How to transfer your iPad 1 data to iPad 2

OK, so you just replaced your antiquated, not-even-a-year-old iPad with a brand new iPad 2.

To complete the succession, you have one last task to complete: to transfer all your apps, music, movies and settings from that archaic piece of "technology" (that was never good enough for you, anyway) to your new honey, who's going to love you forever.

It's not stated in the video, but make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed on your PC. Also, just to be completely safe, go ahead and upgrade your current iPad to the latest iOS version as well.

This is a very simple and straightforward process, so if you're familiar with iTunes and backing up or restoring data on your iPad or iPhone, this won't blow your mind.

However, some of us simply plug our iPads/iPhones into our PCs, have them auto-sync and never think twice about it. This video is for you guys.

I tried that, but seems like the ipad 2 had the old software, and I upgraded my ipad 1 last year to the new software, son when I tried to transfer the data from the old one (ipad 1 with new software) to the new one (ipad 2 with old software) it showed me a message that i should upgrade the software of the ipad 2. To do so, I had to select the option "register as a new ipad", after that and after upgrading the software, there was no more message to "restore from the backup of ipad 1". So I´m stucked! I can´t transfer my data from my old ipad to my new one. Anyone who could help me???

Hmmm!
A video specifically for the iPad. - Using flash?

Exactly... Now would be a great opportunity to request a Cnet app for the iPad, and a fully featured one at that, not like the almost completely useless one for the iPhone.

We agree, so know that new apps for all platforms are being worked on now. Stay tuned.
