Can I use an external USB hard drive with my iPad?

No. Reports indicate the USB adapter does not support external USB storage solutions.

The iPad Camera Connection Kit comes with a 30-pin dock connector to USB adapter. Although this was initially advertised by Apple as only supporting digital camera connections, reports indicate several USB devices are compatible with the iPad. The Camera Connection Kit is available now for $29.
