    Hi. Thanks for your question -- it's a common one.

    The ipad only supports photos via USB. to do that, you would get the camera connection kit, and it should allow you to plug in a usb key full of photos, although I haven't tried it.

    Goodreader is really my preferred app for doing file transfers.

    Also, Evernote is excellent as a go between between computer and ipad. The app store will highlight many other apps that work well together. (Mac or PC can run evernote.)

    For more, please post in the apple discussions.

  • No, because, there's neither USB connection nor adapter on the KB.

    NOTE: The KB comes with a battery-charging cable. One end plugs into the mini-USP connector on the KB; the other end connects to a standard USB connector on a computer. As far as I know, this is only for charging the KB battery.

  • No. It's just a bluetooth keyboard, without any on-board intelligence to "read" a USB drive or any way to transmit the data. The microUSB is used solely for charging.
