This just in from the Department of Crazy iPad Tips: you can get photos off a floppy disk into the Photos app on the iPad. Yes, a floppy disk – you know, like cavemen used before they invented fire.
Seriously though, I guess if you happen to have some cherished photos of your own, or perhaps some from an older relative, stored on an old-school floppy disk – then this is a heck of a handy thing to know about. And it’s very easy to do. All you need is an iPad Camera Connection Kit, a USB floppy drive, a folder on it called DCIM, and file names for the photo files that use DOS style 8 character file names.
Thanks to Niles for letting us know about this video.
