Can't transfer/copy large files without crashing. I've tried it downloaded from wifi/ethernet and so on and it gets cut off around 10mb
Its TCPDump files but i tried everything to get it off the sd to my computer its around 60mb
And windows won't read the SD card

What file system is the sd card formatted in? In linux, you can sometimes do a force mount on corrupted drives, which I've done to try and recover data off an NTFS HDD that was almost dead. Not all the data was recoverable, but I managed to get the important files off of the HDD, or the majority of what what readable. I've only ever used it on NTFS systems, so not sure if there is an equivalent for say, fatXX file systems. You mount with a "-o force" and it will give an error about unclean mount and even trying to browse the file system gives errors when listing files, but might be worth a shot.

Its whatever format the Pineapple Mark V formated it to, the sd card reads in WinSCP and pineapple menu and so on. It won't detect the format in windows sadly..

And i can't transfer files over the internet or it will stop at 15%

Solved my own problem again, for reading/copying under windows.
For windows to read the pineapple's SD card it needs this program.

Yeah, didn't realize you we're trying to mount/read/see a linux ext* file system under windows(can't by default). I should of seen that ahead of time.

An alternative that might be of use as well, that isn't read only as mentioned in the link you posted above, is http://www.ext2fsd.com/?page_id=2 which I believe requires disabling driver signing for the program(Vista and later) and also either forcing to run as administrator or disabling UAC. Driver signing/allowing should only be an issue on Vista and later I believe, although they may have support for that now, not sure.

Copying over the network via WinSCP or FileZilla though(which bypasses the need for reading linux file systems natively since they handle it just fine as a file transfer client) should have worked. Wondering why that didn't work for you and times out after 10mb of copying the file(s)? I use WinSCP and FileZilla all the time to work on client sites copying to and from Windows to Linux servers without issue.
