    What have I done wrong ?

    I've got the camera connection kit, well got 2 now

    I've tried my external harddrive, 2 flash drives and my astro headset mix amp, all show light/flash

    I have sb settings and USB toggle ( I donated )

    I've reinstalled my jailbreak using evasion

    Also reinstalled ifile


    I just can't get the USB to show when connected been trying for 2 days now,

    Guess I need to wait for 6.1.3 jailbreak so I can restore the device

    It's not you, the jail break, the iOS or iFile. Apple changed the power requirements (output or input) for the dock (30-pin or lightening) connector a couple of years ago. This made it so that a vast majority of USB sticks will not work with the iPad and the CCK. I understand that powered external drives may work - but not an ordinary run-of-the-mill USB stick.

    So, a lot of people have switched over and have had success with using SD/SDHC cards. I can attest that a 16GB SDHC card is recognized fine by my iPad. Oh, and I have an SD card adapter that turns the connection into a USB one and that works fine also.

    Personally, I'd give up on trying to use a USB stick. Maybe try an SD card?
