I guess this same question applies to iPad 1st & 2nd Gen, but I am looking for an App or attachment that will allow me to play my videos and music files that I have stored on a External Hard Drive. Generally up until now, I have used my Mac Book Pro for work and had the HD for my "Entertainment" Files. I like to keep my entertainment separate from my work files. As the iPad is so convenient and light, I am tending to use it on my travels more than ever. At night in my down, time I like to watch a movie or TV show of my choosing in my own time. So I have found with my iPad, the lack of a USB capability is just about the only one of my gripes I have with it. I know some may say, wait until Cloud arrives, but it is out of the question to use a 3 G network or even find wi fi at some of the places I go. I tried have a Camera Attachment without success. It may be a little ambitious, but how can I save You Tube and Flash files to my MBP, to then shift to the iPad using the App AV Player HD ?(A Marvellous App BTW) Does any Geniuii out there have any clues for me please ?
