    Hi all,
    Is it possible (perhaps with a card reader) to access & read a flash drive memory stick on my ipad2 as you can on a P.C

    No - at most you'd be able to upload photos to the iPad. But you cannot use it as an external 'hard drive'.

    I am able to watch videos and play music from the 1gb flash drive I have. It is a microcenter brand flash drive. I am going to go to the store this weekend to try out a 16 or 32gb before I buy. I have a 64gb iPad but it wouldn't hurt my feelings to be able to use a memory stick like an external drive.

    Hi Jawbraker - you might want to explain exactly how you have accomplished the above? The CCK (Camera Connection Kit) which I own will allow one to attach either a SD card (from a digital camera recognizing the DCIM directory) or an USB plug in again from a digital camera; I've tried to put other USB drives into the latter connection device but w/o success; so, please explain how you are achieving these claims - thanks. :)

    I'd be interested to know too. Is this a JB iPad, perhaps?
