    Most computers don't have enough power to charge the iPad. It will do it but very slowly. You need to use the wall charger.

    From here :

    The fastest way to charge your iPad is with the included 10W USB Power Adapter. iPad will also charge, although more slowly, when attached to a computer with a high-power USB port (many recent Mac computers) or with an iPhone Power Adapter. When attached to a computer via a standard USB port (most PCs or older Mac computers) iPad will charge, but only when it's in sleep mode.

    For syncing, is iTunes on your computer the latest version ? There is some troubleshooting on this page.
