    No.

    This drive is intended to connect to your Macintosh computer via USB or Thunderbolt.

    There is no simple way to connect an external drive to your iPad to expand the internal storage.

    You could use your iPad to access files from your Macintosh via WiFi. Or you can access from iCloud.

    For iPad check out the Seagate GoFlex Satellite drive. It connects to your iPad via Wifi. After its loaded with your content, just turn it on. You dont even need to take it out of your bag. A very nice addition without actually adding anything (physically) to your iPad.

    Seagate GoFlex Satellite description:

    "A great external hard drive for iPad that can extend the storage of any wireless enabled device via the GoFlex free app. The device can be accessed via Safari Browser, where you have to input the IP address of the external storage device to have access to the files on it. With a 500 GB space, it can be a great addition to any wireless device, and because it has a light weight and a small case, it can be carried to work or vacation easily."
