iPad to Mac transfer

Jethack 1

Hi. I just bought a new mac osx 10.8.2 and I want to transfer music and photos from an ipad to the new mac. The ipad is synced to another mac and I am afraid of losing all music and photos if I plug the ipad into the new mac. In other words, I don't want to sync to the new mac, I just want to transfer the songs and photos from the ipad to the new mac. Is there a way to do that? Thanks.


One more, for the road!
if, as you say the iPad is already synced to another Mac, why not a Mac to Mac transfer using any one of the different transfer methods,
ie: network or say firewire cable and Target disk mode?
