    Getting video off of the iPad to Mac
    Does anyone know how to get videos off of an iPad? I had spent hours converting some dvds to the right format for the iPad and then my hard drive crashed and I lost everything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks!

    You can open iPhoto and import the videos there. It will create new events for them.

    doesn't seem to work. i'm not seeing any video for import in iPhoto. these were dvds that i had saved to my computer of movies we own, kids cartoons etc that i was hoping not to lose (or have to redo). on my ipad they're in the videos app.

    The video file type is why iPhoto doesn't recognize them.
    If you can convert the videos to M4VP, iPhoto will "see" them and allow you to import into iPhoto.

    Why you need a backup of your hard drive.

    iPhoto will only see the stuff that's in the Camera Roll. To get at just about anything else you're going to need an app that can browse the folder structure of the iPad. There are a few out there now. One of them is Phoneview.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
