I have put several jpeg and tiff photos on a Sandisk 2gb sd card and want to import them into iPad2.  The tiffs were scanned and the jpegs were taken with an iphone and then emailed to me.  The iPad doesn't see the card when I insert the apple sd card adapter in it.  If I put an sd card that has pictures on it taken from our Canon camerathe iPad t reads it and imports them.  How do I simply get scanned images into the iPad?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

    the CCK will 'see' files that fit this parameter


    In a DCIM folder on the top level

    the file names have to be 8 characters


    So if you make a DCIM and edit any names to be 8 characters then it should see them. (I'm not sure if it'll see tiffs or not, only one way to find out)

    I would try to take the photos off the sd card that isn't being recognized. Place them on a computer, and just email them to yourself, pick them up on ur iPad. Not a greatly technical work around, but a work around non the less.
