Edit: After half day, my wife’s Mac started having the same problem. I have then applied the solution that I found in the Apple
Transferring A File Two Way Between PC/Mac And iOS Using i-FlashDrive
The most common complaint about iPad (and less common about iPod touch and iPhone) is probably the need of connectivity for printing and data transfer. There are no USB ports and no Ethernet. And there aren’t any media card slots either. Your USB flash drives are useless in this case.
In a survey done on 3000 iPad owners, it was found that they wanted an actual USB port (48% people) along with Flash support (44% people) and optical drive (42% people). It seems that wireless is not quite sufficient for most users.
Our solution, i-FlashDrive from PhotoFast doesn’t help with Adobe Flash support, however it does give an easy workaround as the USB port issue doesn’t hold any longer. This technique asserts that it is the only device that allows two-way storage to transfer files between PC/Mac and iOS devices.
This is a small flash drive that has a USB port present on one side and a 30 pin Apple iDevice connector to the other side. This i-FlashDrive is present in many versions like 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB. Apart from that, there is a complementary application that allows managing file backup and archiving, viewing and organization. It also includes voice recorder and text editor.
Features of i-FlashDrive:
- Automated prompt as it connects to any iDevice
- Free download application for file management
- Supports all new iDevice models
- Works with iPhone4, iPad, and iPod Touch
- Works as a regular flash drive as well
- Can be used without iDevices
- Works with both PC and Mac
- Works on all desktop operating systems like Windows, Mac and Linux among others.
i-FlashDrive is developed for iPod touch (3G and 4G), iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad and iPad 2. It requires Windows XP/7 or Mac OS X along with iOS4.2.
