    I've been using the iPad since almost 6 months and have never experienced any connection problems until recently.
    The iPad wouldn't charge when connected to PC, but it would at least connect and sync.

    Recently, since 3 days I started facing this problem. The computer doesn't show up anything when I connect my iPad, nor does the iPad even blink when the cable is plugged in. It doesn't even show the "Not Charging" sign. iTunes used to start up automatically but now it doesn't. Even Vista doesn't seem to recognize it anywhere because I don't find the iPad listed in the USB devices
    Strangely I don't face the same problem with my iPhone 3G.

    I've updated it to the latest iOS 4.3 and I'm also using the latest iTunes 10.2.2.14 and the latest USB drivers.
    I'm using Windows Vista on Dell Desktop with Intel core 2 duo.

    Before you suggest, I want to let you know I've tried out the following
    1) restarted iPad
    2) restarted PC
    3) erased and reinstalled all apple software (iTunes, QuickTime, bonjour etc)
    4) updated USB drivers and also ran a virus check.
    5) stopped and restarted the Apple Device service.

    I haven't changed the cable and checked and I don't think there would be a problem with the cable because the iPad and iPhone charge perfectly when connected through that cable.
    as I've already mentioned, I don't have the problem with my iPhone.

    Is anybody here faced/facing the same problem?
    I'd be really thankful if you have a solution.

    PS: I've installed ASIO4all drivers and Soundmax audio drivers. Could they be causing this problem?

    Regards,
    Raghu

    It sounds as if you have worked your way through most things. I would not dismiss the possiblity of a small bent or broken pin or pins on the cable. It may still charge, but not connect. I would get another one and try it.... Borrow if you can :)

    Ok you have pretty much ruled out the computer . . .. .

    Now take your Ipad to a apple store or a best buy and see if one of their computer will detect your Ipad. Try that with your cable and try it with one of their cables.

    I didn't see you say you'd tried a different USB port. This often solves it. Also, you are not using a hub, right? Try swapping the cable into a different port.

    Since we have heard nothing from this chap for a while, maybe he is getting a new iPad Or PC?

    Once in a blue moon that happens to me and I resolve it by

    removing my cable from a USB hub and connect it directly to the computer's USB port. One failure necessitated replacing the Apple cable, not a problem as I have 4 or 5 around the house.

    Ok.. I haven't disappeared. :)

    I was just waiting to borrow my friend's cable. I have only one.

    And yes, I am not connecting it to any hub. I connect it directly to the USB port of the computer. Tried every port.

    Will check with a different cable tomorrow and get back to you guys. Thank you so much. :)

    I have a tough time getting my windows xp to recognize my iPad. When I first bought the iPad I actually had to plug it into m wife's Mac book just to jump start it. Then I plugged it into my IBM laptop without an issue. Since then... No joy.

    And you've tried ALL the USB ports on your computer, not just the same one?

    I think the only thing left is to make sure USB ports are working on the PC. If they are, then back it goes I'm afraid.

    Yes. The USB port is working just fine. My nokia 5800 connects without a problem and so does my Seagate Hard drive.

    So now one here having the same specs of mine faced the same problem ??

    It's not a common one no. I think your only course of action is to take it back. They will give you a new one. I'm guessing some of the pins in the socket on the iPad have become disconnected.... Could be bad soldering. Let us know when you have your new one :)

    Yes. But my worry is that I might lose the VLC player app. Fantastic one, but it has been removed from the appstore now. So if it gets deleted, there's no way to get it back. Anyways, thank you. :)
