when i connect my ipad to my computer via USP it said not charging how do i fix this??
Most laptops don't produce enough power to charge the ipad (I think Macs do!). you need to charge it through your wall charger only! When you connect the ipad to the computer it would say "Not charging", although it charges very very slowly!
You need USB 3.0 to charge the iPad from a laptop.
how do i know its 3.0 USB sorry im noob at this.
You would need to look in the Windows System to find out, or whatever the equivalent is on a Mac.
Unless your computer is quite new you are unlikely to have it, although its possible to buy a card with up to 4 USB3.0 ports on it. They are very easy to install on a desktop.
thanks i will think about buying the usb port anyway thank you for helping me
The iPad needs 10watts to charge it, most PC usb ports are much less than that, there was a graph I saw the other day that showed different device USB requirements and how long it took to charge things with the different devices. The basic gist is with a PC USB port you will take about 4 times longer to charge the iPad than with the supplied charger, an iPhone charger will take about twice as long to charge the iPad, and since there is so little of a charge from the PC port that is is basically maintaining the existing charge when hooked to the computer therefore you see the "Not Charging" next to the battery, however if you let the iPad screen go off and sit on the USB port is will charge.
Emmm I dont no much about this subject but once my friend said that she charge her pad via laptop by a program called aicharger . I hope this help you some how
Have a look at this link, after downloading this to your pc apparently you may be able to charge your iPad from it. Let us know if it works for you.
