    You need to get Apple's Camera Connection Kit. Then you can import photos & videos from your camera or the camera's SD card.


    Another way. 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.,; 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.)


    To import music, you'll have to sync using your computer.


     Cheers, Tom
