I dont know iOS that well, but if all else fails, maybe you could use Dropbox, Google Drive or something similar. Would the camera connection kit adapter work, doesn't it give you USB connector?

As I said, I don't know iOS that well but I have heard about this kind of limitations on iOS and Apple's mobile devices. With Android, I can simply connect the device by using USB and just transfer those files, regardless of what machine I have...

I believe the camera adapter kit gives you an sd card slot not USB.

According to this page and comments that kit offers USB connection:

http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC...connection-kit

But there was also this in the comments -section:

After updating to ios 601, you get a message that this accessory is not supported by the iPhone.

Probably affects iPad too?

As far as I know, without jailbreaking, you cannot access the iPad's storage and file system manually like an external disc. You're probably better off buying a USB flash disc or external HD.
