The same question is asked post after post here..."How do I transfer files to/from my iPad to my computer?". This Lifehacker article has a nice tutorial including a video... How to Transfer Files to Your iPhone or iPad (for Beginners) It isn't the be-all, end-all as there are other methods, apps, etc., but it should answer this age old question for folks getting started. If you have a great way to transfer files or can recommend a good app or two, feel free to chime in!

Hope that helps and I'll look forward to hearing from others!
