I did try that several times and it did not work. When I get 1/3rd of the way through, I am getting a message telling me that the iPad cannot be restored without a passcode. Attached is a screenshot of what I am seeing now.
It is showing the message "iPad is disabled, Connect to iTunes".
Thanks. Trying it now
Here is the message I am getting now
"iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode. You must restore this iPad before it can be used with iTunes."
I got this message (attached screen shot) and I am going to click restore and update.
same problem. At ~ the 69th minute, I am getting a "iPad is disabled, connect to itunes message" and I am attaching a screen shot of the error message I am getting which is similar to the message I received previously.
Do you have a different computer to try with?
If not, is your present computer a windows xp/vista/7 or a Mac?
Also, is your ipad linked to icloud?
I am on a Macbook pro (latest version). I do have an iCloud. Right now I am trying to fix my Dad's iPad. I am not sure if his iPad is linked to iCloud. Mine is.
Unfortunately I am unable to get to the DFU mode. Still having troubles. I am constantly getting the "iPad is disabled message". I am wondering if I should try using another machine. I will try switching cables as well.
yes, let's try using a different computer and also try different cables...I believe the USB connection is getting dropped often.. Try a different USB port too.
This is how the ipad screen will look like when in recovery mode.
Here's how you can place it into DFU mode
I changed the USB cable and the DFU mode seems to working thus far. Screen shot of what I am seeing. I will update you when it is done.

Will do, shortly.
