When it comes to transferring files from computer to iPad, three things should be taken into consideration: data type, file type, and file formats, which decide the way you use to transfer.
EaseUS MobiMover is a catch-all approach that can transfer all iOS files, including contacts, messages, videos, music, and more at a pretty high speed. It supports various data formats, ranging from mkv, flv, wmv, avi, to jpg, png, and more, and perfectly works with almost all iOS devices and computers.
iTunes is an official way to sync media files like videos, music, photos, and more from computer to iPad. But it would be prolonged since iTunes often crashes and freezes.
File Explorer is a built-in file manager on Windows computer that allows you to transfer photos and videos.
Now, you can give these methods a try to see which matches your needs.
In this section, we will provide you with a catch-all approach that can help you transfer all kinds of files. That is to use EaseUS MobiMover, which is a handy program that offers functions similar to iTunes - managing and transferring data between iOS devices or between a computer and an iOS device.
In addition to that, it has many useful tools that iTunes doesn't have. For example, with its video downloader, you can download YouTube videos to iPhone/iPad with ease. With its iOS unlocker, you can unlock an iPhone/iPad without a passcode.
Here we mainly focus on its transfer tool, whose features are shown below.
Anyway, it is a great tool you can use to transfer files from PC/Mac to iPad. If you want to transfer files from the iPad to your computer, it also can help you do it with ease. Now, you can download it to have a try!
Step 1. Connect your iPad to your PC via a USB cable and tap "Trust" on your device if asked. Run EaseUS MobiMover and navigate to the "PC to Phone" mode. Move your mouse to the right pane and choose "Select Files" to continue.
Step 2. Windows File Explorer will open. Select the desired files or folders that you want to transfer from PC to your iPad and click "Open".
Step 3. The selected files will display on the right pane, with detailed file names and file sizes. If you want to add new files at this step, click "Add File". Once done, click "Transfer" to transfer files from PC to iPad via the USB cable. When the process finishes, go to open the corresponding applications on your iPad to check the synced items.
iTunes can be used to transfer photos, videos, music, podcasts, audiobooks, and more from PC to your iPad. Here are two choices: syncing files from PC to iPad or copy files from PC to your device via an app that supports iTunes file sharing. To check whether your app supports file sharing, you can go to see its documentation.
To transfer files from PC to iPad using USB with iTunes syncing:

Step 6. Go to the app you just selected to check the transferred files.
In addition to the above-introduced ways, you can also use File Explorer to transfer files to the iPad from PC. File Explorer is a built-in file manager on Windows computers that supports photos and video transfer. If you have other files to transfer, you can navigate to Part 1 to use EaseUS MobiMover.
Step 1. Connect your iPad to your PC with a USB cable.
Step 2. Tap on "Trust this computer" on your iPad and enter your password if asked.
Step 3. Head to "This PC" > [your iPad's name] > "Internal Storage" > APPLE100" > "DICM."
Step 4. Drag the photos and videos you wish to transfer to your iPad to this folder.
Step 5. Check the transferred items on the Photos app on your iPad.
The three ways above show you how to move files from a PC to your iPad with a USB connection. But there may be occasions in which you don't have a USB cable available and need to copy files wirelessly. That's when iCloud Drive will help. With this iCloud service, you will be able to share almost any type of file between your iPad and PC without a USB connection.
To get files from PC to iPad without USB:
Step 1. Enable iCloud Drive on the tablet.
Step 2. On PC, go to iCloud.com and sign in with the Apple ID you use on the iPad.
Step 3. Choose "iCloud Drive" and click the "Upload" button to upload files you want to transfer.
Step 4. On your iPad, go to the "Files" app and click "Browse" > "iCloud Drive" to check the files synced from the PC.
