Does anyone have any clues as to why this could be happening?  I plug my USB cable into my computer and it Syncs and transfers things just fine but it's telling me it's not charging.  Now the thing is I'm running a Dell laptop with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports on it.  Now I plug my iPod into one of the USB 3.0 ports and it does everything an iDevice is supposed to do Sync, transfer, and charge.  However, as I said about my iPad it does everything but the charging.  Is it because I'm using the USB 3.0 port?  Should I try it in the USB 2.0 port and see if it charges that way?  Also, does USB 3.0 have more juice to it or is it simply just a faster transfer system?


It charges just fine via the keyboard dock and the AC adaptor so I can charge it that way just not on the computer if it truly can't be charged via the computer.



I'm running a Windows 7 environment with an iPad that does need to be upgraded to the iOS 4.3 system.  I'm using 4.2.1 until I do so.
