I found an answer to my question: mediaconnect and flexplayer. Both free, work together and just streamed an mpg from my nas I know isn't in a compatible apple format :-)Originally Posted by dhevans_6
I use the Goflex Satellate from Seagate to store all my videos and movies, it works very well with the Seagate App.
Anybody have any experience with the Hyperdrive iFlashDrive (https://www.hypershop.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=210)? Billed as the only thumbdrive that can move data between iOS and a PC. Only reviews of Hyperdrive products I've seen are on Amazon for their hard drives, and these reviews are scathing - no documentation, complex setup and operation, lots of apps to pay for and download, no customer support, etc. They're advertising the iFlashDrive heavily, so I thought maybe somebody out there has one??
Like others said the wireless goflex from seagate is a good choice!

You recommend this device, so I'm going to ask you this question that I have not found an answer. When I rip a DVD to watch on my laptop, all I have to do is run a media player and the program saves it to my laptop and I can watch it later. The same thing for my DVD movies that I buy from the Internet. In order for me to get it to my iPad, which I really don't want to do, can I just point my media player to rip the DVD to the Goflex drive?Originally Posted by Big samm
I tried the conversion route where I rip a DVD, convert it an iPad format and then synch it to the iPad. I want to eliminate that middle conversion step. Which seems to take as long as ripping the DVD in the first place! Due to limited space I also do not want to download it the iPad.
Thanks for your help.
As long as its an mp4 yea. Just rename the extension to m4v to make it apple friendly. I think the goflex will play mp4s straight up.
