I'll start with an apology here as I've seen a few posts about adding/accessing additional storage however I've found no definitive answer (poss there isn't one) before going off travelling for a few weeks
I used my iPad whilst away earlier this year and found its capacity very limiting. I soon ran out of films so have been looking into using the camera connection kit with an external hard disk or pen drive - also considered I'd be taking loads of pics which could be dumped onto a drive so as to avoid filling the iPad. I've read about the Seagate Satellite, and that's probably the best option, but feel I could get a cheap netbook for the same money (then add extra hard disks if necessary). I also found the Hyperdrive - seems a cheaper option but there doesn't seem to be much written about it here
Then I started thinking, I have loads of external hard disks (powered & portable) and also a couple of Airport Express's. Surely this should give me the same function as the Seagate drive? Current Airport software seems to have removed the Airdisk function but maybe previous software could bring that back. Has anyone tried?
I know the iPad could be jailbroken but feel this is to complicated a solution for this one problem I have. I do have an LG NAS drive and maybe should look into setting that up for access via wifi whilst abroad - would that give me the options I need? upload some films and download some pics - then delete off the iPad
If anyone has any thoughts or solutions then I'd be very grateful to read them as this is doing my head in
Thanks a lot
