    External storage possibilities for ipad2

    Ok, well my iPad doesn't have enough internal storage to do what i need it to do....I also can't use iCloud for the simple fact that I will not have a Internet connection when I what to watch my movies, play games, music, etc.... So, I'm not sure what to do. I went to best buy and they told me about the 500 gig external hard drive for 200 bucks that runs off of wifi, which doesn't help my situation since, like I said, I wont have Internet connectivity....if anyone out there can help me out with this I would appreciate it greatly!

    Thanks for your time

    Really? You have not really given anyone a chance to respond to your question-less than an hour. Be patient as somebody will help you, or as what KayKay stated-search the forum. You will most likely find good information that you need in your time crunch.

    Good luck.

    One thing you might try until you get a new iPad with more storage, is to uncheck some apps, movies, movies, pics, games, etc. when you sync. The items will remain in your itunes account, you won't lose them. By not including them in the sync, you'll free up space on the ipad. You can add some of them back individually when you need them. It's a pain, but the only way to free up space if you only got the 16GB ipad.

    Check with Best Buy again. My eye-fi card in my camera connects directly with my iPad. I think there is an external hard drive that connects by wi-fi and doesn't need the Internet.

    If you are referring to the Seagate GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage 500 GB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive, that generates it's own wifi to connect to the iPad. You don't need anthing else. It's battery powered so you can take it anywhere.

    There are more airlines with net on the flights, among them Lufthansa.
    Anyway, you will not eb allowed to have your wireless sender/receiver ON during the flight (except where in-fligh-wireless-internet is being offered) as there is fear of interference with flight control-/ navigation-/ communication equipment...

    Here is a reply. AirStash. Search Google. This cool little drive is infinitely expandable, streams media like a champ, and contains a built-in WiFi Router. It is everything you need.
