    iPad won't detect USB when plugged In

    What have I done wrong ?

    I've got the camera connection kit, well got 2 now

    I've tried my external harddrive, 2 flash drives and my astro headset mix amp, all show light/flash

    I have sb settings and USB toggle ( I donated )

    I've reinstalled my jailbreak using evasion

    Also reinstalled ifile


    I just can't get the USB to show when connected been trying for 2 days now,

    Guess I need to wait for 6.1.3 jailbreak so I can restore the device

    It's not you, the jail break, the iOS or iFile. Apple changed the power requirements (output or input) for the dock (30-pin or lightening) connector a couple of years ago. This made it so that a vast majority of USB sticks will not work with the iPad and the CCK. I understand that powered external drives may work - but not an ordinary run-of-the-mill USB stick.

    So, a lot of people have switched over and have had success with using SD/SDHC cards. I can attest that a 16GB SDHC card is recognized fine by my iPad. Oh, and I have an SD card adapter that turns the connection into a USB one and that works fine also.

    Personally, I'd give up on trying to use a USB stick. Maybe try an SD card?

    I'm unfamiliar with what type of cards that go into a DS, but I would say yes. As long as its a data card that you can store "stuff" on, it should work.

    Oh, and in case you only have the USB part of the CCK, here's the link for the USB adapter: http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Flas...d+card+adapter
