iOS7 activated software on the iPad that looks for authorized cables. Lightning cables have chips in them that broadcast a code. If the cable has been authorized by apple, as in Apple said 'sure so and so company, you can make cables' then the cable will broadcast a code the iPad recognizes. But if the manufacturer just makes them without Apple's permission then Apple doesn't recognize that code.
It's been said that this is a response to people that have been injured and even killed by charging issues while using non-authorized cables.
Your device should continue to charge, but you will see that warning every time you plug it in. If the warning bugs you you may want to start looking for another option.

That makes sense if i had iOS7, but I havent updated my ipad to iOS7 or at all since i started using that cable so i dont understand why it would suddenly stop recognizing it .. and my ipad wont charge at all when using that cable, i wouldnt care about the warning if the cable still worked, i would just click ok and leave it.. but my problem is that it wont charge

Given your replies to the other questions in this thread I would suspect that there is something wrong with the cable.
Try using the cable on a different iOS device and see if you have the same problem.
Try using a different cable on your iPad mini and see if it charges properly.

Different cable or power brick. If you rule all that out, swapping out the cable, power brick and outlet and it still persists then it may be time to make an appointment at your local apple store and have them look at it.
