When you have many videos on iPad/iPhone, you may want to transfer your videos from iDevices to flash drive and then delete them on iPad/iPhone to free up space.

However, our computer storage may be occupied with other files and there is no enough space to store videos from iPhone/iPad. There is no doubt that we can choose to transfer videos from iPhone/iPad to flash drive instead of computer sometimes.
