I am trying to write a video to a flash drive from my iPad to give to a client. It’s just not working. The progress indicator just spins and spins, but the file never copies to the flash drive. I’m not sure what the problem is. Wrong format, perhaps? Any advice would be most appreciated. I have usually just had clients download from Vimeo, but this client wants it on a flash drive, and I’m just stuck.

Are you trying to write straight to the flash drive?

Try exporting it first and see if you can then copy it to the flash drive using the files app

I have tried both ways with the same results. The indicator simply spins but the file does not copy to the external drive, whether thumb drive or Sandisk Extreme SSD.. I am using a new M1 iPad Pro.

Could writing the file with different settings help?

If you were just trying to write the file directly from LumaFusion to the drive then I would probably suggest trying to 'optimise' the project

But if you have already rendered it out and are trying to write the file using just the files app (which is still pretty flaky but should be better with ios15) then effectively you're just trying to copy a file from one location to another

Can you successfully copy a similarly sized file not created by LmaFusion to your drive using the files app?

A couple things to check:

- Are you connecting the Sandisk Extreme directly or through a USB-C hub?
- If you are using the USB adapter, make sure you align it correctly. It only goes one way, but it can be connected inverted, and will not work
- Try the File Browser app. It helped me with a corruption issue I had with the Apple files app, which is very lacking. A bit better in iPadOS 15, but still years behind File Browser.

Hope it helps

I downloaded the trial version, but I can’t figure out how to get into my “On My iPad” files. Attached is a screenshot that isn’t very helpful. Can you explain?

Yeah, I almost never use local storage, unless necessary, but I can see that the On my iPad icon doesn’t work.

I did added a location, select App folder, then put any name you want, and then hit Select Location and select On my iPad. It worked for me. Please confirm.

Yes, that worked for accessing the files. Thank you. I am currently trying to copy the mp4 to the flash drive, which was recognized in the app. It's been spinning for a few minutes (no progress bar - I guess that's iOS dependent), so I can't tell if anything is actually being done. I'll report back. FYI, I am using a VAVA USB-C hub for connecting the flash drive.

EDIT: Finally gave up after about 20 minutes of spinning. The file did not move. It’s about 1.9 GB, so I felt like that was plenty of time.

Even after canceling the transfer and removing the hub, I still see the flash drive downloading, as seen below,
