    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.

    What?

    • Written by from EAGAN

    I just bought the camera connection kit and plugged it in as described in the instructions. A message came on the iPad screen indicating there was not enough power. This is a fully powered iPad. Not indicating there isn't enough space.....very confused and about to turn around and return the dumb thing.

    Did now doesn't

    • Written by from SAN ANTONIO

    This was a great tool .Both the sd and the usb worked well until recently.
    One of my cameras uses a compact flash card which I connected to a card reader and the USB dongle. I no longer can transfer because suddenly too much power is required!!!
    If it worked originally, it should keep working in subsequent software updates or it seems like a breach of contract to pull the capability away.
    Please restore how this works.
    Thank you

    Not worth it

    • Written by from McHenry

    I was hoping to be able to use this for a jump drive (Memory stick, Thumb drive whatevever you like to call it) so that I could put movies on it and take them with me as I travel a lot for work and don't want to have to take my computer with me as well. Jumb drives don't work, and if the memory card isn't formated for a camera (used in a camera) it won't read the card. This is the first Apple product I am truly dissapointed with. I guess I'll have to make sure I have the movies I want with me, iCloud only has 5gb of free storage and I don't feel like paying yearly for more, unless I have no other option...

    DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT!

    • Written by from Briarcliff Manor

    I'm extremely disappointed! I got this for my birthday and though oh great I can upload photos easy without going through syncing and stuff. WRONG! I used it once and what happens? My photo library with all the photos I've already imported from my PC are gone. I can't find them. So I tried reimporting my photo library the old fashion way... I got half photos and not even all of them. I got 12photos out of the 400 I imported and some of them were half photo half white screen. This is a rip off dont buy this.

    I'M SICK OF THE ROTTEN APPLE!!!!!!!

    I have purchased two iPad Camera Connection Kits for use with SDHC cards. Neither of them worked! My iPad doesn't even recognize that the connector is docked.

    Waste of money. SDXC DOESN'T WORK

    • Written by from West palm beach

    Not compatible with SDXC, and I thought Apple products just worked. Apple is usually great but this was a waste of money. I am new to photography and all my memory cards are SDXC because it is the newest technology.

    $$$ Camera Kit Scam

    • Written by from beaverton

    Purchased the camera kit yesterday (6/17/2012) and it was a total bust. I should have read all the reviews before purchasing. It seems apple has decided that OS5 was designed to get you to spend more to Download pictures from your camera. Nice move apple!

    Seriously...? Waste of money!

    • Written by from Webb City

    So I just connected my camera to my iPad for the first time, and I am also getting the inadequate power message. So I just wasted a bunch of money on a software issue? Apple, I expect so much better from you. All I want is to make room on my camera for more vacation pictures, and now it seems I can't. Wonderful...

    USELESS!!!

    • Written by from Arlington

    I have a 3rd generation iPad and a DSLR camera. The camera requires loading its compact flash cards or microdrives into a USB adaptor to transfer photos from the camera to a computer. My new iPad gives me an error message saying that the device requires too much power. What a ridiculous design, I bought a top of the line iPad + a $30 device which I now find out can't work together. What a WASTE of money! Apple I am very disappointed in you,as well as disgusted. What were you thinking?! I would have chosen a -1 rating if I could have.

    Crippled By Apple

    • Written by from Warrensburg

    This device USED to work great, until Apple reduced the power to the dock from 100 ma to 20 ma. They did this to try to control what devices people could/could not used with their products. However, now this product is all but USELESS because MANY SDXC cards & USB flash drives WILL NOT WORK with the kit b/c, as many other reviewers have already mentioned, the error message of, "The connected USB device requires too much power."

    Thanks Apple. Thanks a lot. Now I have $30 of worthless plastic and no convenient way to get the things I want on and off of my iPad 2 when away from home. "With Apple, it just works" MY BUM, Tim Cook.

    The USB connection is worthless because it will not supply power to the USB drive so it will not read it. The camera connection is worthless because it won't read the jpg files from a Canon G11 or 5D3. Apple thanks for nothing.

    so disappointed

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    Just bought a Nikon S9300 and the iPad Camera Connector Kit. If one of the two had to fail, I'd choose the connector kit, because it did. "Device requires too much power" or some such nonsense. As if I have to time for this. How do you sell a product that a customer can't use?
