I am trying to connect my iPad2 and iPhone 4S to my Windows 7 (64bit) computer via bluetooth. The only driver that will not install correctly is the bluetooth peripheral driver. Windows is telling me that the driver can not be found and it will not recognize the iPad2 or iPhone 4S or Apple or MAC as the manufacturer. I have exhaustedly looked through pages and pages of what Apple thinks are related topics but my research has been futile.
Info: Windows 7 & iOS 5 (ipad 2 & iPho 4S, iOS 5.0.1
I know its early days and 4.2 is not available yet, but apple have posted a new 4.2 page showing the changes etc. My question is will the print over wifi require a pc/mac as a bridge to the printer or will the print file go directly to a wifi enabled printer? If its a direct link will the printer drivers need to be loaded onto the ipad? What do the current printer apps do?
Sony replaced my broken laptop with a new Vaio Fit 15E and after setting it all up i went to plug my Ipad in and it doesn't install the drivers or show up in itunes, it just makes the bong sound that your computer makes when you unplug a USB device. But over and over.
Windows 8.1 . I made sure i ran all sony updates, all windows updates, and all driver updates but nothing..Ipad still connects on my very old toshiba..Can i download the drivers from the net?
I am really getting ticked. I purchased the top end iPad a couple of months ago. Paid 1100 for an over glorified Laptop, including extended warranty from the dealer and......if crashes my laptop. I have been completely unable to use or sync my iPad with my Laptop. It's a Windows XP Pro with SP3. It sees the iPad as a digital camera and proptly causes the Blue Screen with a stop error code of 0X0000007E. No file name just the usual assortment of 4 other numbers. Nano attaches fine, Touch attaches fine. Have taken all kinds of advice from others to no avail. Ready to skip this thing across a lake. Is this what owning an Apple is like? Before you blame "Windows", it would appear to be a driver issue of some kind. That is supposed to be Apple's responsibility, isn't it? I have removed everything, in an order specified by this site, reinstalled the latest of everything.....same result. Is there anyone out there that has experienced this problem and lived to tell about it?
I'm a fairly new iPad2 owner and I'm really enjoying getting to grips with the device. I have successfully updated to ios5 and everything has been functioning well with no issues.
Something strange started happening yesterday, when I open a new tab in safari the new page has links to windows and hotmail embedded in the top. I'm not sure how it has happened, it doesn't seem to have any effect on browsing but I'm a bit concerned as it doesn't seem right.
I already have a dock - I'm interested in the bluetooth keyboard, but won't be using it all the time. I'd like to use it sometimes and use the onscreen at other times (on the go or for quick text). To do this, do I need to disable/enable bluetooth each time? Does bluetooth enabled drain the battery faster (and if so, by how much)? If I disable bluetooth and then re-enable it, do I need to re-sync the keyboard or will it remember the settings?
I was wondering if you can use the bluetooth capability in the Ipad to access a bluetooth hard drive or flash drive for extra storage? If not do they have any plans to make this available in future updates. Just curious. I am going to be doing some camping and would like to be able to store extra movies and such on my Ipad.
I'm planning to put a text-to-speech program (proloquo2go) on an iPad, as its used to communicate with it has a really good system for making sentences quick,if the iPad has Bluetooth inside and another PC has Bluetooth enabled is there a way for them to find each other so I could use my iPad to send full sentences into text box,of another computer?,if BB and iPad both have Bluetooth switched on, is there a way they could find each other so I can again compose messages on ipad and then send it to the BB to send as a text message.If not,what exactly are the Bluetooth features meant to do on these devices.
I would like to buy a set of nice wireless stereo headphones for use with the new iPad 3. However I've been reading some technical articles about the shortcomings of Bluetooth A2DP (specifically lag more than anything). There is a great article from 2008 over here about it. [URL]
It seems the only choice we have currently for low lag, high quality Stereo headsets are to use Apt-X headsets (like Sennheiser PX 210 BT Apt-X) along with a dongle to give the iPad Apt-X compression ability.
It seems mad to me that the newest iPad and iPhone 4s don't support Apt-X natively yet, although they include Bluetooth 4.0 as standard which hardly anyone else uses yet.I'd love to be able to use Bluetooth 4.0 if that enables low lag stereo audio, but of course there aren't any BT4.0 headphones out there yet to test this.
The reason I need low lag is I want to use them when playing games, and obviously I don't want to be hearing sounds 0.5 seconds later than they occur in-game. Does anyone here have any real experience of the Apt-X solutions in relation to lag and sound quality? Also is the dongle a battery drain?
I've got a bluetooth keyboard dock combo; and a regular bluetooth keyboard for my ipad. Sometimes when its docked in the combo; but still connected via bluetooth to the other keyboard; I'll get a continuous key repeat when entering data into a password field. It'll just go on and on. I have to disconnect it from bluetooth keyboard; and all is fixed. A bug?

I can't see anything on Apple's website about the iPad having bluetooth, but surely it does have it, I hope? It would be nice to listen to music without a wire running to the device, and who knows, perhaps Skype or Vonage could be ported to it, and it could become your phone...
I'm considering getting an iPad as a present for my parents when it's released in the UK. I think they would love to use it for the web, news and encyclopedia apps, e-mail, photos, books, and watching BBC iPlayer and other videos.However... they don't have a Windows PC or Mac (they do have an old PC running Ubuntu which they use for a bit of web browsing and digital photos).
Do you reckon it's feasible to use an iPad + camera connector kit without easy access to a computer running iTunes?I could bring my MacBook round to do the initial setup and install software updates, and perform occasional backups.If necessary I could probably set their PC to dual-boot into Windows - but it's taken a while for my mother to feel confident using Firefox on Ubuntu, so I'm hesitant to introduce another completely different desktop OS to her now, and my dad is fairly anti-Microsoft too.
I want an iPad, and have an intel iMac, but its level OS is 10.4.11. I know this is too low for an iPad. However, I ALSO have a laptop running WinXP SP3, which satisfies iPad requirements.I DO plan to either upgrade my mac OS, or buy a new iMacMacBook sometime soon (and I'd then start using my iPad with that), so in the meantime, I'd use the iPad with my PC.My question is this...Can I use an iPad with a PC for a while, then stop using it that way, and start using it with a Mac from that point on? First of all, is that even possible? I don't see anything when purchasing an iPad that you have to pick a PC or Mac "flavour".Secondly, if it IS possible, what ramifications should I be aware of? The only thing I really plan to use the iPad for is to view PDFs (electronic music charts, while performing, to be specific). I don't expect to have tons of apps, or an entire music library, etc.
So I was filling out a job application yesterday using my ipad 2. I came to part of the application that required a 2nd pop up window to open, but no matter what I did, I could not get the pop up window to open on my ipad 2, so I had to come home and do the application all over again from my PC.
Is there any way to allow for pop up windows on the ipad 2?
