    How i want to copy data from ipad.
    I have some problem because everytime i try to connect via usb, i only can see images folder (DCIM).
    There's no other folder. How can i view the other folder, is it there is a specific setting.
    Thank you.

    Sorry, but the iPad is not designed to be able to dig into its "innards." The only access, from a computer, that Apple has allowed on a stock iPad is to that DCIM folder you mentioned.

    There are apps (e.g. Goodreader, iFiles, Flick, etc.) that enable you to create a connection with a computer to exchange files - but you have to have the file in the app. It's easy enough to do that, with the "open in" function; but that's it. The iPad is app-centric and each app "owns" it's own files - there is no central repository for files.

    Hope this clarifies.
