There is a little device you plug in to the charging slot... I will find it and post back

Sorry for the multiple messages - on a train with an iPad isn't a great way to use a forum... And safari doesn't allow me to edit a post.
I have used the USB dongle out of the pack to upload pictures but I mainly use the sd card version. They are sold as a pair

You can upload via USB, but it has 'catches'
First, I've only had a 50/50 success rate getting USB drives to work. So expect some trial and error.
SEcond, all photos must follow a very strict naming convention. There needs to be a folder named DCIM, and all photo file names must be 8 characters only. For example, DSC_3456
You can also not view them from the USB in anything but as a thumbnail. To view them full sized you need to import them onto the iPad.

You can use a USB flash drive & the camera connection kit.
Plug the USB flash drive into your computer & create a new folder titled DCIM. Then put your movie/photo files into the folder. The files must have a filename with exactly 8 characters long (no spaces) plus the file extension (i.e., my-movie.mov; DSCN0164.jpg).
Now plug the flash drive into the iPad using the camera connection kit. Open the Photos app, the movie/photo files should appear & you can import. (You can not export using the camera connection kit.)
