    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 ;)

    if you make a folder DCIM on your sd card or on you usb stick then you can copy pics and films over to your pad. i have not put a folder onto my harddrive to try as not had the need to try.
    Whatever gets made or added to ipad or any other tech device people will expect more and more. Me im happy to have my camera seperate from the ipad. fits my pocket better. Smile at the Ipad and say cheese.:)
