    Hey guys new to the iPad world.... I always thought I had enough in my laptop and iPhone but I knew that wouldn't last long......

    I've got an original ipad that's jailbroken and running os 3.2.2.... Ive got ifile on it and my biggest question is what the best way for me to expand my memory for traveling... I've got a good 80gig of movies I want to take with me and my only external hard drive isn't portable.

    My camera kit is on the way and I have a 16gb Card coming also...

    So here's my question...... Ive got an old 5th gen iPod classic 80gb I can transfer the majority of my videos to.... Is there any way possible for my iPad to read the video files on it? Would I need a powered USB port? Any ideas here?

    Thank you!!!!

    Yep, that's a great idea. It should work. You are jail broken and have ifiles. Transfer ur movies to the iPod. Then hook up to iPad using USB CCK. Then open up ifiles. It should pop up as a flash drive. Then u can see every single file or vid that's on the iPod. Good thinkn...now I wish I would've kept my iPod, could've used it in the same matter. Let us know how it went as it "should" work ;-)

    The only think I'm worried about is the powering USB issue ..... I'll keep everyone posted!

    Fantastic!

    Here's a link. HyperDrive

    I wonder why those drives are on preorder only? Apple restrictions?

    Shoot, $99 for the case that will support any 2.5" SATA drive. I'd get that, as I have some 2.5" SATA drives sitting around. Spendy but cheaper than the other models of HDDs they have. HOWEVER, I kinda like the case that has the SD and CF slots built into it.

    I like the ones with the screen and cards too! They'll be handy to preview pictures. Won't be long before I order one. Hope they have delivery to Canada without complications!

    Okay everyone I am sooo stoked so I'm not sure what else works I only have a 5th gen iPod and an iPhone 3GS....

    iPod works perfectly...... I opened it via my computer on windows and creates a new file (movies) transferred over a m4v movie... Plugged in my iPod to my iPad via USB/ camera connection kit..... It shows the devise isn't supported but we all know about that..... Opened ifile and it already had it opened (recogonizes it as a flash drive) open it click on the movie file and there it is!!!!!!!!!

    iPhone didn't work the same :-( ...... I'm excited for this and I'm sure many of you will be too.... Man this is sweet!!
