First Photo Transfer From iPad to PC a FAIL

WOW...  What a FAIL.  I just moved for the first time to my new iPad 48 .jpg pictures from my camera memory chip.  That went fine.  Next I hooked up the transfer cable to the PC (Windows 7, 64-bit) and transferred the 48 pictures from the iPad to My Pictures on the PC.  I went through the options and elected not to remove the pictures from the iPad at the same time I transfer them.  This should have saved my butt...but read on.
A first mistake was not selecting any pictures to view after transferring them to My Pictures on the PC.  After all, I could see their thumbnails okay.  I knew I wanted to edit some and didn't want them mixed with other pictures so I moved all of the trip pictures from My Pictures to a Downloads folder to look at them later.  In a regular folder like this the thumbnails don't display.  If they had I would have stopped right in my tracks.
I then performed a second mistake and of possible important note I had not disconnected the transfer cable yet.  I don't think that should have mattered since the pictures were in a different folder now on the PC.  In the iPad I spent a few minutes figuring out how to delete all the pictures there.  That worked....  They are all deleted.  I then removed the cable--all done.
Finally I go back to the Download folder to look at the pictures and to my horror discovered none of them would open up fully.  99% of every picture was grayed out incomplete.  You could see a few lines of picture color at the very top of a frame.  I also noticed too (you can call this a third mistake) that all the pictures listed in the folder in Windows Explorer were 127 KB.  [Heart sinking FAST!]
I moved all the pictures back to My Pictures and now 1/4 of the 48 thumbnails are grayed out to this 99% and the others looked okay but when I view _any_ of them they are grayed out 99% regardless of the thumbnail and they are all sized at 127 KB.
I've got a bad feeling there aren't any miracles to pull off here but I've got to give it a try.  Obviously there's a way this should have worked right and I need to discover it exactly before I will trust the iPad holding any photos.
After some editing and arranging I was planning to copy (not move) pictures I wanted to show others back to the iPad and I haven't figured yet how to do that.  I think I have to install iTunes on the PC and use the transfer cable again?  Is it ever so possible that if I moved all these pictures back they would be restored to their originals? [ROTFL--that would be too funny.]

Recovered pictures from camera memory using Recuva.  Learned how to move photos and music around with Apple Care help.  No conclusion made as to what originally happened to photos but I won't be deleting them from camera memory or iPad if I transfer them there any time soon to avoid this problem.  I'm happy with the iPad and what it does as a convenient mobile device but at this point I don't think I'll be leaving the PC world just yet.

  • Photo transfer from PC to iPad 2

    I know how to sync photos to my iPad from my normally used PC.
    I wish to transfer photos from another PC without replacing what I already have stored on the iPad.
    Can this be done with iTunes and if so, how? If not, can it be achieved with another app?

    There are several ways that you can transfer photographs from your PC to your iPad.
    (1) You can synchronise your iPad and PC using the iTunes software on your PC and you can select which photos/albums/folders that you want to copy.
    (2) If you only have a few photos to transfer, then you can email them from your PC to your iPad
    (3) You can use a third-party app, like GoodReader (see it in the iPad App Store) and that will allow you to copy photos from your PC to your iPad either using WiFi or the USB connection cable that came with your iPad
    (4) You can use a 'cloud storage' server, such as Apple's MobileMe iDisk or DropBox to transfer photos from your PC to the cloud storage and then you can download them from the cloud storage to your iPad. If you need to know more about cloud storage have a look at the Apple iPad website and look for MobileMe.
    (5) You can use the optional camera connection kit - this will allow you to transfer photos either from an SD memory card directly to your iPad or you can plug the connection kit directly into your camera and upload photos that way.

  • How to transfer from ipad 1 to ipad 2?

    Did anybody have ipad1 and bought ipad 2, I need to transfer from ipad 1 to ipad 2, anyway to do it?
    As long has you have synced your iPad via iTunes, then when you first plug in the iPad 2, it will ask you if you want to restore your iPad 1 settings and apps to your iPad 2.
    If you want to transfer everything you can, on the same computer you used for old iPad, just restore the new iPad from the backup of your old iPad.

