    Sync via iTunes (free download, google search for it) on your PC. You can also try using freeware like iexplorer to extract the video file out.

    Videos/pics taken with your iPad can be transferred to your computer just like you would with any camera, i.e. Windows Explorer (PC) or iPhoto (Mac).  See this... http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083

    NO files larger that 500mb (which is **** near any video)  will not transfer!

     

    At: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083

     

    It incorrectly state this:

    "Windows XP cannot import video files larger than 500 MB using Camera and Scanner Wizard. You can transfer these files directly from your device by selecting them in My Computer and dragging or copying the movie files to your computer's hard drive."

     

    Problem is that NO videos are shown as I open my ipad up in "My Computer", only photographs I have taken

     

    THIS INSANE.  You put Hign Def Video camera on the IPAD and NO simple way to get the you home made videos of it?  Search this topic "transfer video from ipad to computer"  you get NO help.  the only responses are from people hocking there "computer programs that will do it"  or "apps" that transfer files. 

     

    Apple here is the reality. At this point, regarding computers, PC is King...get it?  We do not all have apple computers to go along with our ipads.  ... So incase i need to break it down for you....YOU NEED TO HAVE A EASY WAY TO REMOVE VIDEOS FROM AN IPAD TO A FREAKIN PC...

     

    I am not sure what is most amazing:

    -ipad designers not seeing this as a problem

    -the lies at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083 that discuss easy it is to simply open up "my computer" and drag an drop

    -ignorant people responding to several other people with my same simple problem with stupid response like "so you want to put a video on your ipad, you do that thru itunes" or "gosh it's been a while since i did this but its real easy, i think..."

     

    There are not even any you tube videos on the subject... Am I in Bizzaro World here????

    Using Windows Explorer, I can see and move all my pics/videos from my iPad/iPhone to my work PC with XP and my home PC with Win7.  Some videos are larger than 1GB.  The problem is likely with your computer.

    No, you are still using XP, a 10 year old OS. If you want to use HD, iOS5, hdmi and other modern technologies, get a modern OS!
