Connect your Ipad to a pc. Open up 'my computer' from the windows start menu. Under 'portable devices', you should see 'Apple iPad. Open it up. Click on 'internal storage'. Click on 'DCIM. Click on whatever folder is in there. In this folder will be your photos and videos that have been taken with the ipad. Copy over to PC. Done.

If you have itunes installed, open it up - drag your videos into it & then sync with the ipad. It will accept mp4s but not divx/xvid AFAIK

Oops, misread the question there - my apologies kiwibits. Autechre is right, jut drag and drop from your PC to itunes when you iPad is connected.
