    It doesn't seem to work currently. I bought the adapter and have been using it with my camera without any issues, but hard drives do not seem to work. I have the adapter powered and have tried both flash drives and hard drives. The camera app opens but there is no functionality to view the drives content. I also tried file explorer apps from the App Store, but none recognise the drive.

  • iOS does not allow you to browse the files on USB drives yet. It will, however, power some of them.
