Hiya, I know external hard drives can be hooked up to iPads, but I haven't found one that doesn't require you to copy the files on the external hdd onto the iPad. I have a 16gb iPad 2 I received as a present (well more like my mom received it, but she has some weird motion sickness where seeing the swiping motion causes her to get extremely naughtious). So she gave it to me... Anyway.. I'd love to have a bit more space for it, by way of an external hdd, but if I have to copy the files from the hdd onto my iPad it kind of defeats the purpose. So, in a nutshell, are there any external hard drives that don't require coping the files onto your iPad?? Jail broken is not an issue either ~ Neither is formatting the external hdd. Thanks for all the help, you guys are so helpful!!
