    Sorry, just getting back to check on the question. No, I'm not using Windows Vista. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium.

    Tried it on 2 other computers and still the same result. I'm beginning to thing it's a pin or something on the iPad also. It charges fine with the same cord plugged into the AC adapter but it just will not get noticed by the computer. I was trying to think of a way to maybe clean the connectors but can't think of a way to get to them to clean them. I blew them out with compressed air, but still didn't work.

    I had an iPod shuffle that was like that, no computer would ever list it in the iTunes window. Turns out, it somehow reverted to "Mac based" software(it was old) during a reset/restore and only a Mac would recognize it. Do you have anybody with a Mac around? Once we got it recognized, we could upgrade it's software and then my computer could see it again.

    It was weird, but it fixed it. I wasn't/am not aware that they do PC/Mac specific stuff anymore.

    Hmmm... Interesting. I'll give that a try. My daughter has a MAC and she's coming home this weekend. I'll try it on her machine and see what happens. Thanks.

    I was not able to solve the problem. I ended up taking the iPad down to the Apple Store and they looked it over and said it was not fixable and offered a refurbished iPad for $299. I did not take them up on the offer.

    I had the same problem with my Ipad. Plug it in to itunes and it wouldnt see it. Just see the ipad. Then it would make a noise and disconnect. As far as everything else it would be listed as N/A (In itunes) Tried everything. Changing cords, Computers, Updating, another cord, even told my ipad I would take it out for ice cream. Anyways, The charging port was bad. (Daughter Board) Replaced myself at $49.99 at badda bing. Back in action.

    I even tried to restore it to factory. It would take 45 minuntes then throw the 1602 error. The new port did the trick. No error either.

    That is great information. I even found a video online that shows, in very good detail, how to replace the charging port.

    My question now is, is it worth spending the money to replace that port on a 1st generation iPad? Can that iPad take the newer iOS 6 or is that iPad too obsolete? Any thoughts?
