    For some reason when I plug my ipad into my pc via USB it recognizes it but at the top right hand corner of the screen it says not charging. Any fix?

    Yeah your USB isn't powerful enough, try a more powerful USB port or you'll have to stick with wall charger.

    I'm guessing maybe you have it hooked up to a dock which wouldn't put out as much power as the actual computer's port. Also, the front ports of some desktops aren't as powerful as well.

    Anyway, you must have USB 2.0 to charge an iPod over USB. Most computers in the last decade or so have it, but anything older than that won't charge it, neither will things like PS2. Try the back of your computers USB those usually output more power

    My brand new ipad wont charge at all. I've tried charging it both over USB and using the included wall charger and cable with no success. Any suggestions?

    The iPad requires more power to charge from a USB port, which means that you need a more modern USB port. Specifically a USB 2.0 port.

    If your iPad isn't charging from the USB port, use the included wall charger.

    Ok well On kiks52's links one of the comments says that it is actually charging but only when the screen is off. But it charges very slow compared to an outlet.
