    That is a 30 pin to lightning adaptor, it has nothing to do with flash drives, it's for converting old 30 pin accessories so that they work with iDevices that have the lightning connector.

    Apple has a camera kit that will allow you to add sd cards and usb cameras to your ipad.

    It's not for USB hard drives though

    Hi Shibbu - your posts are not only confusing but also do not explain what your intentions are concerning attaching a 'flash drive' to your iPad - please explain clearly so that others can provide some specific advice. First, a standard USB flash drive for transfer of files cannot be attached to a stock iPad (meaning one that is not jailbroken); second, the CCK (Camera Connection Kit) which has been linked in one post works w/ digital cameras - there are 2 options, i.e. SD card adapter or a USB adapter for the camera (this will not work w/ a standard USB flash drive). Now there are a number of 'wireless' options to transfer your files to & from the iPad, BUT w/o knowing your needs, advice is hard to give. So, to re-emphasize, you must better describe what you want to do - Dave :)

    Hi again ShibbuSharma - I looked at the video and the purpose is specific to putting images on a USB flash drive to upload to the iPad - NOW, you still have not explained your needs, i.e. do you just want to upload pics or do you want to also add non-image files? The latter will just not work - this topic related to image uploads via the CCK (Camera Connection Kit) using either a SD card or USB drive is an oft discussed topic on this forum - I've contributed to many of these threads - one HERE dating back two years (many others after that time) - for uploading pics, the iPad recognizes a DCIM folder on a digital camera's SD card (now you might be able to 'trick' the device using an USB flash drive w/ a DCIM folder as described in the video) - the individual images must be labelled in a similar fashion to those taken by the camera - a search of the forum will likely bring up many more hits on this topic.

    Bottom line - if you are only interested in getting images on your iPad using an USB flash drive, then you will been a CCK and will also have to put the image files onto the drive w/i the requirements in the first paragraph; it is easier to use a camera's SD card for these purposes. AGAIN, if you are trying to 'format' an USB flash drive to do other that transfer images, then NOT a possibility - see the other suggestions. Good luck and if you indeed find a way to transfer non-image files via a connection to the iPad's dock station, then please let us know! :) Dave

    You are correct - you cannot use the connection kit to transfer /watch movies on the iPad - if you are on a stock iPad. If you have jail broken your iPad, yes, you can. But, not on a stock one (you can only use it to view/transfer pictures (as shown in your last linked video).

    Hello Shibbu, i have an iPad 2 RevA, if your iPad is jailbroken, you are able to connect Some Low Power consuming USB flash drives to the iPad with the camera connection kit, you need iFile , Cxmb.
    With those two jailbreaking apps, you can play nearly any video format Directly from the flash drive ,i used to do that when i was on iOS 6.1.2 , watching The Walking Dead Seasons without even consuming any Space from the iPad.
    And no, it's not that power consuming at all :)
    In my case with my iPad 2 RevA, i used 2 USB flash drives (Sandisk 8gb,16gb). , sandisk seem to work very good with me.
    I also go one 8gb Kingston drive to work.
    Hope this helped & have fun :)

    You won't find the tweak mentioned (iFile) in the AppStore. It can only be downloaded from Cydia (which is the jail breaker's "AppStore"). If you are jailbroken, just do a search in Cydia for the tweak (it'll be the only one).

    If you are not jail broken, you cannot download or use iFile.

    I just bought a Kingston Mobilelite for the same use as you are looking for. It has it's own wifi that connects to the iPad and you can use USB drives or sd cards. I have a 1.5 tb drive connected to it and watch movies or copy movies over.

    Hi Rollerd - so far the thread has concentrated on physically connected devices (such as a USB drive) to the iPad which will not resolve the issue asked by the OP, i.e. viewing movies from a drive hooked to the CCK; BUT, you now bring up 'wireless' options via Wi-Fi - these 'newer' offerings are emerging permitting streaming and/or DL of data including movies to the iPad. I was just reviewing the Kingston Mobilelite on Amazon - might consider a purchase? :)

    In addition, the Apotop Wi-Reader has been on my wish list for a while (there are several threads on this interesting device in the forum) - SO, if you want to consider how to get around the direct connect problem to the iPad, then think 'wireless' (including the Cloud) - hopefully others will 'chime in' w/ their more recent experience using these Wi-Fi products. Dave
