    Eventually got to work with Nikon D3200

    • Written by from Lesmahagow

    After many attempts to connect my Nikon D3200 to my iPad Air via this cable I finally found that if you go to Camera Settings - Playback Folder - and change setting to "All" instead of thew defualt "Current" does the trick....worked for me

    Will not work with GoPro 3+

    • Written by from Riverview

    While connected to an iPad this adapter will power A USB flash drive... However it will not work with a powered GoPro 3+... It reports the accessory uses too much power. Similarly a Micro SD to USB adapter will not work. An unfortunate waste.

    It works

    • Written by from East Ilsley

    On first connecting my Sony Cybershot I had the same message as others. I went into the camera settings and turned off 'power from USB', which fixed the problem. I suspect this will be the case with most rechargeable cameras. I agree with the comments about memory sticks but that is not what I bought it for.

    "Requires Too Much Power" Error

    • Written by from SHORELINE

    This doesn't work. When I connect my camera (iPhone 6) I get an error that it requires too much power. Don't buy this.

    When I connect my camera and ipad I get the error message 'connected device uses too much power' even though my camera is powered by a fully charged battery. Not fit for purpose.

    It works great.

    I use it very often and for a very long time. It works with my iPad 4 and iPad Air 2(it seems works only on iPad,not iPhone),and I can use it connect to my camera (need to turn on)and even my iPhone.

    Does Not Work

    • Written by from Mammoth Lakes

    I received my new Ipad Air 2, including Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. Adpater is useless as it does not recognize my camera. I had to download photos via my old MacBook onto iPhoto. I purchased this adapter to avoid doiing that. From reading this appears to be an issue with 8.1 opertating system.

    Do not buy!

    • Written by from Nr. Nuneaton

    I bought this, was told it would work with all cameras, but quickly discovered it didn't work with any of mine! Every time it has come up with message 'this requires too much power'. I don't believe Apple should still be selling this product.

    Totally useless

    • Written by from Walton on Thames

    Only gave one star because I can't give zero. Have followed and re- followed instructions, tried all the hints and tips and still NOTHING. A complete waste of £25. Very frustrating and disappointing.

    Awesome for GarageBand

    • Written by from Calgary

    I haven't used this for cameras but I used it to record my guitar in GarageBand. I have a Peavey Vypyr 75 watt amp with a USB output for recording. I hooked the amp up to my iPad mini via the Lightning to USB adapter and it worked flawlessly!

    Works easily, perfectly.

    • Written by from Kingsley

    I just wanted a way of transferring images from a SLRD camera to an iPad - a camera with an SD card too large to fit the current card readers (and cameras). It worked perfectly. Far cheaper than buying a new SLR camera (which I don't currently use much anyway, preferring a compact camera or even the iPad for everyday use, just for the very special shots - such as wide angle ones of rainbows)

    SOOOO frustrating...

    • Written by from Vici

    This is a very misleading product.
    I bought it thinking that I could scan pictures to a flash drive, connect them to my IPad Air, and go to work creating my slideshow. Ooohhhh how wrong I was!
    IN THE BOOK that comes with this adapter, it says that it is compatible with "mass storage class devices". Apple needs to specify that this WILL NOT work without buying yet another product.
    I feel like if I am using an APPLE PRODUCT it should work with another APPLE PRODUCT. All of my devices are Apple products and up to this point I have been happy with them! But I am very upset with Apple.

    Does not work with my GoPro and does not work with my sd card reader.
    A waste of money and incredible that apple is selling stuff which does not flawlessly work with their products.
    Very dissapointing!

    Faultless

    • Written by from Swindon

    I bought this product to go with my nikon d3300. At first I read a couple of reviews and they said they weren't that good. So I thought to play it safe I would get the lightning to SD card reader. When I got to the shop they were out of SD cards ones. So I took a chance and bought this. I am glad I did. This bit of handy kit transfers photos in 2 seconds I find it amazing.
    The only problem with it I think is that you can't transfer videos.

    Cool idea, needs more uses

    • Written by from newburgh

    I bought this adapter thinking that I could use it with my iPhone 5s, but unfortunately cameras are not supported on any iPhone model. However, I was able to use it to plug the Apogee Jam guitar adapter into my iPhone and use it to record my guitar with Garage Band which was very surprising. Other than that, I haven't found much use for it so I'll probably return it.

    A must have device for iPad owners.

    • Written by from Tel aviv

    This product really works, specially after I found a solution for those flash drives not being accepted on the iPad because of their format type or high electric power demands. At first I had some problems connecting some of my flash drives to my iPad mini 2 retina IOS 7, using the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter, but then I found the solution. The flash drive has to formatted in one of the following formats: FAT32 , exFAT , HFS+. If your flash drive isn't recognized by the iPad, and it is FAT32, you have to format it to FAT32 using a special free tool called "USB Disk Storage Format Tool 1.0 Hiren". Just Google for it. I had a Sandisk 32gb FAT32 formatted flash drive, and the iPad didn't accept it, until I reformatted it to FAT32 with this tool. When I previously tried to format this flash drive with Windows 7 built in format tool to FAT32, the iPad didn't recognize the drive. Same goes for my Sandisk 8gb and 4gb flash drive. Note that FAT32 enables a max 4gb per single file size. Also note that for some large drives, you have to wait about 20 seconds until the device is being recognized, so be patient.
    Regarding to the “Cannot Use Device: The connected USB device requires too much power.” I found that if the flash drive is connected to a simple USB hub, it solves the problem for some flash drives, even if the hub is not externally powered!!! Same goes for flash card readers: Most didn't work until plugged in thru the USB HUB.
    Regarding the maximum drive size, note, that you can also connect a 500gb (!!) externally powered 2.5" hard drive ( That has two male USB connectors coming from it, one for power and one for data ), format it to FAT32 using 'MiniAide FAT32 Formatter' or to HFS+ using GParted on linux.
    I also managed to connect my PC keyboard to the USB. Worked great.
    Note: This kit is for iPads. It will not work on iPhones.
    Note: Use a genuine camera connection kit, as the non genuine kit I bought worked only for few of my flash drives, and the genuine kit worked for almost all my devices!
