    Thanks for joining just to clarify one cannot connect a hard drive to an iPad unless it is jail broken There are alternatives including new wifi drives from seagate One can also use a NAS drive like western digital live which work great look for iPad connect forum which covers many options hope that helps

    Now Col, you know how I hate to contradict you, I really do but, you can indeed connect a USB Ext HD to a non jailbroken iPad, wirelessly in fact, using a Cloud FTP (now called iUSBPort), check out this thread CloudFTP, I even posted pictures to prove it but I changed the names to protect the guilty!
