hi guys, I have just been given an ipad 1 and have managed to set it all up but I don't understand something about the charging...can someone explain please... I have an ipod touch which has a usb lead going into the pc which when connected allows me to sync with itunes and charge the touch at the same time The ipad came with a plug (charger !) and the usb cable. here's the issue...... I can plug the ipad into the lead that I use for the ipod touch which does connect me to the pc / itunes etc etc but doesn't seem to charge the ipad. I can use the ipad plug/lead to charge the ipad. If I connect the ipad usb cable directly into the pc it allows me to connect but instead of charging at the same time I get a message (top right on the ipad) which says 'not charging' Why won't the ipad usb cable allow me to connect to the pc AND charge the ipad at the same time (as happens with the touch) Also...it took about three hours to charge the ipad from 45% to 100% is this how long a charge normally takes. thanks in advance.
