Am having the exact same problem with a new iPad 3rd gen and a new CCK. If all it takes is a subdir DCIM then why the blank didn't they put that in the directions and NOT waste all of our time? geez I almost threw the CCK out the window last night. And as a photographer, not all of my images are coming directly from a camera SD card "properly" tucked into a DCIM folder.
OK-I'm better now.
Thank you all for your enlightenment!

So what am I doing wrong? done everything that has been suggested so far but still nothing, 10 jpegs saved from Macmini on to SD card in a folder called DCIM, inserted into cardreader in Ipad and it comes up with No photos to import. Any ideas anyone?

Be sure the photos have 8-character names plus suffix, just as if they had been named in a camera.
Examples are IMG_0925.JPG, MOMSPIES.JPG, IMGP0233.JPG, WaspNest.jpg, P6160043.JPG, MVI_0143.MOV.

In case this can help anyone else, I recently bought a cheap adaptor from eBay for a few quid. I've found it only works when the battery is well charged. Can't say exactly what %, but if it's low, nothing. Even when it's well charged, I get my pictures and post them or whatever, then quite a while later, I get the message that iPad doesn't support this device-doh!

Holy crap! It works! 8 charecters plus suffix. Tried moving some old photos that I had renamed and it wouldn't work. Did 12345678.JPG and there it was. Why didn't they say that on instructions!!!!

For those who have tried all of the above with no results, you try what worked for me: blow really hard into the female 30pin connector on your iPad. Maybe there is a more technical way to clean out that connector.

Ok I am having this same problem. Tried all the obvious ( reformatting, making sure file directory and file names are correct, restarting ipad). Nothing. The ipad does not even know it is connected as far as I can tell. Any help would be appreciated. I am using an ipad mini, apple cck, transcend 16gb sdhc card, and files directly off brand new canon eos t4i. Thanks in advance.

i understand the ipad Mini uses the newer "Lightning" connector. Is there a new Lightning Camera Connection Kit?
If you are using the old 30 Pin Camera Connection Kit, how are you adapting it to your Lightning connector?

There are now two separate products for this functionality:
SD Card reader
The old Camera Connection Kit will work with Lightning using the:

I am using the sd lightning adapter, which is new for the new connector. Honestly, having read a lot if posts about problems with various setups, I cannot figure out what the problem is, except
That maybe the actual connector is broken. Seems like a lot if people just give up and send te connector back, which I may yet do, but I really want it to work.

Do "videos" have to be in the DCIM folder (not home else I would try)? I have an SD card with 1) photos under the DCIM folder from my DSLR and videos under PRIVATE from the video camera, .MTS files. I also have .mov and .m4v files at the top level on the SD card. Plug the card into the iMAC and iMovie and Aperture auto-run and all is fine. Plug the SD card into iPAD4 with Apple CCK via lightning. I can import the photos, but cant see or import the video.

I don't think that MTS video files are a format that can be transfered to/played on an iPad. You will probably need to convert them on your computer to a format supported by the iPad. I convert videos to MP4 format and they transfer and play just fine. You'll need a video converter software for your computer but several freeware software programs are available to you. Just search the net for "free video converter."
