    Hello everybody

    Is there any accessory (whether by Apple or by a 3rd party vendor) to make use of the iPad3 with an external hardisk or with a pen drive? I would like to use it this way for viewing photos, listening to music & watch video tutorials from external devices.

    My iPad3 is only a 16 GB one. I now find this insufficient.

    Thanks in advance

    Photos can be transfered to the iPad from a SD card/USB as long as you have the proper adapter and the files are stored in a folder named DCIM (mimicking a camera storage). For other types of files you'll need to jailbreak your device but there is no guarantee that your pen/hard drive will be recognize by your iPad.

    My advice is to invest in a device such as iUSBport (100 bucks in Amazon) which turns any USB storage into a wireless device allowing you to access your contents over a wifi connection.
