    Why don't you back up the pictures first before attempting to transfer them to your MacBook Pro? Do you have a camera connection kit for your iPad - assuming it's an iPad 2? Read this LINK to learn how to transfer photos with the camera connection kit.

    He says he has the first iPad so I don't know if that negates the use of the camera connection kit. What I always do with my first gen iPad is connect via the USB cable and open the Image Capture Application installed with OS X and import the photos that way.

    The kit won't work with the original iPad. See if you can use the suggestion by member milessthomas instead.

    I have a gen 1 iPad. The camera coonection kit works fine. Used it many times.

    But I agree with some of the other posts. Syncing with iTunes should be fine but for piece of mind use the OSX Image Capture app to copy the pictures to a folder first.

    Then update/sync your iPad in the knowledge your pics are safe.
    External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

    Thanks for confirming that. I wasn't sure it would work with the original iPad.
