    Because it wasn't designed to support it outright?

    Why are people still surprised by this several months after release?

    No, iPad can't do that.

    Why?

    Because you touch yourself at night.

    after this third post, I will show two pictures of which a USB thumbdrive is connected to the iPad,...... but one thing is for sure, you can transfer file from thumbdrive into iPad but not the other way around...

    It has more to do with the fact that the iPad doesn't support file sharing.

    I can connect my USB external hard drive to my iPad and watch movies or play music. Thing is, you're posting in the wrong section to find out how...try the iPad hacking section ;)
