    Just opened my new iPad 64gb and connect it to my PC. It is at 97% charged, but when connected to my PC... it says "Not Charging". Is this normal? Plugging it into the wall outlet, shows the battery icon and shows it is charging.

    You need a high power USB hub.

    This is normal, your pc is just not putting out enough power to charge the iPad. As ^ said, get a powered hub, or use the power adapter.

    Read the support article linked by Sneakz. A PC displaying "not charging" because of underpowered USB will still charge the iPad when the screen is sleeping. You just can't see it saying "charging" obviously. :D

    It only charges when the screen is off.
    I left mine connected to my PC at 67% charge last night while it said "Not Charging" and when I woke up this morning it was at 100%.

    Well, I got a Unibody Macbook Pro 2.4 and yes the iPad (32gb wifi) would not charge from any port using the USB cable that came with the iPad. When I use the USB CORD for my iPHONE 3G on it, it charges from EITHER PORT.

    Haven't tried it on anything else, but I do know that the USB Cable that came with it is worthless to me as I only charge from my Macbook. If ya ask me :apple:'s up to something........

    Oh yes they are definitely up to something!! :rolleyes:

    Why wouldnt you just use the included AC adapter that will charge it in half the time your MacBook will..

    just easier for me how i have everything set up to leave it plugged in overnight.....

    O i just tested the two cords on my Dell Desktop and same results, so I say its the cords.
    Something else I found out is when i close my Macbook the iPhone keeps charging, but the iPad doesn't.

    I have the same issue at work. I just find it annoying that the USB ports on my Dell monitor aren't powered enough to satisfy my iPad. (But my annoyance is with Dell, not Apple -- the monitor has its own power supply, why not send a little of that juice to the USB ports?)

    Put the iPad into sleep mode and it will charge.
