I would like to find out if it is possible to attach a cable from a My Passport device to an iPad using a couple of cables?? Sort of based around the usual’ Apple Lightning cable. The purpose being to save or retrieve items on the My Passport drive.
I don’t think so, but I am not sure, and I would like to find out from someone who is suitably knowledgable.
I am thinking 'what needs to power the WD Passport - can the Apple iPad supply the power, and would the cable connections be correct anyway?
I was thinking using the usual supplied Apple Lightning cable (male Lightning plug to male USB plug ) to a USB 3 Cable that connects to the My Passport (Female USB to Micro USB type B)
I’m aware that there is 5v going through so it may not be straight forward! …
