Apparently not. Try using the cable that actually came with the iPad. There is apparently something different about it. Now, backup and sync on my iPad fly

NOW YOU HAVE TO MARK YOUR CABLES

NICE JOB APPLE:(:(

I have used my iPhone cable to sync from day one. I have not even taken the one that came with the iPad out of the box...... Have no idea what you are talking about.....

it's the same damn cable. I've used multiple cables from my various devices they all charge it. The only thing different is the ac adapter part.

Swel - I had the same problem. My iphone cable synced very very slowly and got hung up a lot, when I used the other cable, it went fast-no problem. I even tried it again with the old cable and the same thing happened.

I must have half a dozen USB i-cables, and a Firewire version somewhere.
So far no noticeable difference between generations in compatability or speed (except the Firewire).
I agree with the assessment that you old cable is most likely damaged.

All the cables are the same, but the ac adapter is different, an iPod ac adapteer will take forever to charge the iPad, so make sure you use the charger that came with it.

Ditto. I haven't taken the one that came with my iPad out of the cute plastic wrapper. Been using one of my iPhone ones and my syncs fly....but I only have about 85 apps and 300 or so photos...no music. In the process of downloading a movie from iTunes and will probably load my 9 gigs of music on at some point this weekend which should slow things down.

I have two iphones and two iPads in my house and we constantly use different cables for charging and synching we have not had any problems.

Add me to the group that has no problem interchanging iPad to iPhone cables. I use them both depending on where I am.
