Hey, anyone can tell me where to get these online? Preferably Amazon US. I found a few on Amazon but the price difference between similar looking connection kits and some with bad reviews is holding my purchase. Anyone care to tell me where they get theirs?

I won't off and left most of my sd cards at home in my little sd card box. I had one in my air stash and I had my portable hard drive with me. So I tried to use my laptop to transfer files from my portable hard drive to laptop via USB (fast) and then from my laptop to my Airstash sd card. No matter how I did that transfer it was slow....not sure where the problem is....likely the card because USB is faster than what I'm seeing with this card.

So, I'm thinking of getting the patriot node that is listed in the first post of this thread. That way I can use a 2.5 inch drive in the enclosure and have more space on one device (not as portable, but then I don't have to worry about leaving something if I load it up). I'd just get the one with no storage included as I have plenty. Anyone here have a Node?

Hey

I've posted a thread in ipad hacking and a forum colleague pointed me this discussion.
I have an jb ipad 2 with CCK and an 8 gb flash drive with avi and mkv movies on it.
Is there any way i can watch the movies from my flash drive ? In ifile app i selected the movie and open with video player .
The black screen from the video player appeared along with the progress bar and fwd/play buttons showing my movie's time remaining and then nothing.
Nothing else happened .I've tried to copy the movie to my ipad but the result was the same.

I responded to you over on the patriot forum. I can play avi's using the ACE Player and the Samba login on the node. I don't think the Gaunlet Node app supports avi's. Also, I could not make Oplayer HD lite work, not sure why....

But what can I do according to point III and IV or the first page? It seems like I can use either a USB-memory or a SD-card to browse the memories?
I have bought Goodreader but my SD-card doesn´t show up in goodreader.
Is there any guide how to see browsee files on the SD-card? I suppose it works, otherwise point III and IV are unnecessary to have on the first page.

Could someone explain?
