Hi all i started this thread to c the wide possibilities u can do with a USB connector.
Any pointers on best apps for connecting an hard disk.

You'll find several other threads on the Forum concerning the use of external hard discs with the Forum and the various problems that Members encountered and their solutions, if any.
Why would apple add a usb outlet on the ipad??? Its not a computer, its a tablet. Their two completely different things. The ipad charges on a usb outlet. Why would you even want that feature ? For transfering photos? Then buy the ipad camera kit.
Calm down! For a start, you do need the the camera connection kit for this anyway, but since the iPad is such an excellent media consumption device and it only comes with a fairly small internal memory then don't you think that people might want to have access to a bigger hard drive or memory stick filled with films, photos or other files available?

I think that the answer to the lack of physical connectivity on the iPad lies with WiFi.
It is already quite easy to access files on a network drive (NAS) and portable WiFi hard drives are starting to appear, aimed largely at the tablet market.
Software to support external storage is still an issue because of the sandboxed file system in iOS. Apps such as FileBrowser, GoodReader etc are helpful and the HDD manufacturers seem to be working towards Apps that compliment their hardware offerings.
I think that many of us will be satisfied with a tablet/NAS configuration for home computing. The question for me is whether my tablet of choice in the future is iPad, Android or something else?
Will I tried some devices
Small USB less than OR equal 8 GB will work, but I am trying to find a gd app to recognize USB stick and start copying media from and into
Btw I am not jail broken so....I know lower the choices
Will I think u want it if u want something from ur friend USB, and there is no computers around, and even if there was u need to install apps on them.

The other is the seagate go flex satellite. Its a self contained, rechargeable wifi nas. It can be accessed via a web interface, a free iOS app, or a upnp/dlna client app and holds 500gigs of content.
will I tried one thing and it did work:
Changing A USB stick folder to "DCIM" and put picture in them and ur IPad will recognize them, but not video!!
wanna try the DCIM thing with video player apps.
tell what will happen
And I don't want to use wireless apps like dropbox that u need to install a server on another computer or have itunes, transfer files in airplane mode :P
(BTW can I say which apps i recommend and don't??). I read the rules
yes, as long as they are legal and don't involve piracy.
