I cannot sync and in fact, any time I attach my iPad to my PC it says not charging - and iTunes never pops up. Is it possible that I have to install iTunes on m PC to make this work?
Yes you absolutely must have iTunes installed on your PC if you want to sync your iPad.
Your USB port on the computer is not supplying enough power to charge the iPad and that is normal. Use the power adapter and plug into a wall socket to charge the iPad.
