I have about 50GB of photos taken from a recent trip through Asia and I want to take them from my ipad to my PC running XP.
Here's what I've tried prior to coming here to ask whether I should just buy the app, and which one.
Using the Windows file transfer process for some reason fails. I don't know why but it gives a "communication with the server was lost". I'm doing it through a USB. I could eventually see the photos but not the DCIM folder nor could I explore, only using the XP process for getting photos. Through the forums I understand the PC should read the Ipad as a device and be able to use explorer to navigate. This approach would be fine, but I don't see the folder. I've turned off the firewall and antivirus, though the antivirus may have automatically turned on during the transfer. I'm going to check that now.
If I can get this free method to work then I see no reason not to use it. Besides, it has the advantage of not limiting the number of files for transfer. I don't want to have to select 100 photos at a time, there are over 5000 photos.
I've looked at Photo Transfer and it suffers from the 100 images and only 5 minutes of video.
Cucu something, (my computer is rebooting but the program looked popular) It's pricey at $30.
I've not seen much else for this purpose.
So, what other reason may there be for the windows file transfer process not working? If it doesn't work for me, which app, are there alternatives?
Thanks in advance
