    I have heard there exists an adapter that you can plug in to your iPad and your pc through a USB port to transfer files easily, where to get that ?

    To use your iPad as a USB drive, you'll need iExplorer. Its freeware that works really good as long as you don't screw around with the files inside your iPad.

    You will also need the sync cable that came with your iPad to use it.

    Absent a jailbreak there's no file system in the iOS to allow for these types of transfers. You can transfer photos/video to the iPad with the camera connection kit, but not the other way around. Third-party apps like Dropbox will allow for wireless transfers of certain types of files to/from the iPad.

    Otherwise, explore a jailbreak.

    As a previous poster said, the Camera Connection Kit only allows you to transfer photos/video TO the iPad, and only if they are in the DCIM folder (or subfolders). And it only works for photos and video, not other documents.

    Unless you jailbreak, you can't copy any files FROM the iPad onto a USB stick or SD memory card.

    So the person you spoke to was mostly wrong if they implied that you could copy anything to/from the iPad.

    Why would you start a second thread on this?

    Adapter stick for IPad

    No, the device itself functions as the "memory Stick" and can be used with iPad, Mac, PC, etc and data can be transferred and read by all these devices,
