Hi,

New to the forum and since Christmas the iPad.

As a photographer on location being able to use a USB drive via the connection kit would be really useful. I obviously googled the problems there have been with the power through the port, but was hoping that there might be a tweak / patch via cydia to get around the problem .... But cannot find any information.

Is there any way to get thumb drives to work ?

I'm running IOS5 on the ipad2 if that makes any difference.

Cheers

J

Unfortunately, no, it's still a "catch as catch can" process. There is nothing in Cydia - you just have to keep trying USB drives until one works.

On the brighter side, SDHC cards up to 32 GB work well. So, there's that...
