IPad is a fantastic portable device which is manufactured by Apple Company and welcomed by all over the world. It has a series of iPad 4, iPad mini, the New iPad (which is also called iPad 3), iPad 2 and iPad. With this excellent tablet PC, we can do almost evetything just like on the computer. However, as an iPad owner, have your ever been long puzzled by such following problems on the conditions of putting files onto your local hard drive from your iPad device?

  • Reinstalled your Operating System on your computer, but forgot to backup files in iTunes Media Folder. The folder has contained all the music, movies, etc. you purchased on iTunes. Luckily, all the files are still saved in your iPad, so you want to copy them to your computer. But you can’t use iTunes to sync it because thus will erase these files on your iPad instead. So what should you do now?
  • You have recorded many videos and took many photos with your iPad, as they are very valuable to you, so you wish to transfer them to your local hard drive for backup. But when you connect your iPad to computer, some times it won’t be recognized, or you can only see pictures, and the videos disappeared. You may choose to upload your videos to YuTube for backup or mial them to your mailbox, but the process is too complicated and time consuming. Then what will you do the next?
  • The reading effect is excellent on iPad as its large screen, so you always prefer to read books on it with the iBook App. As you have purchased too many books on iBook, and they have taken much storage space of your iPad, so you have to remove them to make room for new books. But you don’t want to delete any of them, so you decide to transfer them to your computer. How to do then?

These are only a few problems when you faced with transferring from iPad to computer. On most conditions, iTunes can’t help us do these works. So, you may need a third party software to help you. 4Media iPad Max Platinum will be a better choice. It can transfer all of the files in your iPad including photos, music, movies, recorded videos, ebooks, contacts, etc. to computer without limitation. And all the iPad products I have mentioned above and other iOS device are supported by it.

4Media iPad Max Platinum has launched two versions: 4Media iPad Max Platinum for Windows and 4Media iPad Max Platinum for Mac. Users can download any version according to your OS.



This time I will introduce the operate process of Windows version, Mac users also can refer to it as they are similar steps.

Step1: Run 4Media iPad Max Platinum it in your PC. Connect your iPad to computer via a USB cable, or you can use Wi-Fi but should make sure they are in the same network. Then the application will recognize your iPad automatically and show its information such as Type, Capacity, Version, Serial number on the right interface.


Step 2Click the file list from which you want to backup files to local in the left panel of program. Then all files in the selected file list will be shown in the right interface immediately. For example: if you want to transfer movies to your PC, you can click ‘Movies’ on the left interface, then all the movies in this file folder will be list on the right interface.

Step 3: Check the wanted files in the right file list, click " Copy File(s) to Computer" button at the bottom of the interface, and locate the target folder in the dialog box that appears, or you can drag the selected file to desktop or any other folder in your PC, then start exporting.
