I meant cheap in comparison to forking out the extra dough apple want for a 64gb version not cheap in comparison to whatever 3rd party product it is you wish you bleat on about.

Sweet. Still waiting for the iPad to be released in new Zealand so i can buy the connection kit.

Ipad 4 32GB WiFi only
What about VLC?
As I wait for my iPad to arrive and for me to jailbreak it, I wonder if I will be able to use VLC to play most any video format as I can now on my iPhone.

It did not popup.
So I ran iFile and God Allmighty, right there under the little 'Disk" icon was a 'flash Drive" icon.
Worked like a champ and Bob is pleased. Thanks to you.
I did not need to navigate to /var/mnt/mount1; the little Flash Drive disk simply appeared.
It is not over...
I removed the CC kit connector designed for the SD Card and adapter and loaded the same cheap Flash Drive with a few more assorted files. Took a deep breath thinking, no, it ain't a gonna work, and inserted my USB drive into the other connector. I expected an error, none arrived on my screen.
I was made aware that there is a voltage issue that prevents the CC Kit/iPad connector port from working and Flash Drives won't work because of this voltage issue.
Clicked on iFile and By God... my iPad accessed my standard USB flash Drive, plugged into the standard Camera Connection Kit, and no Apple warnings of any kind.
Just plug --SD card or Flash Drive-- and play. I tried the files and all opened like they should of.
Gosh, thanks a whole bunch. You absolutely solved (or clued me into a solution) something I have tried and failed and failed and tried, and have pestered iPad forums endlessly in the hopes of a solution.
I'll likely post this elsewhere because it just simplified my life. No More iTunes sync, just straight-forward and simple.
My only reason for jailbreaking was to get ifiles. In comes in handy soooo much. My motto is forget Itunes, with ifiles, i dont need to be chained up to a reg. Pc with itunes to sync files. I can transfer or download movies straight into ifiles and watch them, without needing itunes. I love how ifiles makes life w/ipad soooo easy.

I wonder if anyone has been able to transfer files FROM their iPad to an SD card/USB drive? That is, if I create a text file and want to back it up can I do so using a jailbroken iPad and iFile? I know about Dropbox etc. I am thinking of situations where I have no wireless and I simply want a way to back up data as I would on my laptop.
With iFile, you can copy/paste any document, so I am assuming that copying to an USB drive will work as well
Yep, it should wrk. Ipad has to be jailbroke n u have ifiles to do it though. Ifiles is my fav. N most useful app by far!
