A few motherboard companies announced that they are upgrading their USB ports through firmware allowing the iPad to charge from them. ***URL removed because I do not have enough posts on site*** Saw on Engadget. If you do a search on engadget for: gigabyte msi the article is second on search results. I just recently built a PC using one of the supported Gigabyte motherboards (P55A-UD3) but cannot for the life of me figure out what to upgrade. All of the firmware/driver files on their website are dated January 2010 and match mine already. Just verified again that my iPad does not charge. Anybody had luck with this?
