    At work we got a new iPad 2. We got the one with the 16gb of internal memory. I, along with my boss, was going to use it separately and have our own pictures, etc to show clients. Our thought was to each have an SD card to keep our pictures on and we could swap them out as we needed.

    After getting the iPad and the SD card adapter, we realized you can only import or delete pictures from the SD card that have been formatted and taken by a digital camera. Extremely disappointing! Is there an app or some way to view the pictures directly off the SD card without importing them to the iPad? We want to be able to show pictures of our work to clients w/o having to use up internal memory. I think it is pretty crappy of Apple to not even allow you to view images off of an SD card when so many tablets out there will let you do this.

    Can anyone help?

    You can do this using the Seagate GoFlex Satellite. I have seen reviews where people have trouble, but I have not. It's 500GB and the size if a small paperback book. Wireless access and rechargeable. I got an email today aSeagate will be coming out with an update to address some of the complaints posted on the site from reviewers. It was made at first for pics and movies, but you can view documents also. Works best with the program that came with the drive. Sync via a PC. And now they have it available for the Macs
