i had already tried the restore Vinod , retsored the ipad from a different back up no difference . when i try and play a song the cover image of the record flashes up on the ipad and then dissapears .
if as you suggest i restore from new i am afraid i will loose all my aps that are just on my Ipad. You say i would need to sync everything again from where .
take for example paper53 if I have changed the password ***** i first got the app what will i need to do to get that back
Don't worry, Andrew. None of your apps would be lost as they are all mapped to your apple id. However, the data in the apps may be lost unless they are icloud.
Anyway, let's try a reset first. Press and hold the power button and the home button together until you see an apple logo.
Let me know whether that resolves your issue.
Are you having problems only with playing the songs?
Also, I read from your question that you might have inadvertently selected an older backup. Have you tried choosing a different backup to try with?
The problem i have is that i dont have an up to date back up .
I think that the main issue is that when I have done the restore it asks me for my a old apple d which i i havent used for 4 years everytime i switch on the ipad it asks for this info.
Do i have to reset the ipda to install a new apple id . I suspect it will be easier to get a new ipad .
the old apple id
no still cant play songs
i have gone into the the music icon and i have some albums some cover pictures have dissapeared when i click on the album it shows all the songs and the ones i have purchased . if i try to play a song by selecting it the title flashes up in the play bar and then dissaperas .
i give up
