Step 2) your iphone or ipad will appear under this pc or my computer.

                                          While you connect your ipad to computer. Ipad does not appear in my computer or this pc. If you facing such problem during moving your video hd movies from ipad to computer then you first turn off passcode protection for your ipad.  Also keep your ipad screen unlock condition from starting of ipad video transfer to completion of video transfer to computer. It is better to turn off automatic screen lock of your ipad or iphone while copying movies and videos.

Step 3) find ipad icon under portable device under my computer.                 

Step 4) open ipad iphone folder and under internal storage folder all your video, english hollywood movie and your downloaded movie, vides are stored.

                              Now to transfer all your video and movies to computer question comes in mind is where ipad store all downloaded video files, location of video file on iphone or ipad and how to search all video files on ipad or iphone. Here is the tip for finding all video files on iphone or ipad.

Below I brief you how to find video file on ipad and iphone.  

                            So now under internal storage folder, Internal storage folder is the inbuilt memory of your ipad pro 32gb, ipad air,ipad mini 4 16gb. So all purchased movies, downladed video, recorded video from 12 mega pixel isight camera of ipad or iphone will be stored under internal storage memory of your ipad. Even you iphone 6s plus 64gb, iphone se store all video movies under internal storage of your iphone memory.
So open internal storage folder and search for *.* this will list all files and folder under internal storage.
 Now rearrange all file as per the size of the files.
You can do this by click on view- then click on tab arrange icon by size.
Now most of the hd movies video size are above 500mb. So select all those files and copy those files and paste on this pc or my computer folder.
Step 5) now if you want to transfer selected movies from your ipad to computer then

iphone or ipad support this video, films, movies file extensions   h264 video 1080p, .m4v, .avi, .mp4, divx, .mov, mkv, xvid,mpeg-4 video 2.5 mbps, motion jpeg m-jpeg video, .wmv.

Step 6) now search for  *.mp4,  *.m4v etc. this will list films, movies with that particular file extension. Copy those films & movies and transfer them to windows computer.
Fix problem like 1)  no new video or picture were found on this devices 2) ask for passcode everytime while try to copy films video to computer.

                                   While you are transferring films video from ipad to computer, your ipad icon appear under my computer but when you click on it, it says there is no new video or picture were found on this devices. To solve this problem remove passcode protection of your ipad, also disable automatic screen lock of your ipad or increase time for automatic screen lock so you ipad screen stay in unlocked condition until you finish video transfer to computer. Also trust the computer and allow this computer to access photo video while it is connected to ipad or 

                    Here i also like to add that during manual transfer of video from iphone to computer when you connect iphone ipad or ios device to computer, you will find iphone ipad folder under my computer. But when you open iphone folder it show blank. You won’t able to find any file folder under iphone ipad. But actually there are many photos , pictures and video movies on iphone /ipad. Many suggest that Restoring iphone / ipad or ios device will solve this problem but don’t restore it there is no problem with iphone or ipad so don’t go for iphone ipad troubleshooting. Actually such thing happens because apple ios device use apfs file system while windows operating system use ntfs or fat32 file system. Due to this windows computer not able to read iphone file folder. So it just shows blank iphone folder.


                  First try to install apple mobile device driver on your computer after that apple iphone ipad will be detected under devices and scanner under my computer. If this will not solve your problem then you need to install any good ios root file system browser on your computer. There are many free apps and software available on app store and internet. Once you have installed that software you can brose iphone / ipad file system. Just go to this folder private / var/ mobile( this is user home folder)/ media/ dcim/ on your iphone. Dcim folder store all photos, pictures and video you have taken by your iphone ipad camera. Now copy these video library or picture and paste on your computer. I created separate post about how to troubleshoot when iphone ipad won’t power on or turn on. Go through that post for iphone ipad troubleshooting.


                                when you try to copy selected films from ipad to windows pc, it prompt to enter passcode everytime in this case also disable passcode, keep ipad screen unlocked condition and trust the computer.
