Hi all


I have a load of movies I've shot and editted in imovie on my new ipad mini. Now, the task of getting them onto my computer! When I plug the ipad into the laptop I get the option of "set up as new ipad" or restore from back up as I haven't plugged it into this lap top before.


Things is, I am absolutely terrified it will delete my movies if I choose the "set up as new ipad" option - many days of work! But uploading to youtube is sooooo slow.


Anyone got a conclusive answer to this one? Have checked a lot of forums and am getting contradictory answers... 


Massively appreciated.
