I had a computer guy here last week we spent an hour trying to sync photos, and video "from" my ipad "to" my mac...no luck. I thought this was supposed to be simple, hence why I bought the pad, and so did he $80 dollars later. So what am I missing, itunes won't sync my movies from Imovie either. Its gotta be something simple?

Yes we used itunes, it does not import from I movie into itunes, nor will the photos on ipad sync to itunes on my mac. I can put photos /video from my mac into the ipad but not the other way which is what I have been trying to do.

Your iPad will appear as a device in iPhoto, just like a camera or SD card would if you were attempting to transfer photos from those sources. You can then click on the iPad icon IN IPHOTO to view its contents. You can then choose which photos you want to import (just by highlighting) and then click the Import button. It's exactly the same process you'd use with a camera or iPhone.
