first of all, you gonna need a jailbreak. but thats why you're on mod mmi
second of all you're gonna need a camera connection kit (fairly expensive for what you get, but doable)
instead of usb drives you're gonna want to have a 16gb sd, because the usb connection kit fails
than you want to download the godly XBMC app trough cydia(need to add a source). with xbmc you can browse through all your ipad's lcations, and when you plugin the connection kit xbmc can come there and you can add it as a source for your movies so that everytime you plugin your sd card its easely accable.
hopefully that cleared it all up for you.
its nice if you're going on a long vacations and want to take your shows with you.
XBMC furthermore plays mkv's buttersmooth so no converting for you

Thanks a lot brother. I grabbed the connection kit tonight. What source are you replying to? I already have ifile if that's the same type of file browser.
Nevermind. Grabbed that app and realize its a lot more than ifile. Thanks for the info. You mentioned a 16 gb sd card before , can I not go larger? Or will it only recognize something up to that size?

16 gig was just what i use, but with some googling you can probs find the exact size it goes up to.
and helping out is always good, one more XBMC user is always good
