This is a discussion on Using External Storage Devices with the iPad within the iPad Hacking forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; Ok so first I'll show you some pics of the connection kits I was talking about : This is a picture of a 5 in ...
This little buddy is pretty special.
With this you can read/write the following memory cards:
MS Duo MagicGate
It also has 3 high speed USB ports with which you can connect cameras, keyboards, hard drives, etc. and they all work at the same time.
Airstash basically streams what sd card you insert into it. And it creates a live ad-hoc for about 5 hours or endlessly if plugged in. CloudFTP does the same but instead of a sdcard insert, it has USB.
Wow. Amazing stuff. Can you demostrate with hooking a keyboard and a hard drive and working both of them?

I see,Originally Posted by yof
So it connects via wifi? Where do you get your SDXC cards? Are they at a reasonable price where you get them?
And no I can't show you that. I don't own that particular device I was just showing it to you for reference. I think you should add the additional memory cards to your list because of those devices. You should also add portable hard drives because of their potential use with a USB hub and an AC adapter. And again I would add network dives. I just think you should make the list exhaustive so people know what all their options are.
But did you notice, that you can use an SDXC card with that one kit you were interested in? I'm thinking about maybe getting one of those kits. There a little more expensive than the more simpler ones but still reasonably priced for what all they can do I feel.
Anyway, I'd like to figure out some more uses for these things and such.
What all do you use your storage devices for yof?
Yes it connects via wifi but without internet if you don't want to. It creates its' own network. I get my SDXC cards from Amazon. But I get a big discount off Lexar UHS-I 128GB one because of Amazon Prime. Saved 150$? Around there. They are pretty reasonable well that is. But it's not as fast as if I was using an SSD with a SATA-II to USB cord to a CloudFTP. But even so, Wifi right now 802.11n is capped at around 480mbs? So I guess that wouldn't hurt either. My card minimum transfer says 60mb/s though. Hopefully that's good enough, because it's the best and cheapest in the market right now on Amazon for a SDXC card that is.
I use my storage devices to watch movies, but I'm moving to wireless. Since my clumsiness and how easy the CCK would come loose, I would rather not lose storage by moving onto wireless solutions. Especially towards NAS.
Off topic but relating to external drives for storage:
I was planning to make my own NAS storage, but one with SSD. Searched on Amazon there wasn't at all any good choices. But if I could somehow use the software from the manufacturers and somehow make one, I would be very happy! Especially a chip with 802.11ac ontop of a SSD storage, that would be golden! Fastest transfer upload and download out of all the methods & being wireless and without internet too! yeah got too much free time, gotta get back to work.

That's pretty cool. How does something like that trump a network drive? Or is it basically the same kind of a thing?Originally Posted by Gabriel1
What all can you do with one of those that you couldn't with a network drive?
What are the capabilities of GoodReader in its current version?
