    Perhaps you have confused Lightning and Thunderbolt.
    The iPad 4th gen has the former, this is the latter, for connecting FireWire devices (Video cameras, hard drives etc to Macs)

    You need this instead: "Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader" it will read the card without the need for the FW adapter.
