    Hi everyone,

    Brand new to this forum. Just got my iPad today. It's primarily to read comics.

    So here's the deal. I have a hard drive of comics; mostly in CBR format. I want to have them accessible anywhere I travel to, and be able to swap them in/out of my iPad as I see fit over the internet. I have the 16gb Wi-Fi model.

    What apps do I need to make my hard drive accessible online? I guess I basically want it to act as a server to my ipad.

    Additionally, once the comics are on the iPad, how would I get my comics reader to play them?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    You want your home computer to be visible to the Internet?

    Maybe dropbox would be a better solution?

    Thanks. I already have started working with Comic Zeal, as it is the best app so far for comics that I've encountered.

    The problem I've had with the app, however, is that the SyncDocs program only works if the iPad and the computer that has the hard drive are on the same wifi server.

    That won't happen when I'm traveling. So I need an "online" solution.

    I already have LogMeIn, which allows me access to my computer anywhere I'm at. What I need is access plus a way of transferring the comic files onto the iPad.

    Thanks USBill. Would dropbox allow me to transfer the files onto the iPad?

    I would recommend Good Reader as it can connect to Google Documents, but it can't open those files (yet).

    So Goodreader could transfer the files, but it couldn't read it. And then I'd be in the same situation I was in before because the files are not accessible through the comic reading program, right?

    Good Reader can read the comics. What format are your comics in. I would say the best way is to either used DropBox or if you have a MobileMe account use that as a cloud server and good reader. I tried to upload a picture from my ipad of me reading the origional xman series on Good Reader on here but it wouldnt work.
