Is it possible to browse iPad files on MacBook via USB

Hey guys, I’m at my wits end here. I have a 17gb file I need to transfer to Dropbox. It continually fails to upload. Same thing fails when I try to upload to iCloud. I’d do it via SD adapter but that takes forever. I saw that I should be able to browse by connecting my iPad Pro 2020 to my MacBook Pro with Catalina but when I select it in finder it prompts me to set up as new or restore. I just want to browse the files so I can move it to my MacBook and then to Dropbox. Any ideas? Thanks for any help.
