    Impressive. If I can use it with my desktop, all the better.

    This would be an ideal replacement for my Wolverine 80GB that we use for photo storage while traveling. Perfect for photographers!

    TJK mentioned photo storage as a use. Would that be the primary use for something like this? For pro photographers?

    Guess I'm just not quite understanding the use of this. Does the iPad view this hard drive a different way than other external hard drives?

    Yes. The iPad tends to only recognize common photo file types and MP4 files - it basically assumed any storage connected to it is a camera. This device uses the CCK to fool the iPad into think it's connected to a camera by emulating sevreral 32GB SD cards. The iPad is still not dealing with a file structure.

    That's a bust - there is no way even with a jailbreak at this time?

    Hmm. I might have to pick one up. Being able to transfer/bring my movies with me would be wonderful. I like the bby drive option. As I have a 1tb storage drive that I think would work nicely :)

    I don't think the device is out yet, so who knows?

    I'm currently setting up a NAS drive, so I'll have a personal 2TB cloud. It will be slower but I won't have to carry it around and it won't be as fiddly and dealing with iOS directly...

    Not a bad idea. :) I have no experience with NAS drives, but hey, I might give it a go

    Ditto. :) It's not a pre-built NAS set-up, either, like the Buffalo drives I've seen. I already had an external 2TB USB drive and I found a gadget on Amazon that let's you plug a USB drive into your internet router and access it via the internet and/or home network. It even came with a setting to act as an iTunes server. Once I figure it out, all my iTunes files (movies, music, tv shows, photos) should be available to my iPad remotely.
