    Hi

    I have an external hardrive ( Passport) stacked full of downloaded films which I use to watch on my lap top through VCL. Works really well.

    I have now acquired an Iphone ( 4G ) and want to us the external harddrive in the same way .

    Can it be done ? If so what is the process and what sort of adapter do I need ?

    Hoping some one can help

    You cannot use the hard drive directly with your iPhone. The hard drive would need to be on a wifi network and attached to a computer running iTunes with home sharing turned on. There are hard drives that have built in wifi and you can connect the phone to that wifi and use a special iOS app to access the hard drive.
