    I tried a few solutions and with sum i had really bad expiriences. The driver of the additiona screen seems in some cases to trigger a normaly not really triggered bug. When this is triggered the Drag and Drop stoppes working and the only solution is reinstall MacOSX because the driver companies have NO CLUE how to undo that problem.

    I ended up using Screenrecycler on my Mac and connect with one of the available VNC clients from the iPad. Works great!!!
