    Default downloading info to ipad???

    Hi folks, new member to this forum here. I hope someone can help me with a little problem I'm having. I'm new to the Ipad and not real tech savy. So here it is.

    I downloaded pictures and 2 video clips i took with my camera from my desktop pc onto a portable 8 gig backup drive. I'm trying to send that information to my I-pad via a connector that I bought at walmart that has a usb connection on one end and a regular Ipad connection on the other end. The Ipad dosen't seem to notice the backup drive when I connect it to the Ipad.

    I've done the same thing by connecting the camera to the Ipad via the same connector and it works.

    Am I doing something wrong or is it not possible to download from a backup drive?

    The camera connection kit is for a camera. It won't work with anything else.
