    Well I'm new and need help with my ipad. I only have a 16gb ipad 2 and need more space for movie and music. I know that seagate satellite mobile wireless storage hard drive works but I don't have £150 to just spend on that. So I looked on eBay and found this,

    I was just wondering if anyone has either bought something like this or knows if it will work and is good or not, thanks.

    Hello - the 'stock' iPad will not function w/ a cabled external HD; although the CCK (Camera Connection Kit) comes w/ a USB adapter, the sole purpose is to attach a digital camera for transferring images. So sorry but any external storage device that needs a cabled connection is not an option.

    As you already mentioned, a 'wireless' solution is your main choice, and a number exist - e.g. checkout the iUSBport HERE - hopefully, others will 'chime in' who may have solved this issue on the iPad - good luck! :)

    I have tried just about all of the wireless streamers and have been pretty impressed with the Kingston Digital MobileLite Wireless Flash Reader.

    You can use SD or USB flash drives. I have been using a couple of micro-SDXC 64GB cards and it has been working great. It also has the additional benefit of being a back-up battery for your iPhone. For $69.99 US. it is not a bad price especially if you already have some flash storage cards lying around.

    I second the Kingston. It works great so far.
