    if you have iFile from Cydia, it now supports FILE TRANSFER from usb and SD card devices. you can now transfer ANY files to and from the iPad just like a PC or a laptop. what im waiting for is the USB printer support but i guess that's just too much wishful thinking. :D

    this will be useful if you only have your iPad with you and your classmate needs to get that file that your were working on Pages and there's no wifi connection around.

    you can actually discard your laptop or pc because of this function. (iFile's new interace actually looks like Finder from OSX)

    i don't still dont have my camera connection kit though. do they have this on DH? i found a cheaper clone from focalprice for only $20. 2-in-1 pa with SDcard support.

    Thanks, BlackAngel and ice_man.

    Stupid question: I thought you needed to jailbreak an Apple gadget to install Cydia. Is there a way to add Cydia legally?

    bikermama: You need to jailbreak to install Cydia. This is a violation of the EULA but not illegal.

    BlackAngel: You do.

    I wish Apple will come out with a way to use the connector with out the need for jailbreaking. It would really put the iPad out there as a true productivity tool.

    Here's a stupid question: I was able to sync my pics from my 350D to my ipad. How do I transfer my pics from the ipad to the PC? I synced my itunes already but I can't seem to find the pics.

    Thinking of getting an iPad and the Camera Connection Kit. I'm reading mixed reviews/comments/notes and I'm hoping someone can help me. Sony uses a different kind of memory stick -- and I use a card reader to transfer files from that stick to my MacBook (via USB). Does the Camera Connection Kit support card readers?

    Btw, got mine for 3K in GH. Didn't have time to meet up w/ cheaper resellers.

    Love mine as I don't need to bring my laptop to load and upload pics after using my cam.

    finally gave in and got myself the pair...


    thing works alright, but i just found the process of accessing and importing photos from a cam or memory card toooooooooo slow :confused:

    is it the same experience with everyone else?


    (cam is a Lumix LX3 and/or 4GB SDHC that is roughly 30-40% loaded...everytime i get to plug devices in, it takes about 5 mins to show the thumbnails)

    If I connect the CCK directly to my camera (Canon 350D), it is very slow. But when I connect to my card reader instead, the thumbnail display and file transfer goes much faster.

    Finally got mine at the Official Apple Store in Shanghai last week (BEAUTIFUL)!

    219 RMB or about 1450 pesos.

    I'm currently using the keyboard from our iMac and it's such a great experience. A definite must-have for the iPad.

    Great accessory!!!
