Well, the problem is how would you use the hard drive in connection with the ipad? I have the new Seagate wifi drive, but that's designed to be only one way - TO the ipad. That's why I'm using the 2 device process - laptop and drive for storage/editing, and ipad for quick previews. How would you get the photos from your camera onto the hard drive? If you put them onto the ipad first, there's still no way that I know of to then move them from the ipad to the hard drive.

I think the newest model of Seagate GoFlex allows you to upload photos from your device TO the GoFlex unit. Here's the relevant part of the spec sheet:

When you need more storage capacity on your smartphone or tablet, you can easily off-load photos and videos from your device’s camera roll by uploading them to your Wireless Plus storage device using the Seagate Media app.

So, it appears that if you can get your photos into the iPad's Camera Roll, you can move them to the GoFlex unit.

The question then becomes: Can Photos added to the iPad through the Camera Connection Kit be moved to the Camera Roll? IIRC, normally the Camera Roll stores photos taken with the iPad itself or if you save them from a website. New added photos from the CCK are put in a new album separate from the Camera Roll. I do not know of a way to move photos from an Album to the Camera Roll.

^^that's great! I haven't had the time to play around with it yet, and I didn't know that it was indeed 2 way. Since I use an Eye-Fi card, that is easy - it puts your photos in your Camera Roll by default. From there, I can copy freely to the Seagate.

I hope to have some time to try it out this weekend and will report back on success/failure, and transfer speed.

how fast are transfer rates between ipad and seagate wifi stream? I'd imagine to be pretty slow

I did a quick transfer of a 750.71MB movie through a ftp app on my ipad. Took 262.2 secs. so that's 2.86 MB/s. not that fast in comparison to a direct connection. But apple has limited the ipad's capabilities, of course. so the seagate satellite drive is one of the only choices.

If you're asking about streaming in HD, my only reference is a 1080p movie, mp4 format at 2.3gigs. It streamed fine. I've converted all my files to mp4 so they're mobile device friendly.


I'd like to comment on the camera connection kit process, but i havent gotten around to buying it.

just an FYI pertaining to eye-fi. The custom firmware has the ability to make the seagate an eye-fi server. So the pictures dont need to pass through the ipad. I'm not too familiar with eye-fi myself, but here is the page about the eye-fi server (external link)
