If you want to use an iPhone, iPad or iPod from Apple, you have to install the iTunes management software. The program ensures that the required drivers are installed. You can then sync songs, pictures, and videos via iTunes. So the first way to view files on iPad with computer or notebook is via iTunes.

  • Each iPad comes with a USB cable and an adapter for the power outlet. If you take the cable out of the adapter, you can use it for the PC.
  • Connect your iPad to computer with the USB cable.
  • Your computer automatically detects the iPad and installs the required driver. This may take a few seconds.
  • Now you can access your iPad like a USB stick. However, only those files on your device are visible. You can view and copy them.

Alternatively, you can also turn to other free iPad management software like EaseUS MobiMover.
