I’m using an adapter to use my USB-A thumb drives with my iPad (7th generation, ios 14.4). Problem is I can’t find it on the screen. I’ve tried looking in Settings and the Files folder, but still can’t find it Where do i look? Thank you. Ed

I think I found the problem I noticed my iPad wasn’t charging so I unplugged the charger cord from my adaptor and plugged it directly into the iPad and it worked. So, since the USB port on the adaptor is where I plug my USB thumb drive, it must mean the adaptor is defective. I bought it on Amazon and it’s been in use for perhaps a week! That’s a disappointment!

Apple is sending me a new adaptor, no need to return the defective one. If it goes bad again, I’ll look into possibly using a powered USB hub instead, unless any of you folks have a better idea. Ed
