The other 60% of the time, I just get an error message in iTunes saying that my iPhone/iPad can't be found.
Other times, they just don't show up at all under the devices heading in iTunes.
I started having the issue when I got my iPad 3... bit me again today. I run iTunes, my iPad shows up, I can see the summary page and all the info it correct. I hit Sync and it thermometers for a while then tells me it can't find my iPad! THEN it deletes the Device entry in the left hand sidebar.
Went to the iPad to make sure it had network connectivity, it did. THEN it again showed up in iTunes.
Prior to 10.6.1, it almost never actually did show up (via my LAN). I read a hint on the fruit's forums about needing to totally power down the device. THAT seemed to work, before I go to sleep, I power it off, awakening it the next morning when I toss it on the charger. Unsure if I will HAVE to keep doing that or not. Oh, I also played with the "gotta plug it in to WiFi sync" and found that Action to be pointless. There really is no reason one should have to do that...
As someone who has been with the platform since May 1984, I must say the current state of their software is simply god awful. Not to mention how they actually severely penalize users for having Mac computers... my machine is all of 15 months old and I can NOT use iCloud while a 7-8 year old Windows machine CAN do iCloud... how frakked up is that?
