I had a similar problem with my IPAD 4. Strangely it connected to ITunes on my desk top but not my lap top. The problem was a missing device driver.
With my IPad connected to my lap top,I went to Control Panel, Devices and Printers, there I could see that an IPad was connected but had no driver associated with it. From that display I simply asked it to find the new device driver. Which it did and now all is fine.
wondering if newer iTunes 11.x fixed it?
Hi I am not sure what the problem is but synchronization in IPad means that your able to see your IPad when it is connected to your PC, when you start the iTunes(installed in your PC)

that I have 20 Songs in my PC and start iTunes
then I connect my IPad to my PC
Now my IPad should be visible in the iTunes App in my PC
Now if I click on the Sync Button in the iTunes then it should sync all the songs on my IPad to all the songs on my PC
this way now I have the same 20 songs in my IPad now
if you are able to perform this kind of sync then your PC is recognizing your IPad correctly, just don't know why it is not getting displayed in My Computer
if your not able to perform this kind of sync then you might want to update your iTunes
Also I don't think IPad or iTunes allow you to simply copy paste your contents from IPad TO PC or from PC TO IPad, you need certain Apps(depending on what you want to transfer) in your IPad if you wish to perform any copy paste operation
Hope this helps
No, it will never show in "My Computer" as it is not a Windows device. You communicate with the iPad via iTunes. Period, no other way other than perhaps wifi syncing it.
