    Waste of money

    I do not know if I am doing something wrong but I've used 2different sd readers and none of them work. I try two different connection kit and still does not read my pictures. And the only reason they have a star is because I had to rate it

    Does not properly work with iPad 3!

    I can't manage to get the SD card reader to work with iPad 3. I've tried many times and I don't even get a notification on the iPad to tell me that something is even connect.

    Camera -SD Card connectors

    I have about 500 pictures I wanted to upload using the SD card connector.
    My iPad only reads 2, not the smallest not the largest.
    I have no clue why does not read the others. All are JPG but some were edited with Adobe
    I have change the files to an older SD after reading the comments that does not work with the newer ones. Same results.
    Would it be that the Adobe edit affected them and if so can something be done?

    Very disappointing

    The connection kit does not act as a perfect card reader.
    Unlike PC, you have to import the photos/videos into your ipad, which means they are useless when your ipad is full.
    I really hope that Apple provides new firmware to its products (eg. my new ipad) so that they can read photos/videos directly by using the connection kit without importing.

    It does not work properly on the new iPad (iPad 3)!

    It does not work properly on the new iPad (iPad 3)! I only worked once when I tried to plug-in and swinged it many times. But since then, it won't work anymore.

    As consumers move to use higher density/higher speed SDXC cards, Apple need to update this SD card reader adaptor for iPAD. Both the new iMAC and MacBook pro already support such capability. Why not iPAD???????

    Great little product

    I found this great to transfer photos and videos from my more space-limited iPhone to my iPad each night of my recent overseas trip. Worked flawlessly once I connected in the right sequence (error messages re device using too much power if the sequence was incorrect).

    Not Compatible to all cards

    This device does not work with SD XC cards. Have to connect the camera to the Macbook Pro to download/edit files. I will be forced to use slower cards with less GB to use the device with ipad. Disappointing.

    Would be great if it worked (Poor compatibility)

    I tried this on multiple devices with my ipad 3 and in each case got the error 'not enough power for this device'. Others have had this problem too.

    SD card reader works as stated

    I've only tried the SD card reader as I haven't had the need to use the USB reader yet. I didn't have any problems with it, it works just fine. 1) plug in the attachment with SD card in it 2) when iPad is unlocked, photos pop up right away 3) choose import all or import photos you select by touching the photo 4) choose option to keep photos on card or delete 5) imports at a decent rate, (I've only done a few at a time so it's fast to me). Easy!

    Great device

    I bought this kit back when I got my iPad 1 on release day, and it's been incredibly useful, even downloading RAW files with no problems. I was surprised that it didn't work right away on my iPad3, but then I was trying to read a 64gb card on a 64gb device (saw another user noted same problem). My 16gb card reads with no problems, so I'm assuming there's a problem with potentially reading a device that has more info than your iPad has storage? I'm an apple user for almost 20 years now, so I have faith they will fix this in a future iOS update.

    As for complainers who whine about having to download the images before you can view them full-res, name one device on the planet that allows you to view images full-res without downloading the entire file first... Have realistic expectations, then you won't be disappointed so much.

    Very Useful Accessory

    I have used the adapter for the SD card and found it very useful during my month long trip to China last summer. It was great to instantly upload all of my photos to my iPad. Doing so gave me the ability to not only backup all of my photos in the event of a catastrophe, but i was able to edit my photos on my iPad before sharing with family and friends in the U.S. Since I used the Chronicle app to journal my trip, I was also able to insert my uploaded photos into my journal. The camera connection kit is a "must-have" for anyone who travels!

    SD card reader (worthless)

    I love this kit

    I purchased this because I was going on a cruise and needed something to transer my pics and video into my iPad from my SLR. Well it worked exactly how I needed it to, video and all (using the SD card). Hooking the SLR into the USB would not work and I'm assuming it's becasue of the output. Anyway I ran into a problem gettng pictures off of my friends digital camera and onto my Mac (Mac didnt recognize camera), but after realizing the kit had a USB piece I tried it on my iPad and it worked flawlessly. Like one of the other reviewers I wish it were one piece because it is easy to forget about the other if your used to using one of the pieces, but can easlily be fixed by just keeping both in the same place (I keep both in my camera bag). Not really sure why there are so many bad reviews but I am a happy customer. I am using an iPad 2 and Lexar class 10 memory card.

    Will not work with Ipad 3

    I bought this for my Ipad2 and used it one time and it worked. I just tried to use it to upload images from a SD card and absolutely nothing happens. I called Apple for help but got none. Sorry I bought it.

    I Love This Product.

    I bought this over a year ago to transfer photos from my Nikon DSLR to my iPad 1 and it worked great. It's so small that it fits in a pocket on my camera strap! I love being able to view all my new photos on the larger screen without having to be attached to a computer or TV.

    Now I have an iPad 3 and it's even better! Much faster and with a lot better picture. I haven't used the USB adapter, but I've never had any problems with the SD reader.

    Issue with importing digital pixs with connector

    IMHO, memory cards with capacity larger than 2 gigabytes are problematic. Maybe the new iOS fixed that. Also the CF should not be used as external disk storage device with Macs or PCs prior to interfacing with iPad. iOS might get confused and refuse to import pixs. Other than that, it's indispensable especially when traveling without a laptop.

    Camera Connection Kit works great!

    I was also worried about whether I should purchase this, due to the bad reviews, but after reading the post from "Balazs L" from Seattle, I decided to pull the trigger. I tested it on the Canon 20D (in Menu -> Communication -> PTP mode) and Canon PowerShot SD780 IS and the new iPad and it works flawlessly. Each camera was connected directly to the new iPad and I did not use a card reader. Great product and I will not be taking my Macbook Pro on vacation; just the cameras and the new iPad.

    It Just Works

    I hesitated to buy this product because of a lot of negative reviews I read but it worked flawlessly. I have a new 3rd generation iPad updated to iOS 5.1. I also have a Canon Powershot G12 camera. I followed the instructions that came with the connection kit. I turned on the iPad and plugged in the mini USB device. I turned on the camera and set it to view the photos. I plugged my camera USB cable into the camera and then into the device. The photo app opened with "Camera" as one of the folders and thumbnails of the over 200 photos on my camera appeared within seconds. No drivers to download or software to install. It was quick and easy. I selected a few photos to import and in a few seconds I had high quality camera photos to show off on my iPad. This will be very useful on trips. I love the way Apple products just work!
