My Ipad2 is not activiating Itunes when I connect it to my imac.  It also won't charge.  It has been working fine. I have tried 2 different cords with the same result.  The cords WILL sync my iphone 4s.  The ipad will charge off a wall charger but I cant sync. any suggestions?


Intel Imac, Mac OS X (10.5.1)

    How are you plugging it into your iMac? the iPad doesn't like hubs anymore, it likes to be plugged directly into the box.

     

    Chances are it won't charge off the iMac. Most USB hubs don't put out enough power to fully charge an iPad, They will trickle charge when you're not using them when plugged in, but will mostly say 'not charging' unless you have a newer computer with higher powered USB ports.

    Thanks Skydiver- you hit it on the head.  Not sure why it would start doing that all of a sudden - had no problems charging on it till this week.  But this fixed it.  Thanks again and Merry Christmas!
