Hi. Took a few amazing pics on the iPad but unfortunately unable to open them on the computer. The files are there in folder ... Self created... iPod photo cache... And there is a folder within that for each pic but cannot open. The folder appears to be empty. How do I view these pics on computer please?

You are lookimg in the wrong place. The iPod Photo Catch has nothing to do with photos taken on the iPad. if you are using a Windows computer the iPad will mount as a USB drive whin you connect it. open the drive and look in the DCIM folder. all your camera roll pictures will be there. Copy or drag them to the computer.

If you are using a Mac, the Image Capture app (or iPhoto) will let you copy pictures off the iPad.
