    Hi,

    Is there any way to transfer photos and videos that ae taken and stored on an iPad or iPhone ONTO an external memory drive or SD card without having a computer? This is important to conserve space and to avoid having to carry a laptop with you.

    I understand that Apple sells a camera connection kit that has an SD card slot, but from what I know, this appears to be only for importing photos into an iPad or iPhone, and not the other way around? Or am I wrong?

    If you are JB, I think you can transfer files as well as photos thru the camera connection kit.

    See what others say.

    The filename of the video must be the same as the camera format - change it to abc12345.mp4 for example, any 8 digits plus the extension then delete from photo app when done watching to open space.
    Let us know if that helps....

    Thanks for the info. A bit disappointed about the lack of large media export though. Makes taking pics and videos and storing media on an iPhone and iPad an issue if it means I need to carry a laptop with me too just to export videos for storage.

    Transferred a 350mb video from the ipad yesterday using the Photo Transfer app. Just set your browser to the iPads address and it's treated as a browser download. Assume size isn't a problem.
