Hello, I just purchased purchased an iPad for my father in-law for christmas. he is ... very teck-unsavvy - and I have been out of the game for sometime myself. He loves to take photos but since his son accidentally deleted a card full of vacation photos he is extremely nervous about backing up his photos. So instead of backing up his photos he just continues to buy more memory cards for his cameras. I think he's up to about 20 x 16gb cards currently. So we purchased the 64gb iPad Air 2 for him in hopes of showing him how easy it was to get his photos on there, do some basic editing and print directly to an AirPrint ready printer (when he gets one). Well, as it turns out, he is LOVING his iPad (who wouldn't!) and has asked me for a solution to backup everything to a hard drive without the need for a computer. Whether thats going from Compact Flash --> iPad --> hard drive or even Compact Flash --> hard drive -> view on iPad --> AirPrint. I was wondering if anyone has a really nice solution for this. Are there such hard drives that are network ready, maybe, that can backup the photos on an iPad or from a compact flash card and then somhow view the photos from the hard drive on the iPad? The easier the solution the better as he is just afraid of technology. Thank you very much and hope someone knows of a solution I am looking for. ~nD I hope someone can help.
