Has anyone ever used the USB adapter for iPad? I know they specify camera but I need something to transfer documents between iPad and PC.

 

Thanks!

    You can use it to sync, but not as a storage connection.

    USB adapter for iPad

     

    What are we talking about?  Sync cable or Camera connection kit?

    Camera connection kit.

     

    The usb connector for the ipad as lots of restrictions.

    -- It is an input only connection

    -- only supports input of pictures & video

    -- low power only usb devices.

    You will have better luck with the sync cable.

     

    There are lots of ways of moving files.
