Guys..plz help me!
I cant connect my Ipad 2 to PC, and itunes wont find it as-well!, i tried connecting to different PC's, Tried changing the USB Cable, Rebooted, Re Springed,!! :(
while its connected to Electric Socket with same USB cable, it charges..but not on PC :(
Please help me.
Hi and welcome to the Forum!

Is this the same computer you have originally synced your iPad to? Try a different USB port, also is your iTunes the latest version, should be 10.6. Try plugging in your iPad with iTunes already running and if that doesn't work, plug it in first and then start iTunes and see how you go. An iPad plugged into a PC will only do a trickle charge it is much better and certainly quicker to charge straight from a power outlet. You should only ever use the cable that came with your iPad to sync.

yea its the same computer i used to sync! i tried changing USB ports, and even trying it on other Computer..but it doesnt show up! do you think, its some hardware problem with my ipad?
and yea, my USB cable which came along with the ipad is getting heated when its connected to any source! like PC, Electric Charger....!
i tried with another USB cable. but everything goes same!

thanks for the supports and tricks..:D
Do you have any other devices connected to your wifi, which could be interfering here and have you wifi synced at all in the past? Try a reset of your iPad and see if this makes a difference. Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start.
I'm hoping someone else will chime in here with some advice, do the reset and let us now how you go.
Are you jail broken?


Yes it's jail broken ! 5.0.1
I can't even use my camera connector! It doesn't show up only! I tried every method...resetting, changing USB cable, checking with other pc's, reinstalling iTunes and apple USB device driver, !!
Every other Idevice are detected on my pc! Just this particular iPad 2.

I don't sync my iPad over wifi! Always goes with cable.

I do feel it's some trouble with USB hardware on my iPad.

If any one could sort this out I would be very thankfull!!
I have the exact same problem, and have tried the same things

Different pc
