    It may be the formatting on the drive. Make sure it is jus the standard formatting.

    yeh i'll go thru every folder. i did get the message "this device requires too much power to run" or something like that and i dismissed that. its only a 2gb san disk but maybe its just too much to run it?? i'll keep checking though!

    You can try, but I don't think it will help. Just make sure, when you reformat it, it erases everything on it.

    nope nothing is working. even tried a powered external hard drive and cant find it either. its the whole reason i bought ifile in the first place! oh well!

    UPDATE: sd memory cards seem to work fine. flash drives do not! even trying to import photos normally wont work. seems silly it wont support such a small flash drive!

    I tried three drives and ditto, the same [roblem. Then I grabbed my cheap old PNY Attaché 2gig and it worked. I am of the opinion the drive that works requires less voltage than my 16 and 32 G drives. Should be easy to check on the PNY web site. I'll bet they provide technical specs like voltage requirements.

    My micro SD cards all work well, though.

    Hi

    I have a iFile and it seems to read my SD card just fine; I've got the same problems as others with thumb drives.

    However, I have a different question. How do I move files from my iPad to my SD card? That is, I would like to use my SD card, and eventually a thumb drive, as backup storage. I know about Dropbox etc, but I am thinking of situations where I am offline and need a backup for files and photos I've created in the field. I am always able to back things up into the cloud thus I need to be able to use an SD card, etc. So, if I create doc in say Devonthink or Docs to Go, or have photos, and I want to back them up via iFile what do I do?

    If this is painfully obvious my apologies but I am just not able to figure it out. I have no pride about such things so feel free to explain in the most basic terms.

    Thanks!
