    Doesn't work!

    • Written by from Dearborn Heights

    Device not supported when connected to my Canon camera. When connected to my digital memory card reader device says it takes too much time. Was really hoping to use this with my IPad. Not surprised that it doesn't work.

    Error message 'device using too much power'

    • Written by from Weymouth

    I am trying to connect a Sony Memory Stick PRO Duo card reader and the iPad is telling me the device uses too much power. How is this possible... Returning the device today since connecting other devices is not possible either.

    Does not work with Canon Rebel XT

    • Written by from Hamburg

    The Camera Connection Kit does not work with my Canon Rebel XT. Received error message: This USB Device is not supported. Really?! Rather useless product if it does not work with a very common camera type. Cannot use SD adapter, as Canon uses CF card format. Wish I read the product reviews before buying.

    Accessory Not Compatible

    • Written by from Camarillo

    So much for ease of use. Not compatible with my iPhone 4S or the iPad third generation. I'd give it a zero rating if it were possible.

    USB A DUD!!!

    • Written by from Sugarloaf

    Can't work with a Canon 5D Camera. The iPad iOS 5 (current system) has "NO" software support. It would be nice if Apple would provide a camera list of camera's that it does work with. The first failure of an Apple product since 1987 for me. They should just sell the SD Connector only. Since USB is not supported.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Duluth

    Was so excited that the kit came in time for me to use on a trip to the Minnesota Zoo.

    Got into the car after a day of picture-taking, plugged it into my iPad2, plugged in the SD reader and my card ... nothing.

    Wiggled and unplugged and replugged and the only sign my iPad was even reading it was once when a brief message popped up announcing that "this accessory wasn't compatible with my device." The rest of the time, the iPad didn't even read/acknowledge it was plugged in.

    I hope (?!) this is just a case of one defective product and not that it doesn't work at all ... as it is, returning something is always a big hassle and childishly, I am really disappointed.

    Ipad Camera Connection Kit

    • Written by from GRAHAM

    Purchased one from Apple store just a few days ago. Took it back the next day. I have an Ipad 3 and when I connected my HP camera (nothing fancy and not a new camera) to the camera kit, message said, usb device did not have enough power. So for me it was useless. Might be a good idea if the customer could know in advance, that not all cameras will work using the Connection Kit.

    The USB connector doesn't work

    • Written by from Toronto

    with most cameras if they are what apple people call 'consumer' cameras, i.e. most cameras unless you have digital SLRs. The connector works with the memory card within camera but have to take out card to insert which defeats purpose of being able to directly connect camera to iPad. Basically, loser connection and I feel the lable of product 'Camera Connection Kit" and user guide included is misleading.

    Useless.

    • Written by from Auburn

    The USB connector doesn't support card readers that must draw power from the device, and you can't plug your iPad in because the connector is plugged in where you connect your power cable. Apple, it's ludicrous not to have a USB port on the iPad.

    The SD card connector will not recognize images that are not 8 characters long and in a labeled DCIM folder, which means SD cards from cell phones and other devices will not be supported, unless you reformat the card on a laptop first.

    These are expensive accessories with extremely limited use. Don't buy until you know if they'll perform the functions you require.

    Apple camera connection kit

    • Written by from Pine town

    So I too have fallen victim to blindly buying an Apple product on the assumption that it would without question function as intended but instead I get an unwelcome error message about not having enough power when I try to use this device. In short this kit is a uselss waste of money!

    Is there anything this kit does work on or any way to get around this problem? Please help!

    doesn't plug in fully to iPad - doesn't work

    • Written by from Campbell

    Crud - leaving for a big trip tomorrow. thought I'd bring iPad to connect to friends, upload photos, etc. Bought this kit. It does not plug securely into iPad (very loose) and therefore, no connection. How else do upload photos??!!

    Does't work!

    • Written by from CARDIFF

    Failed at first hurdle! Plugged the USB cable from my Leica D-Lux4 into my new iPad3 tWhich was faulty as well and ive just had it replaced at the Apple Shop!) my camera says chose Pictbridge or PC, it recognises the PC option and then informes me there are no photos to import...yet if I unplug everything, plug in the SD card reader plug and then insert the 2GB SD card from the same camera it immediately recognises it and lists all the pics on it! Odd! I had high hope for this kit, I'm hoping it doesn't let me down when I try it for the other main reason I bought the kit for, to connect it to a MIDI keyboard, don't feel confident, will update review again when I've had a go. May try it on my old iPad2, just for fun....I'm not holding my breath...my former confidence in Apple products is now shaky!!! Should have read these reviews first, far too many one star reviews!

    No support for SDXC SD Cards

    • Written by from Flushing

    No support SDXC SD cards??? Hello??? My Windows XP recognizes 64GB SD card with old memory card reader and latest camera connection kit doesn't? So typical of Apple to overcharge for products that don't even support standard technologies. This is a terrible product - returning back!

    does not work

    • Written by from Chattanooga

    lets face it this product does not work. You have about a 1 in 7 chance that your sd card will read. Just read the reviews, you will see. Apple, what are you doing with this product? why didn't you test it? saddens me you would slap your name on this piece of shat.

    Disappointment - I completely agree with the below by Gary from Fort Worth

    • Written by from Toronto

    I received the kit in the mail. Hooked the USB card reader to my iPad. 3rd generation and received error message this device draws too much power. Tried several different brands of USB keys and still received same error message drawing too much power. This was a total waste of money! If you have to use the adapter with a powered USB hub then that is fine but apple should disclose that the iPad will not power a USB key and you must use a powered USB hub to make the kit work. I have several thousands pictures I wanted to transfer from a USB and now it seems I just wasted my money. Very disappointed. I spefically ordered this kit from apple to avoid cheap knock offs and still received a product that is not useable. This product should be removed from sale on the apple store.
