    When I connect to the PC, the usual sound is mad, but the Ipad is not shown in Windows Explorer and the 'not charging' sign shows near the battery indicator.
    Is this normal?

    Yes. Generally PCs don't have enough power to charge the iPad. You can charge it with a wall charger and some car chargers only as far as I know.

    USB2.0 does not supply enough power, but USB3.0 apparently does. Your local computer parts store could sell you a 4-port internal hub which will fit into a drive bay on the front of your computer. Another advantage with USB3.0 is that data transfer is faster.

    Have you tried a program like the ASUS ai charger?

    Someone mentioned that a few weeks ago. Apparently it increases the power going to USB2.0 ports. The poster mentioned it worked well for him.

    A few of the motherboard manufacturers produce similar utilities - I use the Gigabyte one with my Gigabyte mobo and it works fine, allowing the iPad to charge although still nowhere near as quickly as from the mains charger.

    I notice that my new iPad does receive charge when connected to my laptop, though it signals that it is not charging!
    Same happened with my iPhone when docked with 3p speakers. Maybe to do with V level, perhaps not enough for a full charge.

    The "Not Charging" text is just an indication it is not charging at full speed. It is easier than a message saying "Charging... just really, really, slowly"... :)
    When connected to a USB, your iPad will charge slowly or discharge slowly, depending on the PC and the usage of your iPad at the time.
