    Is it possible with some hack? It was possible on the older iOS but now not anymore. Why Steve, oh why?

    Not as far as I am aware. Apple chose to reduce the voltage supplied to the camera connection kit when 4.2.1 was released. This upset lots of people!
    A hack may not be possible to fix this. Things like voltages supplied to hardware components are usually managed at quite a low level in the OS. You can't just make a little tweak to increase or decrease... imagine the damage you could cause!
    We live in hope that either Apple will increase the voltages a little again, or that someone somewhere will find a way to hike it up... Just don't hold your breath.

    Hope that helps.

    Are you sure? I have tried this several times, but it does not work! I read lots of reports on YouTube and internet that it won't work since the 4.2.1 update.

    A bulky external WiFi NAS is the answer.

    On holidays my wifi connection might not always be fast enough to stream....

    Why did Steve cut this function out of the iPad?

    He cut it out because for future plans he will make it available for a fee like everything else in this crazy world
