    Not Worth a Star

    • Written by from BARROW-IN-FURNESS

    Absolute garbage. Doesn't recognise SD card is there. Not managed to transfer a single picture. Will have to connect camera to MacBook. Total waste of money. Happens too often. I'm done with Apple, and will switch back to PC when I next change. Didn't used to mind the extra cost associated with Apple when the quality was here, but it's not anymore. Take a look at half the rubbish on AppStore as well. Quality control has been reduced to zero.

    Apple greed!

    • Written by from Park Orchards

    I warned my wife not to buy Apple ipad 4 for some $800 AUD, and when she wanted to use it, I found it totally difficult and dumb to use. Even writing this review, for example, there is no back arrow key to correct more than the last keystroke, without destroying all text to that point. Dumb, dumb, dumb. Then we went on holidays and, being used to Windows OS, thought we could upload our photos via card reader into the eye pad and view the photos. Dumb, dumb dumb. Couldn't even recognise the cable.Why? Some idiot at Apple decided, it wouldn't be good to make the Ipad have additional memory just by plugging in a 64gig card, as this would make the extra $300 you spend to get a 64 gig ipad totally unnecessary. Dumb, dumb and greedy greedy greedy. I wish Apple would just go broke and fade away. I swear I will never, never buy anything Apple again.

    Does Not Work - Zero Stars

    • Written by from Rohnert Park

    Tried to use with Ipad Mini and nothing happens. I have read every trick and Does Not Work. SD HC 8GB. Does Not Work. Apple has not supplied one answer to this on any website. Waste of money and now I can't use Ipad Mini for trip to France. I can't chance it.

    no satisfaction

    • Written by from Lindell Beach

    My Lightning SD card reader was a waste of money. It doesn't trigger my iPad to open the photo program and so I cannot transfer photos into the iPad. Doesn't work with my 8, 16, or 32 G cards. VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS PRODUCT

    Can't Get It To Work

    • Written by from St. Albert

    I downloaded photos from my Windows PC to a SD card. I then tried to transfer from the SD card using the Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader to my iPad Air. It recognized that I had connected the cable but it couldn't read or see the photos on the SD card. I looked at some of the reviews here to see if I was doing something wrong. The initial card I tried was 32 GB; didn't work. I tried an 8GB card; didn't work. I checked the file names on the 8GB card and all complied to the one suggestion below; didn't work.
    I went to my Apple dealer where I bought the iPad and this cable reader and their response was that the card had been formatted by my PC and that's why the iPad couldn't read it. They suggested that I re-format the card in my camera and then try it again. I did; it didn't work.

    From the other reviews I've read here, success is certainly not consistent (hit or miss) so I would have to say that the Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader is not a good product. Unless someone can provide a solution that is guaranteed to work, then I would recommend not buying.

    Does not work...

    • Written by from Livonia

    I've tried to use it but no matter how many "hints" I read about it's just as useful as a dead fish. Plug it in they say... I did and it does nothing. Restart your iPad they say... I did and it still does nothing. Try different cards... I did and nothing. Don't waste your money like I did unless you like stuff that does nothing.

    Does not work with iPad Air

    • Written by from Hampstead

    I bought this device in an Apple store. I requested a SD card adapter that works with the iPad Air. It does not work. I'm using a 16GB SD card. When plugged in, there is no action on the device. No message or attempt to show any of the pictures. Do not buy this device if you try to load pictures to an iPad Air.

    It's going back

    • Written by from Wellington

    Exeter Apple Store today, bought Lightening to SD Card Reader - helpful assistant who assured us all we had to do was insert SD card into Card Reader into mini ipad and select photos we wanted to import. Followed instructions exactly. Zilch. Nothing. Clicked Photo icon, just got the range of photos that was already there.

    It’s going back. Had to give it one star to write this review - otherwise it be zero.

    Waste of money

    • Written by from Droitwich

    Simply doesn't work, even when following all the instructions by Apple, it plugs in, is recognised, but not a single SD card will it read, and I've tried by Nikon camera's, Cannon cameras and Canon video camera, all with four different types of SD card. I've turned the iPad on and then off again, I've even done a little dance to the gods of all things electronic.

    What a disappointment.

    Does not work

    Have an Ipad Air and it doesn't work. Tried several different cards. The album page will pop up, but doesn't see the sd card. Apple should include a slot for a card in all their tablets.

    Importing into iMac from iPhone

    • Written by from EDITHVALE

    So does one assume that iPhone writes the correct folders when exporting via the SD card so that when inserted into an iMac it sees it as a camera and transfers the data into iTunes. Why is there not a lead that goes Lightning connector to Lightning Connector that cuts out the SD stage. DUMB

    Another piece of Apple Junk

    • Written by from Springfield

    Got an Iphone 5 and have hated it ever since I got it. photos don't sync well without a lot of time and effort. Can't get my calendars to sync with my Iphone and Ipad using icloud. My daughter purchased a lightning to sd Card reader for me to use with my phone and now I find out it only works with the Ipad. I have been using a computer since 1982 and have done masters level work in Computer science. I despise the day I let my daughter convince me I should go with an Iphone and Ipad. Can hardly wait for my contract to be up so I can get an android. Wish I could give minus stars

    Not compatible with iPhones

    • Written by from london

    Bought this from the Apple Store today. Get home to try it with my iPhone and it's not compatible.

    Fair enough, I'm looking to buy an iPad Air anyway, but at least you could say on the packaging that it's only for iPad? Or your "Genius" staff could of let me know? Not that it would work with the iPad Air by the sounds of the other reviews on here...

    I can't help feel like Apple is losing touch with things like this, their devices cost a lot of money, they should pretty much be able to deal with whatever will plug into them.

    Tried using this to read a 64GB card in my 128 GB 4th generation iPad. It won't work. The cable to download from the camera doesn't work either. Both are fine with 32 GB cards, just not with the 64GB.

    Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader

    • Written by from EDINBURGH

    Complete waste of money. This device fails to read any of my SD cards on either of my iPads which are both retina display. I will be sending it back to Apple for a refund. Wish I'd read some of these reviews before purchasing as it appears it doesn't work for most people. Come on Apple- get this sorted .... Or at the very least stop selling a device that clearly has issues! It deserves NO stars!
