Hi folks I'm new to this ( i will post an intro later), but for now i'm hoping you might be able to help. I'm syncing my new Ipad to a faily old PC but running the latest itunes albeit slowly. I've been reading the threads regarding power issues with USB's connections. While the itunes tries to sync my pictures it goes through a process of optimising and the transfering. Meanwhile the ipad is connected via usb but showing (not charging) in the power window. I know this is not the case because it is increasing in battery again albeit slowly. After about 15 minutes sometimes longer it come up with an error saying the disc can't be found, and the ipad disappears from the list in itunes. I'm thinking it might be a power issue with the USB, and yes i have tried connecting to a different USB. Any thoughts.
