    Did not work at all!

    • Written by from Westfield

    Bought this tody to download vca pics to my ipad2. Tried to connect camera first, draws too much power, OK I'll use the card reader, no luck there either. Could not read. This is a sans disk micro with an adapter. So very frustrated and disappointed with this product. Back to the apple store tomorrow with the connection kit and my camera, a waste of my time. I am counting on them to make this right. I had to put 1 star in to submit review, it should be a big fat 0.

    Transfers photos off my camera

    • Written by from Queen City Park

    This kit works like a charm to transfer pictures off my camera using the SD card, however if the folder's name was changed or I tried to transfer a folder from my computer, I couldn't get the device to recognize the files. Now I know to transfer pictures before naming the folders so that shouldn't be an issue. I haven't tried the USB port yet. I hope a future software update will let me transfer any file from SD card to IPad but it will do for now.

    works

    • Written by from Orinda

    I used the SD card reader part to import RAW photos from my olympus camera. Worked instantly and the ipad3 had no trouble displaying the RAW photos, which I found pleasantly surprising. The screen shows the photos better than my computer because it is so hi-res.

    Needs to be worked on (combo with ipad)

    • Written by from Wuppertal

    Purchased CCK for my holiday trip. Shot hundreds of photos each day and used Ipad for rewiev/backup. First problem:

    - when you import the size of the thumbnail is waaay too small. Had to import everything from the SD card

    Now, after a week of photoshooting got to organize stuff. So I created the 'BestOf' album and copied good stuff there. Now the second big problem emerged:

    - There is no usable way to bunch-delete photos. It is really annoying having to select each pic separately. And no, I dont have a Mac/Pc/whatever with me - that is why I took Ipad!

    And then:

    - You cannot delete whole album either
    - when you delete a picture which is in another album, there is no way of telling which album(s) was ment. If picture is deleted, it disappears everywhere. This makes the idea of an album kind of useless.

    Summary: hardware works, software is useless.. The combination of Ipad+ CCK is not practical.

    For my next big holiday I will take a bunch of SD card and organize my photos when I am back home. I will definately save a lot of time.

    Only worked once!

    • Written by from Oviedo

    Bought the iPad3 specifically for loading my vacation photos through the SD card adapter so I wouldn't have to bring my laptop along. It only worked the first time I put a card in. I tried 6 different SD cards to see if the cards may have been the problem. Still nothing. It just doesn't get recognized. Now I have to make a trip to the Apple store, bringing my cards and computer with me, to see if they can figure out whats going on. What a pain!!! Seems others are having no issues. Wish that were me!

    Performed as advertised.

    • Written by from Bourbon

    Just purchased for Nikon coolpix S8000. Hooked it up using USB cable. Immediately downloaded around 30 pictures. Am looking forward to trip to Italy in June without having to lug around laptop. $29 price seems about right.

Won't work with connecting the camera, any of the cameras I have, won't work with connecting a usb thumb drive!, won't work connecting a external usb card reader either! Any one have a solution?

    Works perfectly with iPad3!

    • Written by from Towson

    Despite the somewhat mixed reviews here, I purchased one of these and it was pleased to find that it works just fine and dandy with my iPad3. First I connected the USB piece and connected my digicam - and boom - hundreds of pics came right through. I was impressed at the speed given the large image files I had. Then I tried again with an SD card, and boom again - the pics came flying through. This is uber-easy to use and it does what its advertised to do. I haven't tried any wacky uses or connecting other non-camera devices through the USB - I got it to load images - and that is exactly what it does, pure and simple.

    Needs iOS5.1 to work for MP4

    • Written by from Hayward

    Works great. Only thing is that I had to update my iPad to iOS 5.1 for it to read the MP4 files on my GoPro2.

    Doesn't import video

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I paid $45 for this piece of junk and it won't import videos. Thank you Apple for misrepresenting its capability.

    I'm now in Europe and completely knackered because it is pointless now to shoot videos.

    I wish I didn't love my stupid iPad

    • Written by from phoenix

    The camera connect kit works with my camera. But the memory card reader is WEAK! My pictures happen to be in the dcim folder on my sd card... I moved them there myself and verified on my computer. However the ipad2 still says no photos on the memory card 16gb. Photos were taken in a droid razr maxx. (maybe the file names are wrong for Apple or something) They are .jpg Who cares though...
    Why the heck cant I just use the memory card reader as a memory card reader and move files photos and whatever I want back and forth from my ipad?

    Do any Apple products "support this device"?!?!?

    • Written by from San Antonio

    Neither my iPod, nor my iPad support the SD card reader or the USB reader. What gives Apple? Why would you sell something like this?

    explain this apple

    • Written by from vancouver

    so i bought this connector kit for a trip to the tropics and it worked fine by transferring photos from my cannon s95 with the SD card reader just plugged into my ipad3 and the upload took about a minute for about 300 pics.. pics look awesome on the new ipad with the resolution and all. So now i want those same pics on to my wife's macbook air but wait a minute some how i cant transfer any pics from ipad to mac ????? there are all these wireless ways and methods to do this but come on this should be basic technology for anyone using a computer no matter what brand??? so now i tried the connector that uses a USB connector ok lets plug it into the ipad and upload those pics on to my 4gb USB...... OH my usb is to much power for my ipad ???????? the point of this adapter ??? to transfer the pictures that were on my camera back to my camera?? I read reviews that this use to actually work but apple put a stop to it.. shame on you apple

    RAW Files, No Problem

    • Written by from Wentzville

    I bought this with reservation as the definition didn't clearly state how raw files were handled. CR2 (Canon RAW) images are imported extremely fast from my DSLR; And display immediately when complete. When editing in iPhoto, there is no need to convert to jpg; you edit the RAW file and then can email (at which time it is converted to jpg automagically).
    I would recommend this to any pro photographer who wants to shoot, then display at weddings or at family photo shoots.
    I love this product!!

    Doesn't work with SDXC cards

    • Written by from Anchorage

    I really only wanted the SD card reader to read photos and only after the fact of buying this Kit do I find out that SDXC cards are not supported, This may not be Apple's fault, but I find it to be very frustrating, I bought the SDXC card because it is 64 gig, enough for HD video files on my camera for vacation, now I have to take my laptop to upload from my camera. Just a word of caution to anyone in my situation. Make sure you are not using an SDXC card as this product will not work.

    It doesn't "just work"

    • Written by from Salem

    I purchased the CCK to import photos. Needless to say after over 4 hours of researching why it won't work, I'm giving up and returning it. I've tried 4 different brands/sizes of SD cards to no success. They have all been formatted correctly. They all have the correct DCIM root folder with 8 figure names plus extension .jpg . The iPad 2 recognizes the reader. Put any of the cards in the slot... nothing. It doesn't just work. I've been a Mac fanatic since the 80s, but since the iOS reign, I must say that no, Mr. Jobs' ghost, it doesn't 'just work'.
