You created the DCIM directory off the root of the card, and the video's name is exactly 8 characters plus its extension e.g. video123.mp4 ? Try putting a similarly naming picture on in that directory and see if that is recognised
If it's an iTunes purchased video, then it should still be recognised and be able to be copied to the Photos app, but you won't be able to play it

I tried a regular photo (jpg) and put it in another subfolder with 8 letters and it does not show up either - I get the response that there are no pictures to load. So the lightning attachment seems to work but I cant seem to find a way to get it to recognize anything on the card. You mention that the DCIM is in the 'root directory' - I am not too familiar with the terminilogy but I just put a folder on the card and named it DCIM and then put in a subfolder.
Should I be doing something different?
Thanks for your help

The sub folder doesn't have to have 8 character name, but the file does
If your movie or photo's name isn't 8 characters it won't be seen.
maybe that's the issue?

The DCIM directory needs to be the first directory on the card. When I've copied photos onto a card and used it with the kit it's looked something like :
If you have another directory under the DCIM directory then that also needs to be 8 characters long e.g.

Thank you I was able to get it to recognize it with the 8 letter extension. Although the quality of the Mp4 was awful. I wonder if it would be better with .mov or something else.
