Is there a portable hardware (not a laptop, please) one may bring along that allows to bridge this gap of file transfer from a thumb drive wirelessly (WiFi or Bluetooth) to an iPad?
This exact same issue resurfaced again this week to my surprise.
I greatly appreciate your help.
I am not sure if this will work and this is an AWFUL workaround, but I did the following in order to store movies on a SD card that was readable (via camera connection kit) by the ipad
1) create a DCIM folder on the sd card
2) drop your movies in here
3) make sure the movies only have 8 characters and is in a format supported by ipad
4) plug sd card in
5) movies show up in "photo" (since ipad thinks the sd card has pics)
6) import movies to ipad
Unfortunately, Photo will not show you the file name, only the length of the movie.. sucks
The only way i could figure out how to transport movies to watch on the ipad without storing the movies on the ipad.
