Is it possible to have two USB drives for the IPad?  I want to bring RAW photo files from my camera, through the IPad and back to an external hard drive.  One of my cameras does not use an SD card.  How can I do this?

Is it possible to have two USB drives for the IPad?  I want to bring RAW files from my camera through the IPad and out to an external hard drive.  One of my cameras has an SD card but the other one doesn't have a card that would fit in any of the camera devices I've seen on line.  Realted to this, I bought the IPad camera accessory.  Can I put the SD card in the device and also hook the external hard drive to the USB port of the accessory and download from the camera to the hard drive?  Can I put Lightroom or the Nikon photo editing software on the IPad?  Right now I carry a PC laptop and external hard drives with me on wildernes trips.  Internet and WiFi are not available.  Because I shoot so many photos and they're in RAW I need to download from the camera to the external drive because I run out of memory on the PC (and it has much more memory than the IPad).  I have Nikon NX software and lightroom on my PC.  I'd love to be able to reduce the weight I carry by using the IPad to edit my photos each night while on trips.  Is this possible and how would I do it?  I'd appreciate any guidance.

No, the camera connection kit only supports the copying of photos and videos to the Photos app, it doesn't support copying content off the iPad. For your second camera instead of the SD reader part of the kit, does the iPad to camera cable not work with it for direct transfer to the iPad ?
For Lightroom and Nikon software again no - you can only install apps that are available in the iTunes app store on your computer and the App Store app on the iPad, 'normal' PC and Mac (OS X) software are not compatible with the iPad (iOS). There are some apps that perform fairly basic editing functions that are available in the store, but nothing as sophisticated as, for example, Lightroom.

    When you import images or create other data files, file them in the appropriate places on your internal drive, don't delete them and let Time machine back them up.

    Downgrading the iOS is not supported, and likely has caused the problems you are experiencing.
    You'll need to go elsewhere for support.

  • How can I transfer the music files from my iTunes ver: 9.0.? on my external hard drive to my new laptop with the latest version of iTunes?

    A few years ago I had copied my iTunes, ver:9.0.?, from my old laptop tom my external hard drive. The music on it was already loaded onto my other devices. My old computer crashed andI bought a new one, put iTunes on it and kept it updated. The problem is I forgot to keep the iTunes on my ecternal hatd drive updated. I tried to open the external hard drive iTunes but received a error with something to the effect that there was a newwerversion of iTune. I was hoping to either put the external Itunes music on my device. How can I go about that now?

    Type "move itunes library" into the google search bar.

  • Since installing the latest Itunes my phone does not auto sync as before, how can I set this up?

    Since i updated to the newest ITunes my phone does not automatically sync as it did before. I am not able to locate my pictures or music or apps to set to auto sync. I receive no message that tells when the phone was last backed up to ICloud. I have several songs on ITunes under ICloud that are in the waiting status. This is all confusing. I have clicked on every available option.
    Thank you

    I'm afraid at this point a backup can't be created anymore and the phone has been damaged too much by the water.
    You'll have to get it replaced and use the latest existing backup you have.

  • Restoring and backing up an external hard drive

    I have had a WD My Book external for a few years and it has been working great up until yesterday. This is what is showing up.
    As I am typing this it is no longer grayed out, I am in the process of copying and pasting to the new 3TB External. This is freaking me out... For future reference what do I do in the restore tab if anyone can help.

    Your iPhone's backup, which is created and maintained by iTunes stores data such as most iPhone settings, email account settings, contact info, SMS messages, notes, recent calls, call favorites, photos available in your iPhone's camera roll (you shouldn't depend on your iPhone's backup alone for these photos, which should be imported by your computer as with any other digital camera), and 3rd party app settings and data created and stored by a 3rd party app.
    It isn't necessary to backup your iPhone's backup. You can manually update your iPhone's backup at any time without syncing, and the same when connecting your iPhone with iTunes on another computer. With your iPhone connected to iTunes and without syncing, control-click on your iPhone and at the menu window that appears, select Back Up.
    Maintaining a backup of your iTunes library is much more important - copying the entire iTunes named folder to an external drive or some other external media used for backup purposes.
    Since the iPhone is designed to be synced with a supported application on your computer for contact info and calendar events, you should maintain a backup of the supported application on your computer for this data. Photos transferred from your computer to your iPhone are not included with your iPhone's backup, so these photos should be included with your computer's backup along with all other important data.
    When syncing an iPhone with iTunes on another computer, only iTunes content on the iPhone will be erased first, not all data on your iPhone such as contact info and calendar events. When selecting photos to be transferred to your iPhone from another computer, all photos available on your iPhone that were transferred from another computer will be erased first. If you don't select to sync contact info and calendar events with a supported application on another computer, contact info and calendar events on your iPhone will not be touched.

