My mother bought an iPad2 about a month ago and downloaded all her music from her computer to the iPad2 with my help. Recently, her computer went nuts and she had to completely wipe it clean so she lost all of her iTunes music files. She asked me if there was a way that she could take the music from the iPad2 and download it back onto the computer. I have been told that this is impossible to do. Does anyone know if you can do this and if you can, could you give me detailed instructions on how to do so?
