    Hello. I’m having problems entering DFU mode. I had a previous Windows XP computer in which I was having no problem to jailbreak my iPad. However I changed to a new laptop with Windows 7, re-installed redsn0w and copied the OS. When trying to enter DFU mode, it fails (nothing happens, redsn0w tells me the DFU Mode failed, No device detected, You probably misunderstood the instructions). If I go back to my old computer, everything goes smooth. Any help? Thank you in advance

    one thing you could try is that, use the latest version of Redsn0w. And i was facing the same problem before, got rid of it by re-installing iTunes. make sure that you install the latest iTunes.
