No cant do amigo.
Hi Again Guys,
Have just been checking out AIR STASH and to me at least, it looks a possible option.
If I understood the Spec correctly the device takes my sdhc * other cards e.t.c. then streams to the ipad am I correct?Also I have files a lot bigger than 4GB* it says files maximum 4gb?
interested in feedback
Now, some details are coming back to me.....
Yes, the air stash can only deal with 4gb files because it requires fat32. So you can only stream files smaller than this limit.
But you can insert other types of cards into the reader and insert that into a USB port on a computer. So, in this fashion, the device is a standard thumb drive. But if you try to stream from the device with that card inside, it won't work. You will get a funny flash when you turn it on and then the device will turn itself off. This can let you use the air stash as a typical sd card reader with other formats on it, but not as a streamer. But if you pop in a card with a fat32 format then the streaming potion comes alive.
This is a bit of complexity that is hard to tout as a feature because many wont understand it, but I find this very useful and am glad they included it.
AQ_OC That is very positive news I am so pleased.So as it stands I can still opt for the 64GB model and AIR Stream and I am set to go?It needs to be as simple as possible,due to my worsening health which is affecting my limited abilities to follow instruction due to a terrible confusion,I do not write this to solicit sympathy ,only to let folk know that I do have limited abilities,which I must take into account.
So my final questions relating to the Air-Stream I will only be using the IPAD (No phone,No laptop) Just the IPAD4 does this alter anything?
Whilst I am at home or in care? i can recharge via mains USB charger? (is this correct)
I can Save Music/Docs/Photo`s e.t.c. from IPAD4 to the Cards on the AIR STREAM?
Can I just use SDHC cards or is it possible to use the MICRO SDHC cards?(I like the micro cards)
Do I still require the Apple Camera Kit?
If there is anything else you feel maybe of use to me(improving,helping,useful) ADD-ON`s e.t.c. please let me know..I am looking at a lean,mean fighting machine with not to complex application.
I have read the superb thread by Gabriel RE ClOUD FTP e.t.c. but no matter how hard I tried toi understand it`s benefits and usage I could not,but I saw how excited some members were by the use of this method.
Once Again many Thanks
Best Wishes Steve
What I have found is that some SD cards come pre-formatted with exfat, and air stash does not like that. So you need a computer to reformat the card. So this is something you will need to watch out for and have a means to deal with.
No problems with iPad 4, it is an iPad, and works like all of the iPads (which is a joy because on android every tablet has a different set of features from one to the next).
Yes, any charge that has a USB port and is powered can charge it. So you can put this in a charger in your car to keep it charged, while others can stream movies or shows from it.
Yes, you can use micro-sd cards if you have the adapter. The air stash+ is designed to hold SD cards. Several of my cards are micro-SD cards but they all come with adapters that I put them in.
I have a camera connection kit but I never use the thing. I don't see why you would need both.
Yes, you can save photos, docs, and other stuff to the air stash. Apps like GoodReader, pages, keynote, etc, can read and write files to/from the air stash.
So, this remaining issue is the format of the card when you buy it. I got a new one not long ago and it had this exfat format. I had to reformat it, so this could be a problem for you. I'm not sure at the moment why it came formatted like this...this was a 64gb card, so that may be the reason. So you have no other means to format the SDCard? I think we need to look into this a little more before you spend your money. I will see what I can find out about this...and maybe someone else can jump in with an answer for this.
Really do thank you very much indeed,for your help and patience.
I am using my Dell at present not sure how long this laptop will keep going before it gives out on me..but ok at moment.So if I can find a way to re-format some CARDS that would be great also I can ask others to help?
look forward to hearing from you,all the other answers make me very happy...
all the best Steve
My laptops never give out on me....I usually move on well before they quit working. I guess if you drop it or somehow damage it then you
have an issue. Otherwise, it is not a problem.
I think it is challenging to get along only with an iPad. I'm not sure apple has designed them to function in isolation. You might want
to finds ways to keep a traditional laptop in your environment just for those times.
