    After updating to iTunes 9.1.1 and plugging my iPad into my Mac it did not show up in iTunes and when plugged in wall charged from the iPad box it did not charge or even say Not Charging. I have tried putting it in recovery mode, DFU mode, and using 4 different cords on 3 different computers including one with iTunes 9.1.0. When I plug my iPad in with it turned off it turns on but still not showing up in iTunes or charging.

    Lol that summed it up perfectly. Just make sure that you test the USB port with another device to ensure it's working, and that you test the USB cable with another iPhone/iPod Touch etc. (any device that has a dock connector) to make sure the cable is ok. Then, if both the USB cord and port are fine, reinstall iTunes. If you're still having a problem, restore the iPad. If you're STILL having a problem, get a replacement, because the iPad is most likely defective.

    Or, you know, the classic trick that have worked so many times: blow some wind into that dock connector port on the iPad.
