I've been trying to charge my iPad from laptop since I purchased my iPad months ago. I own both a Mac Book Pro and a Windows PC. Neither of them will charge the iPad. It seems the only way to charge it si to plug the iPad into an AC adpater. For me this greatly dimishes the portablility.
wtf? This is especially true with the new iPad being a power hog. My friend has a 15" Mac laptop & I have an MSI GX740-235US. When my iPad is plugged in to my laptop, it says Not Charging but if there's nothing running in the background and I leave it asleep it charges, whereas his Mac charges whether or not I use it. Just not at a very fast speed.
I'm brand new here and I haven't got my iPad yet, its meant to be arriving on Tuesday but basically what I wanted to find out about was do you have to have a Mac to begin using the iPad, or can I just do it via the iTunes on my Windows laptop?
So basically is it possible to have an iPad and set it up and charge it all through my Windows laptop?
my ipad wont charged when connected to my laptop. Anyone know how to fix that. Also, just noticed this now i have it connected and its got no battery. It will shut off like it died (while connected to the laptop) and then after a few minuted it will turn on. with the battery icon saying "not charging"
My ipad does not charge either when i connect it to my laptop or when i connect it to a power outlet. I charge my ipod using the same cable too, so it aught to be working. i have seen here that ipad does not charge well when connected to laptops. But i cannot understand why it wont charge when connected to the power outlet. should i use something else with my power adapter to convert the electricity.
This is a FYI of my personal problem.I have an Ipad, a morning decided to charge it with a "OEM" china 6 ft cable and wont reach the charge after 8%,
I went crazy.... start to troubleshoot and found out that thre china 6ft cable, maybe don't have the same pins, same cable specifications causing a weak current, I tried with a original cable short version and wala! is getting warm and charging as normal.
I have an iPad Wifi running OS 3.2.2, and a Acer laptop running Windows Vista. I have owned both from new. My problem is that when I connect the iPad to the laptop, it has stopped showing up in My Computer (in the last few days) However it DOES show up in iTunes, and I can still transfer music and apps, sync and backup etc as normal. In addition, when I connect the iPad, the computer gives its normal 'bong' sound to indicate that a device has been connected to a USB port, and the iPhone charges normally. So it IS connecting to the laptop, just not showing in My Computer. I've rebooted the laptop and restored the iPad umpteen times but the problem is the same every time. This problem does not seem to affect my iPhone 4, it still shows up in My Computer and can be accessed by Windows.
I have nearly 300 books and documents, all in PDF format, on my iPad. Getting these documents to my iPad was quite a chore: they wouldn't fit on my hard drive, so I had them on an external USB drive, which kept overheating as I transferred nearly 14GB of data. I went through several hours of work organizing them in iTunes (because iTunes wouldn't maintain my directory structure, as I had previously had them organized into folders by category) and getting them to show up in any sort of decent format in iBooks.
Unfortunately, iBooks doesn't do annotations, so I just purchased iAnnotate, which looks like a great program, though I haven't had a chance to really use it yet. iAnnotate cannot simply read the iBooks library (wouldn't THAT be nice!!), so it would appear that I have to actually download the entire library FROM my iPad TO my computer and then use the Aji File Reader to transfer them BACK to the iPad for use in iAnnotate.
I cleared out enough space on my hard drive so that I can fit the entire library on my hard drive, but now for the life of me I can't figure out how to get the files to copy from my iPad to my laptop. There doesn't seem to be any way of doing a iPad --> MacBook library dump for books.
I really don't want to go back through the library that I still have stored on a USB drive and go through all that work again. Furthermore, I've added numerous documents since that original transfer, and figuring out which ones I added first and which ones I added later sounds like an absurd hassle.
Is there any way to transfer all these books OFF of my iPad and ONTO my MacBook?

does anyone know how I take my photos from my Dell laptop to my iPad . I have looked at going through iTunes but I can't see anything to do with photos. Can someone tell me in simple terms how I do this.
I have just bought new iPad last week and have connected it to my laptop which has windows 7 OS.Everything looks fine but I am unable to see it in my iTunes.However it shows up in my computer and it shows "Internal Storage DCF" sometimes.What does it mean and what should i do to resolve this issue? I don't think that the driver is creating problem because I am able to view pictures of iPad in my computer.
I have a wireless network. After initially connecting ipad to one of my laptops, ipad works fine, but I can no longer get a webpage to display on the laptop. It is connected to the wireless network, but for this laptop only, I can't get to the internet.
My two others work fine. It looks like the router is not getting to my ISP server, but again it is only happening on the laptop I connected the ipad to. I've tried everything I can think of. HELP!
How can I transfer images from photo to my laptop or to an sD card or anything? Emailing them one at a time is horrendous but I haven't found any other way. Syncing doesn't seem to save the jpegs to my laptop.
i'm from germany and we bought 6 ipads last weeks. one of them is making trouble while charging: my pad ahhh while it's connected to the 10 w power adapter using it is impossible because the touch screen don't react on my touches and makes what it wants to.
New iPad owner here. I was wondering if it's normal for the iPad to only charge from the wall charger and not via USB. It syncs up fine but I get the "Not Charging" message as long as its connected to my computer via USB.
Information: iPad iOS 4 also have a Custom built PC runningWin 7 32 Bit Pro
My question is that I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this, my iPad will not charge while plugged in via USB port on my PC. Anything else I plug in charges fine. Any help will be appreciated!!!
I got my iPad a couple of days ago. When I connect it to the USB port on my PC it will sync with iTunes and do everything it's meant to. However at the top of the iPad it will say "Not Charging" next to the battery icon. It will charge when connected to the mains outlet but not via PC. The USB ports on my PC are 2.0. (MY iPhone charges fine when connected to these ports also).
Information: Windows Vista iPhone 3Gs (16GB), iPad (16GB)
im trying to charge the ipad but when i plug it in the outlet, it either says not charging, or nothing at all. a couple of days ago it was working fine, but now its not! i even tried plugging it in my computer and that doesnt work either.
When will the iPad become better than current average laptop models? By this I mean powerful enough to run full programs and software which could completely replace my current laptop? My laptop has replaced my desktop. Now, it's just a matter of time when a tablet computer will be good enough to perform all the tasks of my laptop.
I think it's the meter and software, not hardware, but curious if it's a unique issue.I've let it run all the way to zero before to try and reset it not long ago when I had this same issue after a charge and it then said "96%" after all night.Note:this is a full night on the 10w charger, not USB.
5. Can't charge iPad over a USB port First I tried it on my USB hub, then on the powered USB port on my MacBook Pro, but nope...no juice´┐Żnot even when the iPad's syncing with iTunes. Looks like the only way to charge the iPad, apparently, is using the included AC wall adapter. Good thing the iPad's battery is rated for 10-plus hours.Is this true? I just read it over on Yahoo!
When I connect my iPad with my desktop /laptop with the USB cable, the screen show Not Charging. But if I connect the cable with the power adaptor, it start charging. Is this normal or problem with the cable?
I ordered some 6' sync cables. They seem to work fine for syncing and for charging my iPhones. I have noticed with my iPad, they charge very slowly. Also, if I'm using my iPad they really don't charge at all. My percentage actually went down while plugged in and I was using my iPad. When I use the 3' Apple Cables, I don't have any issues. It charges while using and charges faster. These scenarios are while on the 10w charger in a wall plug (not a USB). Has anyone else noticed this or observed this?
