    I have the GoFlex Satellite, and as a place to hold lots of videos and music to play on the iPad without hogging the iPad's memory (or lack of it) it is great. Still has some design problems with how it organizes video files that make finding, for instance, the episode of a TV series you want, but when it sends the episode to your iPad for viewing, it looks just great. Of course, I got mine for free from the Amazon Vine Program. For $199 retail, I wouldn't buy it. For $79, I would.

    Has anyone used a western digital drive that offers wireless? Best Buy has a new display of (I think) my book drives that says that access would be available over the internet.

    I am really looking forward to hearing how you find it, what you can do with it, especially if you can backup your iPad, how useful and reliable it is for you.

    Please post your comments on it after you're given it a try.
    I wrote to Seagate Support to ask which of their mobile hard drives would be best to backup the iPad and they made the suggestion. I'm waiting for mine to arrive and after it's set up, I'll run a backup and post what it does.

    Of course, the real test wiould be a complete crash followed by a restore and I'm not too anxious to test that out!

    I'm in a real mess!!!

    I backed up iTunes to my external hard drive. When I opened my iPad it redownloaded all of my apps.

    However it still will not sync, and iTunes tells me to 'restore'. I'm concerned that if I do that I lose all of my purchases, and I don't know how to get them back from the external copy of iTunes.

    Help please!
