  • The short answer is "it's designed that way". Basically, this adapter was designed to import photos and videos from directly attached cameras. It's not a generic USB adapter for any USB device, and was never meant to be. You are welcome to try other uses such as the one you mentioned, but there is no guarantee it will work, and Apple will only support the stated and original design purpose.
