Syncing with ios5 erased my ipad, now what

I was syncing my ipad to install ios5 and it erased my ipad back to nothing, now when i try to log in, it doesnt even recognize my card ro apple ID so i can't download any apps.
What can i do

This will explain how you can restore from a backup. Typically, iTunes will backup your iPad before an update and then sync all of your iTunes content back onto the device at the end of the process.

If you had never synced with iTunes before you updated the iPad, that may be why the device was erased  - if there was no content in your iTunes library. You can download much of your purchased content again if it isn't in iTunes on your computer. You can read about that here.

    Hmm.. Thank you for the response.
    Have you tried using the iPod with another user account or computer, to help narrow down whether the problem lies with the computer, account, or the iPod itself?
    Maybe try reformatting it, using the tools provided by Windows. Instructions on how to reformat your iPod can be found in this article.

    Do you not want a backup of the iTunes content on your computer in the event the iPad is lost, stolen, or simply fails?

    I'm having the same, identical problem. It goes into step 2 (backing up process) then it goes back to step one (finding iPad) and it starts over again. It will just keep doing that for 3 or 4 times until it will say "iPad not found". This is so frustrating.

    You don't sync the MM calendar anymore, you subscribe to it in iCal,
    iCal>Preferences>Accounts, enter the details here.
    MM should be the default calendar on all clients.

    Did you try connecting the iPad to your computer and launch iTunes and see what happens? I assume that you will have to restore in this case but you can try that and see what happens first.
    This article explains the restore process.

  • HT1296 After downloading iTunes 11, my calendar on my iMac (OS X 10.6.8) does not sync with iCal on my iPad 2.  Why is this?

    After downloading iTunes 11, my calendar on my iMac (OS X 10.6.8) does not sync with iCal on my iPad 2.  Why is this?

    Ok, here's what seems to have worked....but will need to monitor to see if this stays "stable".
    1)  As suggested by King_Penguin in another Discussion thread  [apple support > iPad > Using iPad > Discussions]  (https://discussions.apple.com/message/15911962#15911962), I turned off iPhoto startup on the iPhone.  Then ejected iPhone from USB.
    2)  Reconnected iPhone via USB.  iTunes did not start up.  Started up iTunes manually.  Went to Summary page for iPhone, unchecked the "open iTunes" option, selected APPLY button.  Let iTunes run its application process.
    3)  Then checked the "open iTunes" option.  Selected APPLY button.  Got a dialog box asking if I wanted "iTunes Helper" to be installed; selected YES.  Let iTunes run its application process. Ejected iPhone.  Closed out iTunes.  Reconnected iPhone via USB.  AND iTunes STARTED UP AUTOMATICALLY (yay!).  Let iTunes do some backup and sync'ing.  Ejected iPhone.  Closed out iTunes.
    4)  Connected iPad via USB (on computer).  AND iTunes STARTED UP AUTOMATICALLY (yay!).
    I don't know for sure that the iPhoto "automatic launch" was causing the interference, but it seems like the "uncheck/check" the "open iTunes" option seemed to re-set the problem that I encountered.  I don't want to say for sure that this issue is fixed, but it appears to be under control for the moment.
    Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and assistance.  Maybe this info will help someone else out now that it's in the forums/discussions.

  • Is there a good texting app for a Macbook air that will sync with my iPhone and iPad iMessage and SMS?

    is there a good texting app for a Macbook air that will sync with my iPhone and iPad iMessage and SMS?

    Hey bishopcheen,
    Great question! Apple has announced that these features are coming in iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. For more information, check out the “Messages” section of this page:
    Apple - OS X Yosemite - Apps
    http://www.apple.com/osx/preview/apps/
    Messages gives you so many ways to start a conversation. When your iPhone is nearby, you can send a text message from your Mac to groups of friends, even if they use SMS. Or send a photo of your epic karaoke birthday party, then follow it up with a Soundbite audio clip of your encore performance. With Messages, it’s not just what you say, it’s however you want to say it.
    Now every message on your iPhone appears on your Mac.
    Messages on your Mac has always been a great way to stay in touch. But friends without iMessage couldn’t be part of the conversation. Well, now they can be. All the SMS and MMS messages you receive on your iPhone now appear on your Mac. So you can text any friend without picking up your iPhone. And the conversation stays up to date across all your devices.
    iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite are coming this fall. I hope you are as excited as I am!
    Thanks,
    Matt M.

  • Why doesn't my calendar sync with my iphone or iPad?

    When I make an calendar entry on my Mac (Lion) is doesn't automatically sync with my iphone or ipad. But if I make the entry on the iphone/ipad first, it will show up in my calendar on the Mac. What have I not done right?

    On your Mac open System Preferences > iCloud
    Deselect Calendars then reselect.
    On both the iPhone and iPad, tap Settings > iCloud
    Switch Calendars off then back on.
    Give iCloud a few minutes to re sync the data.

  • ICal on my iPhone does not sync with my Mac or iPad.  I am using the cloud.

    My iCal calendar on my iPhone does not sync with my Mac or iPad.  I am on the cloud and every
    thing else is syncing.  I've looked at preferences and everything looks right...

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    First check that all your settings are correct, that calendar syncing is checked on all devices (system preferences > iCloud on a mac and settings > iCloud on a iPhone, iPad or iPod).
    Make sure the calendars you are using are in your 'iCloud' account and not an 'On My Mac', 'On My Phone' or other non iCloud account (you can do this by clicking/tapping the calendar button in the top left corner of the application ), non iCloud calendars will not sync.
    If you are sure that everything is set up correctly and your calendars are in the iCloud account, you might try unchecking calendar syncing in the iCloud settings, restarting your device and then re-enabling calendar syncing settings.

    Syncing to a new computer should give you the opportunity to replace the exisiting contents with the new.
