    Top External Memory Storage Options For iPad

    After buying Apple's new iPad Mini or iPad 4, many folks would be looking for a top rated external hard drive ( HDD ) which act as a reliable extended memory storage solution for your precious tablet. Mini and 4th generation Apple tablet comes with limited storage options i.e 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. You can't extend storage capacity of your iPad by using SD card because it doesn't support it. Moreover, you can't connect USB 2.0 or 3.0 directly to it. These drawbacks make you wonder that what are the ways around these obstacles?
    Fortunately, there are some working storage solutions in the market which use wireless data transfer technology or Apple Camera Connection Kit for USB interface and these products work without any jailbreak method. Here, we're going to review the best external hard drives for iPad Mini, iPad 4, 3, 2 and the original iPad.

    Well I have searched online on the mentioned products above, most of the wireless hard drives are expinsive, but the camera connection kit is the most coast effective, but a lot of people online said that no body can playback a Video or a Movie from the memory card you have to copy it first to the I pad watch it then delete it, the only solution to overcome this draw back is to jail break the ipad and use an app called I file.

    If your device is not Jailbroken at this point, and you are running the current firmware, there is little chance you'll be able to jailbreak it, in my opinion. Certainly if you have the current firmware on it it can not be jailbroken at this point.

    The Camera connection kit has issues with many self powered hard drives. And it requires knowledge of Linux.

    I would pick up the 0.99$ App called Airvideo, download/store your movies on a computer and stream it through wifi.
    I saw recently a nifty little product at Futureshop, it's a small wireless adapter/broadcaster. You insert am SD card into the slot and turn it on, then it becomes discoverable on a mobile device. It says that it works with iPad, so that might be an option. It has an 8 hour continuous battery life, which isn't too bad, might work well for movies.
