    Hi, I have an Ipad 2 IOX 7.0.4 without jailbreak, my intention was to buy the camera adapter conection, to well with a SD Blast either from a memory stick or portable hard drive to see movies, pictures and other traditionally files.

    2 - serves any accessory camera conection, or must be the original apple.?

    Unfortunately, the camera connection kit, on a stock iPad, can only be used as Apple intended - as a connector to transfer photos and such from a camera. You cannot add movies and other files with a USB card/stick to view them on the iPad.

    This can be done with a jail broken iPad, however. But, as you don't wish that, maybe you should look into a wireless storage or streaming device such as the AirStash or Seagate devices?

    Hi Alberto... I strongly recommend that you consider a 'wireless' option such as the one bolded above - the AirStash (which I own) is small and portable, establishes its own Wi-Fi network, and can handle large capacity SD cards (i.e. many movies could be stored & streamed to your iPad) - pic below of the device; also check out the pricing & reviewer's comments on Amazon HERE; also see the this Forum THREAD- now there are other options as mentioned; one being the Apotop Wi-Reader. Good luck - Dave
