Wired, only Hypermac's drive:Did a search but found little.
Can I connect a portable hard drive to my Ipad2? I want to take my portable hard drive with me filled with movies. Does it have to go through iTunes?
That is awesome. ThanksWired, only Hypermac's drive:
Seagate has a wireless drive:
It's just you. The Satellite retails high but it's widely available for $175 and drops to $150 often. For that price you get a 500GB portable drive with a 5-hour battery and Wifi streaming to multiple devices simultaneously. So it's $50-$70 more than a portable drive alone but you're getting reasonable value for the money.is it just me or all these solutions expensive lol
The AirStash used to be $99 without any SD cards and would be a decent solution for you, but at $149, it's a lot less appealing.As far as what I was wanting, taking my existing SD cards or flashdrives and streaming files from them... I'd say yes, expensive as an adapter in a sense. As for buying an external drive itself, no. I'll probably end up buying one but it just sucks that I have like 5 32GB and 3 16GB sd cards sitting here lol
No real catch-22 because you won't be able to access other wireless drives from your iPad, so I wouldn't bother with a wireless solution if it's just for home back-up. Get a wired drive for backup and then stream from iTunes when you're at home. You can also stream from your computer while you're away but you need wifi at both ends.I'm probably going to go with one of the wireless external hard drives on Amazon. I found a 2TB one with pretty good reviews for $169.99. Ironically, it still wouldn't be a solution for me. I was wanting something small and portable to take with me places, but if I'm going to spend over $100 on storage I want it to be big enough for me to back up my home computer. Catch 22 hahaha
That's true. I use with my own dvd rips, so this isn't an issue for me. I guess it all depends on what types of files you want to watch.Except, doesn't this exclude anything that has DRM and everything purchased on iTunes has DRM. That seems like a fairly big limitation.
