Mounting hard drive
I've successfully JB my 3.2.2 IPAD. downloaded iSSH, iFile, openSSH and nano editor. I created /Volumes/EXT and got it liked successfully to Goodreader. I got into iSSH successfully SSH firstname.lastname@example.org my IPAD I.P. address.
If I insert a flash card I can see it, copy it and download images to a clean CF/SD card.
The problem when fiollowing Maxwell's instructions to the letter when I try and mount an external 500 gb msdos formatted drive it says it is busy. I tried this with a NFS drive as well and nothing. I've check other threads and in two different members mentioned being able to mount their hard drives successfully but have not responded to requests for instructions. Would someone lend a hand?

I have a standard 200GB 2.5 inch laptop hard drive I put into a case and I use the USB cord with the mini USB and regular USB on the same end... I use the wall adapter that came with my iPad to power the HD... Works great thru iFile...
iPad 2 WiFi 16GB 4.3.3 JBme 3.0
iPhone 3GS 32GB 4.3.3 redsn0w
Thanks for your response but telling me it works without any explanation of how you've done it or not asking me any questions about my steps is like stopping along the road and telling a stranded motorist your car works fine and then driving off.

When you read Maxwell's blog he mentions getting your I.P. Address to enter in the iSSH app as "ssh email@example.com" (my IP address) but in another web site paraphrasing his blog the author says use 127.0.0.1 so I'm confused. In iSSH when you create a configuration which do you use? The actual IP address or 127.0.0.1?
Is there some particular order when connecting the external hard drive? I'm using an IPHone USB wall wart connected to the Y USB cable and connecting the power first and then the master plug into the Apple IPAD adapter. Once last night I actually got the hard drive connected but could not reproduce it. I must have read Maxwell's instructions ten times but I am at a loss.
I would greatly appreciate some help.

Following an excellent suggestion at a site referring to 127.0.0.1 I was able to get the IPAD to recognize both an SD card using the Apple Camera Connector and a CF card using a reader and the USB connector.
SD Flash Card
- Put the SD card into the Adapter and the adapter into the IPAD st since when you plug it in it will run the Photo App and spoil the iSSH session.
- Earlier I created a configuration using 127.0.0.1 for the port.
- I clicked on the iSSH icon, and selected the 18.104.22.168 configuration I made earlier.
- I Entered the password for the configuration and hit return
- I typed ssh firstname.lastname@example.org, to which it asked for a password for it.
- I then typed ls /dev and verified disk1s1 was in the file listing.
- I ran iFile and brought up the sidebar and the Flash Drive came up after about 5 seconds
- I touched it I found the flash card files under /Volumes/Ext (remember, this was part of Maxwell's original steps
Compact Flash Cards
- Same thing about plugging it in first so as not to kill the iSSH session (I rebooted the IPAD after the SD card because disk1s1 wouldn't mount "resourse busy")
- Everything is the same up to ls /dev
- For some reason you have to mount the CF in its card reader
- mount -t msdos /dev/disk1s1 /Volumes/EXT
- run iFile, got to /Volumes/EXT and the files are there
External Hard Drive
Using an identical setup as in the instructions I cannot get the IPAD to recognize /dev/disk1s1. I (we all) could use some help.
bulletbilly, you can download from ipad to your 200gb external hard drive via ifile?
I had no need to create any directories or use a terminal at all. I just plugged my drive in and opened file and if you give it a second a tab that says "flash drive" comes up in the left pane and you simply tap it and that's it.
There is only one Return, and it's not Of The King, it is Of The Jedi.
