I'm a new iPad user. I just bought the iPad3 64GB. I bought the Camera Control kit but was disappointed to learn it only imports images. The SD adapter doesn't work at all. Is this common?


I want to use an external hard drive as additional storage, to read images, video, movies, notes, documents, spreadsheets, PDFs, ect without having to import them.


How can I do this? I know Seagate just released a WiFi hard drive. Does a drive need to have a specific file system?



iPad (3rd generation) Wi-Fi, iOS 5.1.1
