,453 minutes?! When i try and restore it, itunes says my ipad needs to respond. i can't unlock it to respond because it's disabled?

If you're unable to do the Restore (or it doesn't help), go into Recovery Mode per the instructions here.  You WILL lose all of your data (game scores, etc,) but, for the most part, you can redownload apps and music without being charged again.  Also, read this.

  • After updating my Iphone 4s to os 7.1.1 ota, my phone went into recovery mode. Yet when I try to restore it with Itunes on my windows 7 laptop it says the network connection has been reset! My phone has the itunes logo and charger symbol on it .

    After updating my Iphone 4s to os 7.1.1 from 7.1 over the air, my phone went into recovery mode. Yet when I try to restore it with Itunes on my windows 7 laptop it says the network connection has been reset. Make sure your network settings are correct and your network is active, or try again later. My phone has the itunes logo and charger symbol on it, as well as an arrow pointing at the Itunes logo. After holding the sleep button down or even doing the hard reset the same screen comes up on my phone regardless of whether it is plugged in or not to my computer. I have turned my computer off and on again. It is plugged in and charging as it's battery life is very short. I also reset my modem and the same error message pops up. The only option on my computer when my phone is plugged in is to restore it. My firewall also allows Itunes through it. I have literally tried everything I know being someone who knows very little about technology. I also do not want to hear about how the update worked for other people. My phone has been in recovery mode for 5 hours at least now so it will just make me more frustrated if a bunch of people post about how the update worked for them.

  • When i try to play music on itunes it says the original file cant be found. I have music on exyernal dive and it is working . How can i correct this

    When i try to play music on itunes it says the original file cant be found. I have music on exyernal dive and it is working . How can i correct this?

    See if you have most of the songs with 'Exclamation' symbol precede the name under your music library.
    If so, double click a song with ! mark on side, you will be given an option to locate the file where the song is held. Select "locate" and direct it to your External Drive folder / file where the song is and open it.
    iTunes then will give you the option to use this process to update all of your library.  OK that as this will fix all automatically instead of doing them one by one.

    I don't know much about electronics either and I do not know what my operating system is, but it is iPad mini 32gb.

    It really doesn't matter what operating system you are using right now, but when you connected the iPad to your computer, did iTunes start up on its own and then give you this message?
    Start with this. Quit iTunes on your computer, and then estart your computer. Restart the iPad as well. After the computer and the iPad start up again, connect the iPad to your computer again and see what happens. Post back after you do that.
    Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.

    Try:
    - Powering off and then back on your router.
    - iTunes for Windows: iTunes cannot contact the iPhone, iPad, or iPod software update server
    - Change the DNS to either Google's or Open DNS servers
    Public DNS — Google Developers
    OpenDNS IP Addresses
    - Try on another computer/network
    - Wait if it is an Apple problem

    Hello Alark26,
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    If you're continuing to receive the error where you cannot connect to the iTunes Store, I'd like you to please follow the directions outlined below.
    Troubleshoot issues in Windows
    If you haven't been able to connect to the iTunes Store for more than a day (and other customers on our discussion boards aren't experiencing similar issues) a software or Internet service provider (ISP) configuration issue may be blocking your access to the iTunes Store. Find out which ports and servers need to be allowed for iTunes Store access.
    Update iTunes to the latest version.
    If iTunes Store appears empty and only displays the message iTunes Store, follow these steps.
    Try the steps to troubleshoot iTunes Store connectivity in Windows.
    As with all firewalls not manufactured by Apple, you may need to configure Windows Firewall to allow iTunes to access the iTunes Store. Follow these steps for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
    Try disabling any proxies built-in to Windows. You should avoid proxies because they can cause issues.
    If you're receiving a specific error message, follow these steps.
    If the issue still persists, contact your Internet service provider and confirm that these ports and serversare enabled over your network.
    Note: The hosts file may be blocking the iTunes Store.
    Microsoft's article How do I reset the hosts file back to the default? has instructions and a FixIt to have Windows try to reset the hosts defaults for you.
    Note: Some workplaces may put internal resources in the hosts file and may block iTunes Store. The FixIt doesn't work for Windows 8.
    To create a copy of your hosts file and replace it with an empty hosts file, follow the instructions below:
    You can find the hosts file at: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC.
    Select the hosts file. There should now be a duplicate of the hosts file named "Copy of hosts" (Windows XP) or "hosts-copy" (Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8).
    Drag the original hosts file to your desktop.
    Right-click the duplicate file and choose Open. You may be prompted to choose the program you want to use to open this file. Double-click Notepad.
    When Notepad opens, choose Edit > Select All.
    Choose Edit > Delete.
    Choose File > Save.
    Close Notepad.
    Right-click the duplicate file, and choose Rename.
    Type "hosts" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.
    Restart your computer and try connecting to the iTunes Store.
     If you still can't connect to the iTunes Store, your security software or firewall may be blocking the ability of iTunes to communicate with the Internet. Learn how to resolve security software issues. 
     Learn more
    If the steps above didn't resolve your issue, be sure that your specific alert isn't listed as a possible iTunes Store error. Then, if your issue is still unresolved, follow these steps.
    Can't connect to the iTunes Store - Apple Support
    Take care,

  • I was sent a .pages doc.  When I try to open it with pages I'm told "You need a newer version of Pages to open this document." I have the newest version of pages on my computer. What should I do?

    I was sent a .pages doc.  When I try to open it with pages I'm told "You need a newer version of Pages to open this document." I have the newest version of pages on my computer. What should I do?

    I wonder if you are running an OS earlier than 10.9.x?  If so, you cannot run the *latest* version of Pages, which is 5.1.  Apple is trying to get you to update your OS to 10.9 Mavericks and then get you to update (but defintiely not upgrade) your Pages version to 5.1.  5.1 is, in everything but name, beta software. It not only has many bugs, it also lacks more than 90 features that are present in version 4.3 ("Pages 09"). One workaround that is to open the file with Pages for icloud (this is explcitly beta) and click tools|download a copy in Word format.  Pages 4.3, which is probably the version you have, can open Word documents.  Get a cup of coffee or a glass of wine before starting Pages for icloud: it is s-l-o-w.
