Hi I've just got an ipad mini. I bought the SD to ipad card reader from apple.

The ipad 3 will not recognise the SD card.

Im using the card in a Nikon D800E


I'm also using a CF card in the D800, this is read fine by the ipad 3.

im saving images as jpegs.


It seems strange as the same images are read off the CF card, but not the SD card.

Im using 64GB Sandisk cards (both CF and SD)

    If your device is not recognized, verify it is configured correctly:



    1. iPad Camera Connector supports Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) and Mass Storage Device protocol.



    2. iPad SD Card Reader supports SD standards up to SDHC, miniSD and microSD with adapters, and MMC. SDXC is not supported.
