Hi, I have a iPad mini and want to take it away on a trip with a lot of Word documents that I may want to refer to while away. I have tried using a USB memory stick after buying a plug in for an iPad but it seems the power required to activate the USB stick it too much for the iPad!!!?? [and only one plug] I want to put on, or at least have access to, about 200 files that are not particularly large. Why is it not possible to use this USB stick etc..? I am aware it is possible to put files on to the iPad via my iMac but there are a lot of files to upload. Are all tablets as restrictive as this with moving data on to them…..it seems to me to be a black art? My iPad seems only useful to look at the web and store images and not for "real" work! I may have to look at other manufacturers but I like Apple stuff…..Help?
