Currently Being ModeratedApr 30, 2010 8:40 AM (in response to adk41)And obviously my problem is that I can't transfer any of my files using my laptop because it crashed. So I need a way to get the files from my external hard drive onto the ipad. Is this possible?HP, Windows Vista

You can generally get it's initial startup done at the Apple store, but going forward will require a computer that meets the minimum specs outlined for the iPad.IMac Intel 20" , Mac Mini PPC and MacBook Pro 2.2ghz (4GB RAM, SSD), iPad 64GB, Mac OS X (10.5), iPhone 3G
Currently Being ModeratedApr 30, 2010 1:43 PM (in response to adk41)From what I can see these conditions exist and need to be considered:
1) Your hard drive needs physical and logical connection - no sata/ide connection on iPad
2) iPad isnt a computer in that sense. It is not intended to hold 'data'. It appears that there are ways to do this using other applications...
3) Once you get the files on you iPad there is probably no way of using them other than getting them off the same way
You probably need to get data recovery services or get a computer and a drive adapter. None of these are related to an iPadYou'd have to ask - the list is too large
