Access to photos of ipad just by connecting cable
I was shocked to discover that even though my ipad was not even opened (no code inserted) and my photos were even put in restriction, by connecting the ipad by cable to a PC, all of a sudden a file manager window pops up, and there is complete access to photos and videos. How can this be? [Note, itunes is not loaded when this is happening. Also, I had previously synced this ipad to this PC, but had not done that now)

When plugging in it will show as an external drive... but i believe the ipad must be unlocked (either no PIN code or the PIN code entered).. do you have a PIN code to lock the iPad?
Also, when connecting to a Mac, you must allow the iPad to "trust" the Mac before it will connect, by tapping the "trust this computer" message that pops up on the iPad when connecting it.. I think this is also true on a PC, so you probably marked it as 'trusted' when you syncd it previously. So if it's "trusted", it will.. trust it..
