    Hi I recently saw the article on SSD’s posted on this site that was posted (I think) in June 2019.

    It seemed great that through the files app I would be able to see & interact with a SSD.

    I’ve just bought a Samsung T5 SSD (very compact) in the hope that it would work with my iPad. But I cannot see the SSD.

    Works fine on the MBP.

    Any ideas?

    Hi

    Thanks for this, indeed this is the article that I read. The problem is that when you press ‘Browse’ the Samsung T5 SSD doesn’t appear in the files app ‘On my iPad’ section.

    My iPad uses a lightning connector, does it pass enough power to the SSD?

    Unless there’s a short somewhere, I agree that it may not be putting out enough power for your SSD.

    Is there a known solution to this?

    I’m not aware of any, but hopefully others will offer their comments and suggestions soon.
