As IPAD is not equipped with USB port to connect with EXTERNAL hard DISK, I would like to think about carrying a pocket wi-fi router with a RJ45 port and USB port like AirPort Express in traveling. Unfortunately, AirPort fails to support USB EXTERNAL hard DISK. Is there any other device that supports USB EXTERNAL hard DISK on the market?

I have an EXTERNAL hard DRIVE attached to my Airport Extreme. The benefit of this set-up is having access to my media without it bogging down my Macbooks hard DRIVE because I can access the EXTERNAL hard DRIVE as though it is native to my Macbook.I was wondering if an IPAD would access the EXTERNAL wireless hard DRIVE and the media stored on it the same way my Macbook does.

HiAm I correct in assuming that if I buy the base model IPAD it can HOOK into a wireless network and read straight from and EXTERNAL hard DRIVE that is plugged directly into the wireless router?The reason I ask is, I believe the base model IPAD has 16gb storage capacity yet my iTunes library is lager than this. I want to store all the music files on the EXTERNAL DRIVE with the libabry files on the IPAD pointing to the EXTERNAL hard DRIVE.

Can we ask that Apple consider putting a USB connection on the next version of IPAD for those who want to use an EXTERNAL hard DRIVE for storing images? When traveling some of us have too many images for the IPAD storage and want to archive the RAW versions as well as see what we shot. This USB addition would be perfect for using for this and other applications. It would make the IPAD perfect. macbook pro Mac OS X (10.6.4)...|big-version-ipad-usb-external-hard-drive-connection

When you attempt to sync your IPAD with the computer what is the correct sequence of events. I have launched iTunes and than plugged in my IPAD, or turned off the IPAD and have nothing running on the computer and than plug in the IPAD but no matter what order I seem to try iTunes and the IPAD cant seem to recognize each other.I think the IPAD should be on and at the desktop. On the computer, iTunes should be idle (not running). Than when I plug in the IPAD, it is seen and launches iTunes which should than find my IPAD BUT it doesnt.Any thoughts?Mick Mac G5 Power PC (PPC) Mac OS X (10.5.8)...|hook-procedure-ipad
