    Got as present and none of my 3 cameras are compatible. Worse, the ipad doesn't recognize the sd cards when plugged in directly.

    Cleared my memory card

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Today my friends and I took a lot of videos and cameras since I just got my Nikon D3100 for Christmas and when my friend plugged my memory card into the adapter, it deleted everything off of my memory card.

    Not working

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    I bought this to use with my iPad and it never worked. For some reason it does not read any USB camera connection nor the memory stick.
    Worse thing I have ever bought and I am an apple fan and love all the devices I have.

    Usb plug doesnt work with my camera. Olympus stylus tough. No way to know before you buy if it will work with your camera or not....apple put out a list of campatible cameras so we dont waste our money!

    USB Memory sticks NOT working

    • Written by from ROCHESTER

    I wanted to use this to transfer photos using memory sticks. Unfortunately NONE of my high capacity (over 2GB) USB sticks will work with this with the latest software update. This is an aggravating and ridiculous limitation. I CAN manage the battery life on my iPad. I do understand having a limit - e.g. no hard drives but believe the limit is far too low because most devices won't work with this.
    Until this problem I was thrilled with my iPad. Now I'm beginning to see Apple as unnecessarily limiting the uses of this, otherwise fantastic, device.

    Doesn't work with card reader

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I have 2 different card readers that I tried with this accessory. One gave me an error message that said the card reader needed too much power, but it wasn't connected to any power and neither was the iPad.

    The other card reader worked until I brought it on vacation to New Zealand but now gives the same error message. This is frustrating since it is a major reason I bought the iPad. To top it off there doesn't seem to be online help for this.

    Not working!!

    • Written by from Rosedale

    I have both iPad & iPad2 in my house and got the same error message on both saying that i cannot use this accessory as it consumes too much power. The funny thing is that I actually bought 2 kits thinking it was a smart move and got them delivered to the middle east... Waste of money!! Is there any way to work around the problem?

    bad move apple!

    • Written by from Ogden

    Picked this up to upload pictures to my ipad and when I connected it with the usb adapter, it came up with the message that it required too much power... I called the apple store before I bought this and asked specifically if there were any known problems with this adapter and was guaranteed that it would work... all I had to do was plug it in and it would upload my pictures. I am not happy with this and will be returning it to apple. What is frustrating is that I called up the apple store before I bought this and was given incorrect information. Why does apple even sell this when they know it won't work... bad move apple... very bad move!!

    Camera kit/ Sony Cyber-shot

    • Written by from Middletown

    Purchased IPad 32g Wifi along with the camera kit. The IPad rocks, camera kit does not!
    Sony uses their stick for the memory card, so I connected the camera to the IPad with the USB adapter, message comes up on the IPad "device not supported".
    My question is.... What camera/ media card does the connector kit work with????

    Why won't the SD card connection kit work?

    • Written by from Swainsboro

    I love my I-PAD 2 in many ways. I have a Nikon D-5100 with an excellent high speed 16 GB SD card. Neither the SD card nor the camera connection works. I have a 64 GB wifi & 3G IPAD-2. The same SD kit works with my daughter's 32 GB IPAD 2. The AV connector works great with my IPAD. I don't think anything is wrong with my connector. When I plug in the SD card kit I notice that the card is recognized in settings, but the transfer screen does not come up. I think this is very poor engineering. I feel I am a slave to the poor engineering in the Itunes setup. Apple, can't you make this right?

    This product doesn't work. I tried it with 5 different cameras and SD cards. Maybe it is my Ipad.

    Doesn't recognize

    • Written by from Fort Lee

    This connection kit doesn't recognize my SD card, neither my camera with USB cable...
    I brought my camera, iPad and connection kit to my trip as I take LOTS of pictures. For the first 3 days of my trip, this connection kit worked OK but after that.... No reaction. I was going to move my pictures from my camera to iPad. NO reaction.
    I waited, waited, and waited for 10 minutes. NO REACTION AT ALL.
    As a result, I had to take less pictures just to save the memory card and my trip has ended.
    I am wondering if I get this exchanged or fixed.

    What a waste

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    Thank You Apple for granting me the privilege of moving photos to my iPad. My android will connect to any computer and act like a portable hard rive. But this...THIS! This will let me move photos only. Wow. What a privilege. Can't move audio files to garage band. Can't move PDF files. Can't move anything but photos. It's genius. Now if it want to move audio files from my handheld recorder to my iPad, I have to go through my laptop. I guess I'll just cut out the middle man and do everything on my laptop. What a waste. Thank you for my $700 Facebook browser.

    unapple !

    • Written by from perth

    Very strange apple!! I have the same problem that lots of others seem to have !
    My Ipad has never recognised either of the adapters,, even from new ! I have tried many different cards and two camera leads, and the best I have ever got was once it told me that the device drew too much power....
    what happened to ' we don't want to ship rubbish products...' this is a very poor product attempting to overcome a distinct oversight in the design of the ipad.

    First apple product I disliked, was not about it, and wished it had worked

    • Written by from Macomb

    Purchased this a a part of my road warriors kit that I felt wound make all the difference in storing my photos on the go and posting them online. Soon found that was not to be the case, as when I wanted to to use either the camera connection or the ad card slot, newer functioned as advertised. I exchanged them thinking it was perhaps a one off, but found the same issue with my next set, and simply returned them soon after. I have an abiding respect for most apple products but this one has not worked out as planned.

    Totally Dissapointed.

    • Written by from Saskatoon

    I tried using these out of the box, on my first gen ipad. Never once did my ipad open the photo app. It would not recognize my 2 Fuji cameras, or Flip video camera, Would not accept images off of a USB flash drive, saying the device "requires too much power", even on a 100% charge. I tried 2 separate SD cards. One got the response "may have corrupted files", and another that was perfectly functional showed no response at all. Unhappy with purchase.

    Failed right out of the package

    • Written by from Ewa Beach

    USB Adapter did not recognize my SD cards UNTIL I moved the SD card's "LOCK" switch to "LOCKED". Only then did iPad display a message: "Card May Be Damaged". Tried it with multiple SD cards.

    CAMERA Adapter displayed this message: "Accessory not available, uses too much power". Huh? The camera battery was fully charged, my iPad was fully charged.

    I'm taking it back to my friendly Apple store in Honolulu.

    Don't spend your money on this!
