    I just got my iPad 2 and transferred everything just fine from my old iPad. Last night, I received a "not charging" message. I left it on charge overnight and it went from 40% to 80% in 8 hours. Now it will not synch at all when I connect to my computer.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Rich

    Well it won't charge on a USB because there is not enough power. If you plug it into the wall you shouldn't have this problem. There is an adapter I've seen so you can charge with the USB, but it will be at a slower rate. As for the not syncing now I don know. Maybe restart your pad and see if that works.

    I agree with previous posters. Also with having the latest version of iTunes.

    Thanks - I used the wall outlet charger provided with the iPad and even tried my iPhone charger to no avail. I will try turning it off this evening and see what happens.
    Thanks again.

    I would like to add that Syncing and charging 2 different things.
    Plugged mine into a powered hub-got not charging warning but software, videos etc. Synced fine.
    There is probably no fix for this,short of changing the hardware in the iPad.
    I do not see why this would be a major problem(irritating I can see), just plug it in to the wall to charge using the included wall adapter

    hope u can get it repair soon..
    thanks....

    Thanks for all of the advice. I have tried everything short of wiping the thing and starting from scratch. I still get an irritatingly S L O W charge with any charger setup, and I've tried them all and still cannot synch Tried the hard re-start too.
    Time for a trip to the Apple store for a mulligan.

    Don't panic.. It IS in fact charging, just very slowly on a laptop or a desktop.. in spite of it saying 'Not Charging'..

    the power block for the iPad is significantly larger than that of the iPhone (like 3 times the size), as you may have noticed, so it requires a lot more juice to charge it up..

    conversely, charging the iPhone on the iPad's power block is amazingly FAST.. It's like charging on steroids, so if you're ever in a rush, use the iPads block to charge the iPhone... you'll shave some minutes for sure..

    but to cure your worries, nothing is wrong with your iPad.. though it says 'NOT CHARGING' it really IS charging, though slowly..

    Perhaps silly

    Hey,

    I had the same problem about charging and syncing. To me it seems like that the usb cable is the problem. I have changed the cable to one of my old iPhone cables, and now syncing and charging from my MacBook Pro is not a problem.

    And yes, by using the "new" cable, the iPad 2 is "slow" charging.

    Perhaps it will work for you

    Regards

    Peter

    I had the same problem with my iPad 2 and MacBook Pro (5,3). When I did an iTunes reinstall it fixed the problem. It's syncing and charging from the USB port. I'm still not sure how it started.
