    lightning to 30-pin adapter (MD824ZM/A)

    • Written by from zurich

    I bought this adapter (lightning to 30-pin adapter (MD824ZM/A)) to connect my iphone 6 on a cable iphone 4. I would also connect it in my stereo. But it does not work!

    When I connect I get the message: "This accessory is not compatible with this device"

    What should I do?

    30 pin to hdmi not recognised

    • Written by from Orlando

    I bought this thinking that it would work with all of my 30 pin connectors. NOT SO! Can charge when I connect it to my iPad 30 pin cable but if I connect it to the the Apple 30 pin to hdmi adaptor it does not work. It says "this accessory not supported by this iPhone"

    Really disappointing since it's Apple accessories and not 3rd party. I was hoping that I would not have to buy a separate lightning to hdmi adapter but it seems I have to.

    Was $39.99 now $48...
    This has got to be a joke. Probably cost 30c from china to make.
    Dont understand why you would change the port and not provide an adapter in the box of new products.
    Apple, this is a rort

    Works with SONY RDP-M5iP and Mophie juice pack boost

    • Written by from Littleton

    I switched over from iPhone 4 to iPhone 6. Had a SONY speaker dock and a Mophie battery, both with 30-pin connectors. This adapter does work with both - to play music on my SONY speaker dock from the iPhone 6, and to use the Mophie to charge the iPhone 6.
    I chose this one instead of the adapter without any cable, to prevent torqueing the speaker dock when attaching the iPhone. That seemed to be the issue SONY had with using any adapters with their merchandise.

    Low quality product

    • Written by from Calgary

    This adapter started deteriorating about 2 months after purchase. It has now completely stopped working. This is from normal use. I expected higher quality for the price.

    Works with bose dock

    • Written by from Gravesend

    Just updated from iPod touch 2 to iPod touch 5 & required something so I could still use the iPod dock with my Bose equipment. This works perfectly, my iPod seemed to charge whilst connected & the cable length was fine. It is doing so far all I ask of it.

    Not for iPhone 6!

    • Written by from ASHEBORO

    "Trust this Computer" will reappear regardless of phone resets. "This accessory may not be supported on this device" pops after what looks like it is working when first attached, should read "is not supported". A very poor product that worked fine on the iphone 5. Spend your $40 at your own risk.

    Works Wonderfully

    • Written by from Leslie Vale

    I upgraded to an iPhone 5 and unfortunately, my iPod dock became redundant because of the different connectors. Thankfully, this adapter let me charge my iPhone and use the music controls on my dock. Only reason I gave it 4 stars was the price tag.

    Works Like A Charm

    • Written by from BOULDER

    After having read that the square/block converter will probably not be able to plug into my iPhone 6 with a case on (or at least a case that does not have an exposed base), I decided to go with this cable for my car's iPod connection, a Vais SL2i.

    Since only 0.2m long, doesn't add a lot of length to my existing cable. And it works! Still have full steering wheel control of volume, track & playlist selection. Track & playlist names display on the stereo's LCD. And my third-party streaming radio app works as well.

    I now have a adapter that will work with any Lightning equipped device, no matter the case on the device.

    Too expensive

    • Written by from Matteson

    I bought this cable for my IPad Air in January 2014. It is now September 2014 and the cable is already frayed and worn. For $40, you would think Apple could make this cable more durable. Apple makes great products, but when you need parts, it's highway robbery. I tried buying a cable that was supposedly approved by Apple for my IPad, however, it didn't work properly. Needless to say, I had to rely on genuine Apple products. I gave this product two stars because it didn't last a good year.

    Awesome

    It's a great product. It helped me use chargers I bought for my old iPhone on my new 5c. It was a little pricy, but totally worth it!

    Works in Automobiles.

    • Written by from Manahawkin

    The cable has restored full functionality for both my iPhone 5s and 5c in our Mercedes. The cars still have the 30 pin connectors. Audio passes through, and the phones charge. Knocked one star off for price.

    Stopped Working

    • Written by from Linden

    I have been using the long lightning to 30-pin adapter (0.2m) to connect to my Belkin 30-pin Tune-cast in my car. I also use a lightning to usb adapter to charge my iPhone in my car. The lightning to 30-pin adapter (0.2m) shows signs of green oxidation on the lightning end and has stopped working. The lightning to usb adapter in my car works great and shows no sign of green oxidation. My wife uses a short lightning to 30-pin adapter and has also shown no signs of green oxidation. Not sure if the materials or quality of manufacturing are different between different adapter lines or date of manufacturing?

    PERFECT PRODUCT!

    • Written by from Miami

    I bought this adapter because mi Kia Forte 30 pin cable won't work on my 5s obviously. I was worried the adapter would not support the audio like it did with my iphone 4. It worked perfectly with the factory cable the Kia has, like it was with my previous iphone.

    My Audi iPod adapter won't recognize this adapter! Overprice and not work!

    • Written by from Bethlehem

    I had the smaller type adapter since I got my iPhone 5 around two yeas ago. That adapter works with my car but the design is terrible. I finally get around and decide to buy this one, guest what, it only charge but not working, no control from my RNS-E. So 2 stars for not fully functioning.

    Sorta works

    • Written by from Richfield

    I bought this to use with 30 pin cables I already have to connect a iPad mini. I have the Apple iPad mini Smart Case and I have to remove the iPad mini from the case in order to use this adapter The plug casing is too large to go into the case. Other cables I have are fine, the USB to Lightning cable that came with the iPad mini and the SD card reader with lightning, both work with the case. The cable needs to be re-designed with a smaller lighting connector and Apple needs to make it right with those that wish to exchange for the correct cable. Apple stuff should be compatible with other Apple stuff.

    Was a lil worried after the reviews, but it works fine for me me...

    • Written by from The Woodlands

    Primary reason I bought this was to see if the iPad camera connection kit I just picked up last fall for my iPad 3 would work on my iPad mini w/retina I just bought---any other uses were just icing on the cake. I have a Nikon D5200 and both adapters in the kit (the SD card reader and USB adapter) work just fine---USB connection has issues if the battery on the camera itself is running low but otherwise works great.

    Next, got down to trying it on everything else in the house…late model Samsung home theater receiver w/iPod dock (bought it waaay back when the iPod w/video first came out), and my Sony Dream Machine clock radio w/docking station I bought 3-4 yrs ago. Both the iPad mini AND my iPhone 5s work great on these "senior" devices. Aaaaaalmost bought the version of this adapter that's just the connector without the cable extension---glad I didn't so I could ensure everything had room to plug in and seat correctly. Not as slick-looking, but in this case I preferred function & versatility over form.

    My car has Bluetooth and USB interfaces to connect music devices rather than an iPod-specific connection, so had no chance to try this cable there. Guess I can try it with rental cars when I travel but with all the alternate ways you can connect iPods/Phones to car stereos, this wasn't a big personal concern of mine.

    This works in my 07 VW golf to convert my iPod connector in my arm rest to play music via my radio. I have an iPod gen 5. Is expensive but it is just the right size for my car.

    What are you doing Apple?

    • Written by from Tucson

    I have one of these and the longer extension as well, also my oem cable that came with my phone. Since the last update none of them work in my cars, pc's, or docks. I can only charge my iphone 5s now with it plugged into the wall. Was this done just to prevent the use of aftermarket cables? And now we all suffer even if we paid high retail cost for nothing! My entire family has iphones and so do all of my employees and everyone is having the same issue. My upgrades are here and the iPhone was on the list and has been for many years. We will now be looking at other devices, tired of the games.I searched and found that this is a epidemic.
