    I've looked around a bit, although not too much, for info regarding SDXC 1 TB card compatibility with the CCK on JB iPad 2. Does this work at all?? And if so, will a 3rd party CCK do the job? Thanks!

    ifile is also able to detect my psp as an external drive.
    Nice. Is it still working with newer versions of iOS?

Connecting a USB hard drive to the iPad is about as practical as a family of 20 buying a sports car. WIth all of the cables going everywhere, it's just such a mess and a PIA to connect up.

    THe CCK USB reader is nice, but Apple screwed that up with iOS 4.2.1+ by reducing the amount of power supplied to the USB port, so only a handful of USB thumb drives actually work now.

    Then enter the SD reader - it seems to work with any SD card I've thrown at it, no wires, very compact and it even mounts automatically! Using the "Create Link" method in iFile, you can then access the files on the SD memory card directly from any app (jailbreak app or appstore app)! Basically, you just gave your iPad unlimited storage!

    Just two cents!
    What's the status with the latest iOSes with Jailbreaks?

    I use an AirStash+ to get unlimited storage on my IOS devices.... even the unjailbroken iPad "3"...... just swap out SD cards for more storage.
    You can even copy pictures from SD card to iPad and to a new blank SD card in field! I backed up camera cards while on cruise without computer! Going to Tanzania on Safari and wanted a simple picture backup solution without electricity & internet!

    The Airstash looks like a cool idea. Are you able to copy movies and pics to and from it? or just stream the content from the Airstash? I'm fine with the 500GB HD that I use with the CCK, y cable, external battery, and iFile + USB Toggle on my Jailbroke iPad2, but for my kid's who aren't into jailbreaking the Airstash sounds like an easier solution.

    Apparently yes, you can copy in both directions. I just saw on another thread, talk of a device called CloudFTP which will allow you to connect an existing HD to the iPad wirelessly, you may want to check that out as well.

    Airstash is great for making copies of SD camera cards in the field! I plan on using my on Safari in Tanzania with a USB charger that uses AA batteries!

    You CAN use a 1 TB SDXC card in an Airstash!

    Where can you buy a 1tb Sdxc?
    There is only one Return, and it's not Of The King, it is Of The Jedi.

    Hello,

    Is it possible to play videos off an SD Card/USB stick on a jailbroken iPad 2? ie, without having to copy over the video file to the iPad?

    I have iPad 2 wifi 16gb 4.3.3 jailbreakme 3.0, the latest iFile and a 3rd party CCK. I can read files off the CCK, no problem, can copy files back and forth, but everytime I try to use iFile native video player (or the create-link method and VLC) to play a video without copying the video file into the iPad, it never works. Usually the video will hang after about 2-3 min, and more often than not, the iPad will hang and I have to soft-reset it by pressing the home and power buttons.

    I'm dying to know if anyone has successfully done this. If someone can tell me it's NOT possible then I'll stop trying...it's driving me crazy.

    Thanks!!!
