    Hello,

    Brand new user of iPad3, and have a few pretty basic questions, please.
    My PC is Windows 7 based.
    My Router is a new Cisco/Linksys EA3500, and has the extra USB Port in it.

    a. Using iTunes, I can get pix, wirelessly, loaded into the iPad from my PC.
    Great.

    How do I go the other way; from the iPad to the PC to send pix to the PC that I took with the iPad ?

    b. I have a zillion pix on my PC.
    From the iPad, is it possible to look over, and then select, the few that I might want to send to the iPad wirelessly ?

    In other words, I would like to see, from the iPad, what pix are on my PC
    before any transmitting of a selected few from the PC to the iPad ?
    Is this possible ? How ?

    c. Last one, I promise:
    If I put a USB memory stick, or possible an external HD into the USB Port on the Router, how can I access what is in them from the iPad ?

    Much thanks. Really appreciate the help.

    Bob

    1. Use either the in built Photo Stream or Windows Camera And Scanner Wizard.

    2. Not easily.

    3. No.

    Get FileBrowser app. Once you have it set up, it should take care of all a~c.

    Dropbox is a great free app. Great for getting photos onto and off of your device.

    Logmein is another great app that allows for remote control of your desktop.

    Maybe a combination of these will help you out. (Not sure about the USB memory stick in your router, I don't think that will do anything?)

    As others have said, filebrowser will do everything you want. you can connect to any shared drive. And it is dead easy to setup.
