Welcome to Mac-Forums..
You cannot connect an external HD to any iOS device. One way around this is to get a HD like Seagates GoFlex
external HDDs that will work as a streaming server for you.
Were you also planning on taking a computer along with you? If not, where does the SD transfer come into play here since a iPad Mini can't talk to a SD card either?
