Won't Connect To Computer / Not Recognizing Charger Nor Computers

My Ipad does not recognize my computers therefore I cannot reset all contents and settings from Itunes. It does only recognize the charger after holding down the home and sleep buttons but on the right top corner I read "not charging". When I put it to sleep it charges and have 100% charge in the morning.

I've tried several times the procedure of holding down simultaneously the home and sleep buttons while connecting to the computers but zip, nada! Neither Itunes or the computers recognize Ipad. No probs what so ever with Iphone.

My question: do I dear reseting all contents and settings from the Ipad menu and expect it to connect to the computer? I'm far away from home in a country where Ipad has not yet been introduced so I'm a bit aprehensive about the procedure. But because Ipad charges when restarted I'm beginning to think it's a software issue and it MIGHT connect to Itunes after reseting everything from the Ipad's reset menu.

This issue began after updating a couple, three apps the same day I discovered the problem so it makes me wonder.

Computer Not Recognizing It
My home computer is not recognizing my iPad when I plug it in and it is not charging from the computer either.

My computer says "camera" found and asks me what i want to open it with (corel, epson, etc)

It has worked previous to this...I didn't change any settings other than choosing for it not to automatically sync.

Battery Status Was Low At 5% When Surfing The Net - No Battery Charging Sign, No "plip" When Connect Via Charger Or USB On Computer
I have a problem with my iPad 1:The battery status was low at 5% when I was surfing the net so I shut it down. Came to it the next day to charge it up and the Pad is not reacting at all. No battery charging sign, no "plip" when I connect it via the charger or USB on the computer. I have checked all the obvious stuff such as cleanliness of all the connectors, function of the the wall charger etc. I changed the USB/power cable and nothing has worked. I have also tried to reset it by simultaneously pressing the start and home buttons. The pad still isn't switching on. Before this fault the battery was excellent: held its charge really well.

Won't Connect / Not Recognizing Airport Express
I had low wireless signal on my patio. I have a Timecapsule as my base station. I purchased an Airport Express today to extend the range of my network. It's all set up and working for my MB Pro. However, on my patio the signal is still nil on the iPad. If I move the iPad next to the AirPort Express the signal strength does not change. I tried restarting the iPad and this did not help. All my firmware/software is up to date. Any suggestions?

Cannot Charge Ipad 3 Either With The Charger Or The Computer
I cannot charge my new ipad either via the 10W charger or the Powerbooks multiple USB port, I do not get a charging signal, I have tried the help on the apple pages, I have rebooted (hard reboot) bot the ipad and the computer, I don't think thats the problem though, since it doesn't even charge using the charger.

I have solved my problem by getting another cable, that seems to have done the trick "Probably a faulty wiring with the sync cable itself. I would just buy a new sync cable, they are all universal to the "iDevices" and this should fix the problem."

Ipad 2 Won't Connect To Itunes Or Charge On Macbook Or Wall Charger?
A week ago my Ipad2 hasn't been syncing with itunes. My Ipad doesn't appear under devices and I don't know why. I usually charge my ipad on my macbook, but it won't charge either. I tried charging it on a wall charger and it worked for a while I just had to reset it every time I had to charge it, but now it won't even charge on a wall charger anymore. I tried resetting it a million times and I restored it to its factory settings and everything, but it won't work. It's not the cable because I tried a bunch of different cables and its not the USB ports because they've been working just fine for everything else I've used them for. It's really getting annoying. I don't understand what the problem is. I just want my Ipad2 to sync to itunes and charge!

Not Charging Prompt - Charging With Wall Charger From Computer ?
I'm not talking about the "Not Charging" prompt. Whether I try charging with the wall charger or from my computer, it either does not charge at all, or will sometimes only stay at 55%. Since the problem has started I have gotten it to charge completely maybe once or twice. I've also tried restoring, only to get the same problem.

MacBook Long Charger Cord With Charger
Does anyone know if it's okay to use the extension cord that comes with MacBook pros on the iPad? If you're not familiar with what im talking about, if you look at the charger the plug pulls out. You can replace that with a longer cord. On the MBP it came with an extension. I'd like to use that with the iPad if it's not a problem.

How To Connect The System To My Home Computer?
I'm not a Mac genius. I'd like to defer to your opinions and suggestions. I'm looking to access my home computer from work with my iPad. Ideally, I'd like to be able to send documents that are located on my PC's hard drive to my iPad. I know I can do this PC to PC but what's the best way through the iPad?I've found an app that offers the service called VNC but I'm sure there are other ways. Can anyone suggest one over the another?

Wifi Won't Connect When Charging Or Docked To Computer Via USB
I've had my iPad since Oct, never had any trouble with the wifi until this week. I can't charge my iPad without it kicking off my wifi, as soon as I plug it in, Internet drops and as soon as I unplug the charger or USB, wifi immediately reconnects. I have reset my modem, and I also have Internet on my laptop when it kicks off the iPad, so I do not believe its a network issue. Is there any setting the controls conectivity to wifi when the iPad is charging or docked? I have also tried a soft and system reset with no avail.

IPad 2 :: When Connect To My Computer - Says ITunes Has An Updated Version 5.0.1
Have an iPad2 version 4.3.5 when I connect to my computer it says iTunes has an updated version 5.0.1. I have tried several times to get it to update and it is a lengthy process. This is the message I get each time. There was a problem downloading the software for the iPad Christina. The network connection timed put. Make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active, or try again later. Does anyone have any suggestions. I have tried a few times and keep getting this message. Also, after reading some of the other forums on this newer version should I even bother updating to the 5.0.1? Another question...... How do I get apps from my other iPad on to this one?

Free Space Not Recognizing?
Just today I have had some issues with syncing my iPad. It said error in the disk. When I checked I noticed that I have too many files on my iPad. Basically I am over the limit. Its strange because only yesterday I checked that I had a few gigs left. I went into Goodreader, deleted some of the bigger files, Switched off syncing in podcast, movies etc. The main problem are the "Other" files is taking 40GB for some strange reason. I use to have some movies in Stash software but I already deleted those today. Also Comics I deleted some main files but the "Other" category is not moving. I tried restarting and syncing but the same.What's strange is that in the color coded space indicator on the ipad, there is nothing showing for audio, and when I deselect voice memo, the audio space color appears. After syncing my "Other" files just added 2GB on top of what I already have but I didn't add any new files into the equation. The indicator bar is very inaccurate and always keep showing and hiding things. When the bar reaches max it won't let me sync. Could it be just something wrong with the indicator for iTunes 10?

I've used the assistent here on and done all of the restarting and reloading but it does not work. I have also tried plugging into my work laptop (a Dell running XP) and the iPad is immediately recognized and can sync. All of my music and apps are run off my home Mac so I need to sync there. Any tips so I don't have to wait for a Genius bar appointment?
