    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Is this the same computer you have originally synced your iPad to? Try a different USB port, also is your iTunes the latest version, should be 10.6. Try plugging in your iPad with iTunes already running and if that doesn't work, plug it in first and then start iTunes and see how you go. An iPad plugged into a PC will only do a trickle charge it is much better and certainly quicker to charge straight from a power outlet. You should only ever use the cable that came with your iPad to sync.

    Do you have any other devices connected to your wifi, which could be interfering here and have you wifi synced at all in the past? Try a reset of your iPad and see if this makes a difference. Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start.
    I'm hoping someone else will chime in here with some advice, do the reset and let us now how you go.

    Yes it's jail broken ! 5.0.1
    I can't even use my camera connector! It doesn't show up only! I tried every method...resetting, changing USB cable, checking with other pc's, reinstalling iTunes and apple USB device driver, !!
    Every other Idevice are detected on my pc! Just this particular iPad 2.

    I don't sync my iPad over wifi! Always goes with cable.

    I do feel it's some trouble with USB hardware on my iPad.

    If any one could sort this out I would be very thankfull!!
    Peace.
