    Can anyone tell me if one can purchase a memory upgrade for my iPad 2 from 16GB to 32 or 64GB?

    Only external storage is possible and even that is of limited value. For sure, it's absolutely not possible to internally upgrade the storage capacity of an iPad in the way that you suggest. The only way to do that is to sell your existing iPad and purchase one with a greater storage capacity.

    Call Steve Job and he might do the upgrade for you by himself :) :ipad-front:

    I just brought a 2tb time capsule put my movies on that in .mp4 format. I can stream the movies with the app filebrowser. Love it works a treat.

    Isn't the new Cloud going to help with some storage issues? I'm not really up to speed with what it is but thought it was some kind of storage in cyber space thing. Very, very technically minded me!

    I use Dropbox for all my photos, I have my entire photo library viewable on the ipad this way, without using any space.

    Yes iCloud will provide cloud storage but it's probably not going to be fast enough to stream movies. I'm sure other Members will have more information on this, but there's quite a lot of background information on the Apple website.

    Thanks, I had a look at the website. I guess I didn't think about movies as I don't think I'll ever really watch them on my iPad.

    Does that mean if you had a movie library in the cloud you could copy/download/save it to your iPad to watch it then release it back? I did tell you I'm not technically minded... :D

    Yes - absolutely - that's the idea - keep big items away from the iPad, safe and sound...

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not! But that's how I thought it worked anyway. I only have the 16GB so I think the Cloud is going to be useful for me. I guess I can also stop using Dropbox once the Cloud comes into being?

    Can I buy the 64 gig memory module, open my iPad, replace the 16 gig module?
    Or...
    Send my 16 gig iPad to apple to have the memory increased.

    It's flash memory and soldered to main board. Not as easy as replacing a pc hard drive

    As the post above implies, the answer is No.