  • HT1386 I am unable to synch photo albums from ipad 3 to itunes on my windows pc. In addition to camera roll and ipod cache albums, i have 6 other albums made from pix derived from the camera roll. I have trawled the net for the last 8 hrs in vain!

    Dear Community members,
    I am unable to synch photo albums from iPad 3 to iTunes on my Windows 7 pc.
    In addition to Camera roll and iPod cache default albums, I have 6 other albums made from pix derived from the camera roll. Eg -  Family pix in a folder, Office pix in another, Plant pixs in another, House architecture pix in another.......all also exist in the camera roll.
    I have trawled the net for the last 8 hrs in vain!
    I have ios5 on Ipad 3 and the latest Itunes on Windows PC.
    As a precaution, I have used the windows "add pictures from...." to keep a copy in a separate folder in the windows desktop, but again it has all the pics mixed up together and not sorted as per the various albums in the ipad!
    How to replicate the albums in the windows PC???

    Sync the photos back to the iPad using iTunes. You have to place the photos into a folder from which you sync photos. All photos that you want to sync to the device must be included in the main photos folder and selected to sync each time that you sync.
    Connect the iPad to the PC and launch iTunes.
    Click on the iPad name on the left side under devices.
    Click on the Photos Tab on the right.
    Click on the Sync Photos From heading in order to select it.
    Select the photos folder that you want to sync from.
    Select all of the albums or photos within the folder that you want to sync.
    Click on Apply in the lower right corner of iTunes

  • Some movie rentals i can transfer from ipad but most not! Whats the problem? They are all SD.

    Some movie rentals i can transfer from ipad but most not! Whats the problem? They are all SD. Some are watched others not. It just seems to be a fluke sometimes that they show up in the rented movies when i sync. And bought movies I always have to manually transfer to my computer!

    How did you rent them ? From :
    If you download a rented movie on your computer: You can transfer it to a device such as your Apple TV (1st generation), iPhone, iPad, or iPod if it’s a standard-definition film (movies in HD can only be watched on your computer, iPad, iPhone 4 or later, iPod touch (4th generation or later), or Apple TV). Once you move the movie from your computer to a device, the movie will disappear from your computer's iTunes library. You can move the movie between devices as many times as you wish during the rental period, but the movie can only exist on one device at a time.
    If you download a rented movie on your iPhone 4 or later, iPad, iPod touch (4th generation or later), or Apple TV: It is not transferable to any other device or computer.

  • How do I delete photo albums from Ipad 2?

    How do I delete photo albums or photos in photo albums from IPad 2? 

    If the photos that you want to delete are in the Camera Roll, just tap on the photo that you want to delete, then tap the trash can in the upper right hand corner and select delete. If you are in the thumbnail view, tap on the curved arrow icon in the upper right corner and then tap on the photo or photos that you want to delete, then tap on delete in the upper left part of the screen.
    If the photos that you want to delete are on the iPad from a previous sync with iTunes, you have to sync to iTunes to delete them. Deselect the photos in iTunes while your iPad is connected and then sync and the photos will be removed from the device

  • My photos transfer from my pc to iphone 4 with OS5 completely black,also the artwork on the pc is black.

    My photos transfer from my pc to iphone 4 with OS5 completely black,also the artwork on the pc is black.

    There is no duplication.   This is how the iphone handles photos.
    Just as one book can be in the public library and that exact saem book can be in the fiction section, a photo is in the photo library ( with ALL other photos synced to the iphone) and that exact same photo can be accessed from the individual folder.
    If you wanted to show your family a slide show of all of your photos, then you would use the photo library.  if you wanted them to see only Christmas pics, then you would use the folder.
    There are not two pictures, simply two places from which to access the same pic.

    How to stream photo's from Ipad 2 to Apple TV 1. The Apple TV don't recognize I-pad

    You can't.
    AppleTV 1 does not support Airplay only Airtunes for audio.
    There will be no upgrade.  It's Apple's way - they want you to upgrade to newer hardware all the time.

  • Photo Transfer From PC To IPad

    Looking for recommendations for an App (or another method) that will permit me to copy or simply drag selected photos from my PC to my IPad.
    Having come from the simplicity of the PC world, I am very disappointed in the complexity and need to synchronize to do what is so simple on a PC.

