    I'm afraid that Apple didn't design the iPad to be used directly connected to a USB device. You would need to transfer any videos that you want on your iPad to iTunes and from there sync them over to the iPad. Hope it helps.

  • You can actually access your files like movies and music etc from your Mac or wireless hard drive through the 'Plex' app. I use mine with a NAS drive so i didnt always have to leave my mac on to access my files.
