I have a WD Secretary 256gb SSD connected to an 8th gen iPad (32gb) from which it draws it's power, having a low capacity I wanted to store data on the SSD but it does not recognise the drive. Thanks for the reply.
So it IS drawing it's power from the same device that the data I/O is?
I understand it is an external hard drive, but the power is still coming from the
same device you want to do data transfers, right?
That MAY be an issue as to why the device is not being seen.
But I have no way of proving or disproving that. Being as it's a Apple product,
I can't get any info or suggest any hardware to help further. Sounds like you may be
stuck paying Apple prices to find an answer. Which is why I'm not a big fan of the company.
I don't like turtleneck shirts/sweaters either. : )
But I am not biased against people who do prefer Apple. Personal choice, I'm all for it.
