    Hello all,

    Have had this iPad for almost a year now and it does take a while to get used to the Apple way of doing things. I recently tried taking video with my iPad and it works pretty well. I found out that in order for me to send video's from it to a Windows Desktop so the recipient can view it they must have a compatible viewer which they and I included installed and it works fine.

    Now the question:

    I have taken a few video's with the iPad where they are stored and now want to file them on my Windows desktop computer, how do I move them and file them on it? Your help will be appreciated........

    Connect your iPad to the PC and go into My Computer > Select your iPad from the list of devices > enter the file down to it's base > There you will find your photos and videos.

    Or use online storage such as OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, ... to sync them to your computer and upload them there.

    Each version of Windows has its own nuances when it comes to connected devices. In XP, it may show up as a camera device, or connected drive. I've seen them present differently or not at all with various XP machines.

    As an alternative, a third party transfer app like Photo Transfer App can make the process of transferring photos and video off the iPad much easier. In the case of PCs, it creates a web browser interface you can access on your PC and select the files you want to download to your computer.

    It may make a difference, if I recall correctly, installing iTunes also installs the right device drivers.

    They are installed when you connect your iPad to the computer. Or at least it was that way on my computer. iTunes didn't install the drivers automatically.

    You did use the built in camera app to take the videos? Are they showing in the Camera Roll?
