Here is what iTunes saves in a backup:
But be careful: Camera Roll means those photos and videos that were taken using the iPad's camera. You say you cannot get back your "media files". Were those created using the iPad's camera, or did they come from somewhere else?
If they came from somewhere else, they are not saved in the iTunes backup.
