    Hey, I have seen this problem on the forum before. I plug in my Ipad it starts to sync with apple then the next thing I know it stops syncing and shows "not charging" in the corner. I tried "resetting" my Ipad, I tried shutting down reloading itunes nothing. My next step will be to go back to the store I bought it from and see if anyone can help. What is MOST annoying is if I want Apple to help I have to "buy" a package of help. Which is stupid because I bought the product I should get 24/7 assistance like you get with new phones or other things.

    Do you get any error message when it stops syncing? If not, watch iTunes carefully and make sure it is going through the sync process. You should see iTunes announcing what is being done, in the top, center section of the window. if you are plugged into USB2.0 it could very well be syncing, as it is not a slow process.

    If you are still not sure it is syncing, try a different port. Do not use a hub.

    It is normal for The iPad to show Not Charging when plugged into USB. USB does not supply the necessary power to charge the iPad at normal rate, although it will trickle charge, or at least maintain present charge.

    Apple's charging policy is unfortunate, but nothing to do with us. We are independent, privately owned, friendly and free.

    Hope this helps. If not bring the question back and we'll work through it
