    Not enough power... even for a thumb drive!

    • Written by from long Beach

    Oh come on Apple.... fix this problem for the new iPad! Only thing works is SD card but I use Compact Flash! 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? A third party adapter??

    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'.

    Worked Once & Nothing After! DO NOT BOTHER!

    • Written by from Santee

    I was able to transfer 150 photos to my iPad3 using my 16GB SD Card from my Nikon D90. Worked like a dream ONCE!

    BUT...Ever since, the iPad will only read 5 photos out of 50 new photos! All are JPEGs just as before! All are from the same camera & same SD Card!

    I have erased & re-formatted the SD Card and reloaded the Photos...SAME RESULT!

    I have NEVER had this much BS factor with any other apple device!
    Run Fast - Run Far - From this device!

    PS the USB connector is functionally USELESS!

    Worked great with latest iPad (iPad 3) for us

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    Took hundreds of photos on our vacation and wanted to back up the photos from the SD card used in the camera. We didn't bring our laptops/Macbooks, only iPads. Found an Apple store and they hooked us up. I'd seen this Camera Connection kit but didn't know what it did. It read our Kingston SD card and we were able to load all of our photos onto the new iPad easily, no issues. On the 2nd use it asked if we wanted to skip the duplicates, so it only imported the new photos. So I suspect the reviews that say it doesn't work are perhaps SD card issues since it worked like a champ with our iPad , latest generation. The other adapter in the kit has a USB connection. So, if you have SD issues or don't want to remove it from the camera, use the USB cable from your camera to the adapter that plugs into the iPad. So great, when got home, plugged the iPad into the big screen TV and showed everyone out photos...easy peezy.

    USB adapter works great with iPad 3

    • Written by from Moffat

    Bought it and connected my digital camera to my iPad 3. Could not be more simple to download the pictures and videos from the camera. Software in iPad handles the transfer well. Does the job.

    Camera -SD Card connectors

    • Written by from Cranberry Township

    I have about 500 pictures I wanted to upload using the SD card connector.
    My iPad only reads 2, not the smallest not the largest.
    I have no clue why does not read the others. All are JPG but some were edited with Adobe
    I have change the files to an older SD after reading the comments that does not work with the newer ones. Same results.
    Would it be that the Adobe edit affected them and if so can something be done?
