Puppy pads are about as counter-productive as you get with potty training. The general school of thought with crate training is to use the fact that they generally won't go where they sleep to your advantage. By using a crate that is only big enough for them to stand and lay down in, you teach them to hold it until they go outside. They sell dividers for big crates that are really useful for this
