    NO TERMINAL NEEDED
    NO OTHER DEVICE NEEDED BESIDES THE HDD AND THE iPAD

    After searching for a couple of months a solution to attach a HDD through the Camera Connection Kit on the iPad. I finally found the solution this evening. After I've properly tested that i can copy/paste/delete/reboot/respiring/etc .. i decided to share this info with you guys as well.

    OK, no furthermore stories... lets get to the point

    I've used a 1TB USB 2.0 GoFlex HDD to achieve this. But this can be done with any other HDD around there.
    My guide will be though for the Seagate one.

    requirements:

    - 1x 1TB USB 2.0 GoFlex HDD
    - 1x Y (split) USB cable for powering the HDD externally as the iPad doesn't have enough power to make it spin :P
    - 1x iPad charger
    - 1x Camera Connection Kit
    - 1x iPad jailbroken
    - 1x iFile installed
    - 1x USB Toggle installed from Cydia and also a Paypal donation in order to make use of the full version
    - 1x SBSettings installed

    1) Format your HDD as FAT32 and also make the partition bootable.

    The iPad can only read HFS or FAT32 file systems. And your 1TB HDD will most def be a NTFS format.
    In order to format in the FAT32 file system this Seagate model i had to use Seagate Disk Wizard on a windows laptop.
    (more info can be found here : http://tinyurl.com/3kkbxba )
    It's VERY important that you format the HDD both FAT32 and bootable (LBA)

    2) Make sure you have SBSettings, iFile and USB Toggle installed from cydia. If you don't have them installed, my advice will be to buy them. iFile is 4$ and can be bought at 2$ if you already bought Safari Download Manager. And USB Toggle only asks for a donation, so please try and give the guy at least 2$ as pay pal's getting some money from this as well. And SBSettings is free.

    Once you have a FAT32 HDD drive now on your hands, connect it with the Y (split) USB cable to both the iPad charger and iPad Camera Connection Kit.
    Then swipe your fingers on the top screen of your device to activate SBS and hit USB Toggle. The USB Toggle should stay switched on when it works.
    And now check your new HDD on iFile..

    Maybe you use also OPlayer as your video player. If so, then you can also make your life easier by making a shortcut using iFile inside the documents of OPlayer to the USB Stick. Then you just need to plug the HDD, hit the USB Toggle and launch OPlayer to enjoy your 1/2/3TB of videos.straight from the HDD. And it's speedy as hell in this manner !!!

    k. . . . well that's about it.
    for any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    Job Done!

    i hope you enjoyed my little tutorial and that i was coherent in what i wrote above, as i wrote this after a full/**** day of work.

    You lost me at Jailbroken iPad. You really aren't connecting a hard drive to an iPad at all you are connecting to a MODIFIED iPad.

    What are you talking about? He most certainly is connecting to an iPad.
    And how would he lose you a jailbroken iPad?

    So it sounds like you have to be next to an outlet for this to work, right?

    If it's the same 1tb portable go flex, then no power cord required.

    Well yes, as the iPad doesn't have enough juice to power an external drive.
