iPad Camera Connection Kit issues and CF cards

On an IPAD2 we have just tried to use an SD card using the reader that comes in the connection kit. The card did not show up on the IPAD and the images could only be viewed by connecting the camera with this SD card in it.
Some other cards read just fine. Unfortunately I have not recorded the capacity of the cards we tried it with, and unsure if there is a limit to the size of the card the IPAD connection kit can recognize.

Another issue is that we also use CF cards a lot. Not sure if these can be read by the IPAD in any way. Haven't had one on hand to try at least connecting the Canon 5D Mark II to it to see if it would read via the camera.

Any experiences people can share with me on either cases would be great.

Thanks & Regards
