    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?

    Lets state the obvious...

    • Written by from Halls

    I'm a huge Apple fan, with that said, why don't iPad users have the ability to plug a usb flash storage (thumb drive) into our iPads and transfer files? The only reason I can see is that Apple doesn't want to give up the ability to sell 3 different iPads based on storage size. Come on Apple, please get back to making devices that made your customers completely happy, not just a little happy. For this reason, I will only give 2 stars to this adapter set.

    Doesn't work with my camera

    • Written by from Alameda

    Well, when I say "my" camera, I mean "the camera I use". I shoot weekly videos for a local event, on an HD Canon camcorder. Traditionally, I'd bring the SD card home, pop it into my MacBook Pro, and go to town in iMovie. My main reason for buying the kit was to try doing my video editing on the iPad, but it seems like the format of the videos isn't recognized by the Camera Connection Kit. Big bummer.

    Works fine with my raw photos from the Nikon D80, and of course with my iPhone 4. So that's good. But yeah, I really wish I could get the camcorder's videos to offload onto the iPad 2.

    Raw pictures work too !

    • Written by from DENHAAG

    SD pictures (JPeg for instance) work fine. In addition to that, it fully supports D3000 and RAW files (.NEF). Could preview all pictures on the iPad and sync later with iMac. Wonderful.

    Constrains iPhone photos to 600x600

    • Written by from SAINT LOUIS

    I bought this product to transfer photos from my iPhone to my iPad so that I can edit them on the bigger screen of the iPad. Unfortunately, the transferred iPhone photos are constrained to 600x600 for some reason. I am not sure why this product is doing this. As such, I'm greatly disappointed.

    Don't bother if on IOS 8

    • Written by from Lemont

    I've had and enjoyed using my CCK for some time now, but with IOS 8, Apple has apparently decided that 30 pin accessories are no longer a priority. Both my CCK and HDMI adapter have been rendered useless by the latest updates, which is a darn shame. Perhaps Apple should add IOS compatibility to the page here and not just device compatibility.

    Sd kit doesn't work with ios8

    • Written by from Raleigh

    I loved my sd card connector for my iPad until I upgraded my system to ios8. If Apple has experienced this glitch with previous updates, why not address it before the update comes out??? Please fix ASAP. Some of us do have real cameras. Would give 4 stars, except you don't address this glitch when you know it is likely to happen!!

    No longer recognised by iPad

    • Written by from Sydney

    Can only assume an iOS update has made this item redundant so surprised that this is still available for sale. Our camera hasn't changed but the device is now shown as an unrecognised accessory. Glad we tested before heading away again.

    Not working with my Canon 350D nor my Olympus TG 620...

    • Written by from Barcelona

    If I connect my Canon 350 to my iPad (3rd Gen, iOS 6.1) I got "device not supported".

    If I connect my Olympus TG 620 (purchased today) I got "device uses too much power".

    How comes? Am I doing anything wrong?

    If I connect my iPhone 5, it works.

    If I connect the SD card from my Olympus, it works. Cannot connect the Canon 350 card, as it uses Compact Flash.

    Please Apple fix this thing!

    Wished it worked!!

    • Written by from Melbourne

    One of the best things I used to love about apple products was how simple things just worked. I now have a camera connection kit that used to work on my 3rd gen IPad, but now doesn't because it is not a recognised accessory!!

    Not Happy!

    Works with my Canon Rebel EOS

    • Written by from Chapel Hill

    I read other reviews from people who could not get the camera connection kit to work with their Canon Rebel. Initially I had the same problem: after connecting my camera to the iPad using a Canon USB device and the kit, the message I got was "USB connection not supported," or some such thing. Of course, the other item in the camera connection kit, designed to enable you to download photos directly from the card, does not accommodate the larger card that the Rebel uses. I was ready to return it to the Apple Store when I decided to try removing the card from my camera, plugging it into the card reader I use to download photos onto my iMac, plugging the card reader into the camera connection kit, and...ta-da! It works! So don't take it back until you give this a try. This seems the perfect solution to the problem of backing up and viewing photos while traveling and avoiding the hassle of lugging a laptop everywhere!

    Which cameras work?

    • Written by from San Jose

    I decided to treat myself to an iPad and new camera - a nice portable Nikon, I was assured at the Apple Store that yes this was the kit I needed, then reality struck...I had no luck in getting the iPad to acknowldge the camera and then somehow it did and I was told it consumed too much power...and ???
    Apple should inform us which camera's can work, this is a real shortcoming of the iPad and Apple just seem to want to hide it.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Burbank

    Worked great for the first 2 weeks and than, after we were on a tour and relied on the adapters, both of them stopped working. Very frustrating and disappointing.

    SD memory card interface works great for me

    • Written by from Chandler

    I bought this as a way of quickly sharing images when shooting at a venue. I noticed a social change when sharing via the iPad rather than by squinting at the 3" display on the back of my Nikon D90. Seeing the excitement on folks faces when they see 1024x768 images is selfishly rewarding :-)

    If I had one complaint, it would be 'why are you obliged to purchase both the SD and USB interface if you only want the SD interface?'. For my style of use, I 'never' attach a camera via USB to anything - why waste the camera battery power. I guess if you don't have an SD memory card compatible camera, you'd use the USB adapter, but not me. So I'd like to see consumers given the option of purchasing either the SD or the USB adapter. Heck - I'd even pay $20 for the SD adapter alone, which means Apple would get even more margin...

    The USB connector works with my Canon 5D and the iPhone 3G! Make sure the PC/Printer is set to printer on your menu on your Canon Camera.

    Great Photo Accessory

    Love this accessory for photos. Makes the iPad a perfect photographers companion. connect camera, iPhone or other card readers via USB or use the SD one to read off SD cards. No complaints!

    It works with iPad mini and lightning to 30-pin kit

    • Written by from Alameda

    I used this with my iPad 3 and it worked wonders.
    I got the iPad mini and used it with my Lightening to to 30-pin adapter with both the SD card and USB adapter and it works mostly like a charm. The SD card had no issues, but with the USB cable. I had to get a 6" USB cable to work with my camera. I used to be able to use my 12" and above USB cable with no issues. Now it shows that it is drawing too much power. I also used to be able to use my Sandisk USB thumb drive, but same issue now. Overall it serves its purpose and I don't have to now buy two separate Lightening adapters for $30 a piece! I can use my old 30-pin USB cables with the $30 Lightening to USB adapter and the 30-pin camera kit for $30. I hope they don't remove this option in future software/hardware updates.

    Side note, thank you Apple for finally bringing the Lightening to Micro USB port adapter. But $19... Wish you brought the 30-pin to Micro USB port adapter to the States.

    Better Off With Photo Transfer App

    • Written by from Bedford

    This kit only works with a few of my SD cards and will not work with any USB flash drive or USB card reader. It also limits which photos can be transferred and does not allow you to name folders. I find the Photo Transfer App in the Apple app store which allows WiFi transfers to be far superior at a small fraction of the price.