  • IPod Touch shows up on My Computer, but freezes iTunes, and does NOT show up on iTunes, how can i fix this?

    I have honestly spent countless hours trying to fix this, I FINALLY got it to show in My Computer, driver is updated, I have re-installed iTunes numerous times, recently did a FRESH Windows 7 Ultimate re-install, i can't restore the iPod (because it has been restored, and I can't even access it via iTunes) My iPod is NOT broken, it works on my laptop fine, it shows up on iTunes and My Computer, no problem. However, I need to use my iPod on my main computer for songs (iPod's practically new by the way) Like my question states, my iTunes freezes up, and it's very strange because it freezes, then a couple minutes later iTunes works fine, BUT my iPod doesn't show up on the side like it's supposed to. I've done everything, I hope I get some good support, thanks in advance!
    ~Thomas
    Edit: I have the latest update for the driver, and iTunes, iPod has 4.3.3

  • My Yahoo Toolbar is installed, enabled but does not show in toolbar. How can I correct this problem?

    my.yahoo.com is my home page. I have used Yahoo Toolbar for a long time. The toolbar has been working well even today. I opened Firefox and the toolbar was gone. I looked at Preferences, Manage Add-ons and Yahool Toolbar is installed and enabled. However, the toolbar buttons that were there before are no longer there and I cannot get them back. I am using Firefox 4.01, which I have reinstalled.

    Click on the "View" tab and the toolbar names should be listed there. Click on the one you want and it will come on

    Restoration gone wrong!

    Try replacing the iPod in recovery mode and they restore again via iTunes on your computer. For recovery mode see:

  • I recently changed my Apple ID password, but it does not work on iCloud. How can I fix this?

    Yesterday I changed my Apple ID password. Now iCloud keeps popping up now and then telling me to log in. And I enter the new password and it doesn't work! I am 100% sure that I am entering the password correctly. That popping up of iCloud is so annoying

    Try to:
    1) Login on www.icloud.com and see if it works from there
    2) Remove you iCloud account from the Mac, and readd it
    3) Reset your password again: http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2617

  • The iTune cannot detect my iPhone. I have already tried all methods suggested, including re-installling iTune, re-activating Apple Mobile Device, plugging in various USB ports, and etc. I use windows 7. How can I solve this?

    The iTune cannot detect my iPhone 4S. I have already tried all methods suggested, including re-installling iTune, re-activating Apple Mobile Device, plugging in various USB ports, and etc. I use windows 7. How can I solve this?

    The new cable is completely new, and my computer can detect the phone as a drive, and battery charging is ok. So I believe the USB cable works properly. It is so weird that just iTune itself cannot detect the phone, and it is of the most updated version. What else can I do? Thanks.

    i tried transferring my iphoto library from my old macbook onto my new macbook pro (via external hard drive), but when i open the new iphoto, it seems to have transferred ALL images ever used on my old macbook. so i tried to just delete all those images so i could try a different approach to transferring, but the new iphoto won't let me do anything and every time i try to delete anything it crashes (since the image amount is so high).  please help!!
    MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), iphoto '11, version 9.4.2

    To move an iPhoto Library to a new machine:
    Link the two Macs together: there are several ways to do this: Wireless Network,Firewire Target Disk Mode, Ethernet, or even just copy the Library to an external HD and then on to the new machine...
    But however you do choose to link the two machines...
    Simply copy the iPhoto Library from the Pictures Folder on the old Machine to the Pictures Folder on the new Machine.
    Then launch iPhoto. That's it.
    This moves photos, events, albums, books, keywords, slideshows and everything else.

  • How can I get Time Machine to back up an external hard drive (iPhotos) that is attached to airport extreme base station. Note: Time machine is usb to macbook pro and external drive with iphotos is usb to airport extreme base station. Help please. Thanks!

    Once you have the drive connected to your Mac, click System Preferences (gear icon) on the dock
    Click Time Machine
    Click Options
    Be default, the hard drive will be Excluded from backups. Click the drive to highlight it, then click the "-" (minus) button at the bottom of the list to remove the drive from Excluded items.
    The drive will be backed up on the next Time Machine pass
    Everything above assumes that the hard drive has been formatted in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) as Time Machine will only backup drives in that format.
