It is easy to get music onto an iPod, iPhone or iPad with the help with iTunes, but have you ever tried to transfer music from iPad to computer?

iTunes allows one to transfer purchased songs from iPad to as many as five authorized computers. Just connect your iPad to computer while iTunes is open. Then, go to File > Devices and choose Transfer Purchases from [device name]. The purchased will be copied to iTunes library on your computer. However, this only works for songs purchased through the iTunes Store and any items that you imported from audio CDs or received from other sources won't be copied from your device to the iTunes library.

It is more likely that some songs on your iPad are purchased from iTunes while some are not. In this case, FonePaw DoTrans (opens new window) can help you break away from the limitation of iTunes.