    If you don't want to sync photos via iTunes to the Photos app, then there are apps such as Simple Transfer which allow you to copy photos to/from the iPad's Photos app via your wifi network (photos will go into the Camera Roll album in Photos), or there are third-party photo management apps such as Photo Manager Pro which allows you to copy photos to/from it via your wifi network and which has imporved functionality compared to Photos (Photo Manager Pro help) e.g. you can change the sort order of photos directly within the app

  • How do I transfer (copy or move) Photo Stream from iPad 2 to Windows PC

    I understand how to transfer my camera roll from iPad to PC. I want to have the photos in my Photo Stream ALSO on my PC.
    Any help greatly appreciated!

    Hi spferreira,
    Photo Stream is not something you would transfer. It lives in iCloud and is pushed to devices and computers running iCloud that is signed on to the same iCloud account, and which have Photo Stream turned on. You would need to set up iCloud on your Windows Machine:

  • Help; Using iTunes match to transfer from iPad to new PC

    Regarding iTunes match. My PC crashed and the only other place I have my library is on my iPad (shame on me). I bought iTunes match last night to upload my library from my iPad so I could get it onto my new PC, but when I went to turn Match on in my iPad, it said it will delete over my existing library and replace it with songs in the cloud.  I DO NOT WANT THIS to happen! The iPad is the place I want to transfer FROM.  Of course my purchases are there in the cloud, but Match is for sharing/transferring all music, including burned cd collections, which is the majority of what I have. I don't dare turn on Match unless I know that my music library (and burned cd collection) on the iPad will FIRST be uploaded to the cloud and THEN written over.  It says this nowhere on Apple pages.  Please please help.

    iiTunes match scans your library on your computer not your ipad. So you will need to transfer your music from your ipad to your computer. If your music has not been added to your computers library, you are likely to lose music on your ipad.
    You will need an app to do the transfer. This doc may help Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device

  • HT201269 Will my photos transfer from iphone 4 to 4s if I restore the 4s from iPhone 4 back up on iTunes?

    Will my photos that I took with iPhone 4 transfer from iphone 4 to 4s if I restore the 4s from iPhone 4 back up on iTunes?

    Do a backup of your 4, either to the cloud or your computer, depending on how you usually do this.
    If you backed up your 4 to the computer, connect the new phone to the computer at this point, if you restored it to the cloud, do NOT connect it to the computer (or you might get an old backup by mistake). Just connect it to a charger.
    When you first power up your new phone, it will ask you whether you want do configure it as a new phone or to restore it from a backup.  Select "from a backup".  The prodedure is slightly different for computer and iCloud backups, but you'll be able to figure it out.
    This will restore all your apps, settings, and camera roll.  Then you can either sync it to the computer or redownload your music and movies (depending on how you manage these things). 
    Once this is done, you can delete everything you don't want from the old phone.

  • Need help undoing photo transfer from iPhone 4s.

    Hello gang, I need some help with a photo transfer as things have gone awry!
    I had ~100 photos in my Camera Roll on my 4s.  Went to transfer these to a PC, as usual; however, I did (2) thiings differently this time:
    (a) did this directly to a USB (instead of to my hard drive first).
    (b) Instead of my normal 'copy/paste/delete' I did a 'cut/paste' in order to save a step.
    Well, lo and behold, these are now on my USB but each at 1KB size and when I go to view I get the message "Windows Photo Viewer can't open this picture because either Photo Viewer doesn't support this file format, or you don't have the latest updates to Photo Viewer."  My PC is running Windows 7, and right now I have about 100 photos that are not accessible.  I am not able to 'copy' back to the iPhone and at this point they are lost.
    I am curious if copying directly to the USB instead of to my hard drive has generated this issue, although I do not understand why.  I have plugged in the USB to other PCs and photos are still not readable, nor are the photos still present in my Camera Roll.  Please tell me these are not gone?!

    Please, try "Photo Transfer WiFi" or "Sync Photos to Storage" from the App Store. Does it solves your problem?
    I recommend you the second app. It allows you to send all your Camera Roll photos and videos to the desktop in one tap!
