    so far it will not read my 16gig flash drive. It says to much power is needed. I wonder if an external hard drive with it's own power source will work. If anybody has one, try it and let us know.

  • I tried to connect my SanDisk 8GB Cruzer thumb drive to my iPhone 6, but I got this error message:
    "! Cannot Use Device Cruzer: The connected connected device requires too much power."

    I haven't tried this specific combo with an iPad, but in my experiments the iPad will power some devices that my iPhone won't. I can get some power-hungry devices to work with my iPhone by putting a powered USB hub between the device and this adapter.
