    Default Is there a way to...

    use an iPad as an external monitor for an iPod?

    I have the 32GB iPad 2 so I don't have a ton of room for movies. I have enough room for 99% of the time, but those times where I'm traveling or will be in an airport and on a plane and what not, I'd like to have more options than my iPad can hold.

    So is there a way to plug my 160GB iPod into my iPad and use it as a monitor to watch a movie that's stored on my iPod?

    I don't think this is possible but hopefully the iPad 3 comes with larger storage capacity.

    Take the camera connection kit. It has usb port. With that, you may be able to put your movies (only mp4) to your iPad. Of course if you have the apps for that. I dont know any apps for that but maybe some friends knows.
