    just a neat trick if you have a spare portable hdd at home.

    1/ take a portable hdd (500 gig) non powered.
    add a iomega iconnect (configure wireless with your network router)
    unplug from router
    attach a travel router and vola an external hdd for your ipad.
    downside is both the iconnect and the travel router need power but works 100%.

    Made a post recently about a similar device - Cirago NUS1000. The Cirago is cheaper, but the Iomega looks nicer and appars to have better set-up software, especially for setting up accessing the drives via the internet. Downside is that it doesn't seem to natively support set-up as a Media Server or iTunes Server like the Cirago.

    (torrent download is crap) but the nearest hdd for the ipad is a wired connection.
    it comes in for a 500 gig at $599.
    this setup will cost about 170 eu or $200 inc hdd.:D

    Cool. I have several port hard drives. I understand the setup...could you post an example of a "travel router". But I don't understand how or within which apps you would utilize the storage. Thx

    Hopefully Apple will include a USB port on the next iPad so these wacky workarounds can stop.

    In the interest of self-preservation, I recommend that you don't hold your breath waiting for that. :)

    Look up amazon they have travel routers,a travel router has an Ethernet connection on the back and connects to the iconnect,giving you a wireless connection from any HDD you connect,also lacie do a network HDD so no need for the iconnect also they do a wireless HDD but haven't tried this.
