    Its your computer, not the cable. The USB port on your computer doesn't supply enough power. Most computers don't, I know the new iMacs do however, mine works perfectly.

    I would be interested in where you heard that.

    I've been trying to find a solution and have had no success.

    A usb Y-cable adapter should increase the power going into your iPad. It's still not as good as a wall charger but it will charge it.....in a much slower pace.

    I have noticed with an old iphone car charger that I have, it says "not charging" but it actually is if you just leave it there for a while and come back and check the %

    Good point that is true for most chargers and USB ports. I think what most people don't understand is that the "Not Charging" message comes because the USB port doesn't have enough power to power the iPad AND charge simultaneously. If the iPad is sleeping, it does charge.

    If you hit the power button and put your iPad into sleep mode it will charge from your PC.

    Thanks for your advice guys. I just got a car charger and it said it wasn't charging. I was hoping to be able to use it so the kids could watch DVDs in the car. Hopefully it should still work to some extent.
