Is anyone using their camera kit and an external hard drive with their iPad? If so, how is it working? How long did the process take? Any issues?

Thanks in advance.

It will not work...

Wait, what? I have seen like 2 dozen videos of people that have it working perfectly, as long as the external is self powered. Gotta be jailbroken though.

Yeah, I've seen the same videos as well. Most of the articles were posted back in May, so I was also wondering if there's an update to this, i.e. faster and easier way.

It's really not a practical hack right now. You need to mount the filesystem manually via the command line and there's not really much that you can do with it after it's mounted. It would be cool if someone could make a gui tool for that, though!

All I saw was that you plug in the external to the camera kit and use file to access the Files.

It works with a low power USB drive like a thumb drive. You can access the drive using ifile

I've heard of someone using a wireless hard drive on the iPad. I tried it with the camera kit and no go..

What I would love is some sort of hack that allows me to embed some sort of storage in my iPad case, and then plug it almost flush into the iPad bottom when its in the case. That would be AMAZING. Never gonna happen, but I can dream.
