Unfortunately with all the great that there is with I devices they are restricted compared to Android. It is a combination of software and hardware restrictions.
If you want the I cool effect, you live with it. If you want flexibility from your device and platform go Android.
Not knocking IProducts here, just stating a simple truth.
I like my IPad, as soon as I sell my KindleFire and Vizio tablets my IP will be my on the go device and my Toshiba Thrive my at home device.

Use the USB disk app. You transfer files between your iPad and your laptop or desktop without using iTunes. Just download the USB disk app and then read the instructions. Pretty simple and smooth.
Cheers.

Hello,

I have a big problem!! I am new to iPad and I have to find a way to take ALL my work documents with me when on the road (so far no sync is requiered). On my PC these documents are mixed file formats (doc, ppt, xls, txt, dwg, jpg, png, ... you name it), organized in a complex folder structure. Transfering only one file at a time (from PC to iPad through iTunes) simply isn't time wise or feasible. I also understood that copying MyDocs folder structures, by third party app, directly on iPad is not possible.

My best scenario would be to be able to take MyDocs (about 4GB) on a USB stick and read individual files when needed.

If you have any advice for me, please take into consideration that the places I travel usually don't have internet access, so, solutions such as Dropbox and iCloud are not feasible for me.

Thanks.

Drop box will work, but free version is only 2GB. I have transferred many file types with drop box.

hello!

my problem was: I got usb stick with some data but I haven't my laptop with me, and also haven't other possibility to send the data to dropbox. it was like only usb an my ipad. that is why I asked if there is a possibility to connect usb with ipad.

so, the answer is only dropbox (if I say it correctly) or icloud or something like that.

thanks for the answer.

Would using one of the external hard drives from Seagate or Wester Digital work?
Not cheap at $150-200 but you should be able to transfer docs and other things as needed. Plus they give you between 32GB and 500gb of storage.
