Ok so this is a bit of an odd one. My PC (windows based) does not recognize my iPad when I connect it via the USB cable. Nothing in iTunes nothing on the device and when I plug it to charge via the USB plug the battery symbol says not charging. However the iPad does charge all be it at a much slower rate then previously. I've tried multiple USB cables, multiple USB ports on my PC, three different pcs, one Mac and reinstalling iTunes with no luck. I've been to the apple store and best answer they could give me was that there is possibly a damaged pin in the iPads connector. I'm hoping someone maybe able to provide some advice as to what my problem is and how to fix it so I can synch with iTunes again. Currently have OS4.2 so I don't have ability to synch via wifi. Is there anyway I can update OS through the iPad itself (not through iTunes)? Is there anyway i can synch via Bluetooth connection? Or can I replace the "possibly" damaged connector on the iPad? Thank you for Ny help you maybe able to provide.
