I just got the iPad camera connection kit and while the system does see and identify it I can't seem to see the SD card itself in Amy of the applications. Can anyone tell me how I get to see and select photos, music and videos currently on the SD card so I can import, drag, sync, link, fetch or whatever it's called? Do I need to get an App in order for this thing to function? All the accompanying documentation said is to select the photos but how do i get to do just that?

iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi, iOS 5.1.1

    The CCK will only import photos and videos in a format supported by the iPad. The photos and videos mustave an eight charactory name and be in a folder titled DCIM in the root directory of the SD card.

    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., my-movie.mov; 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.)

    If your photos are named correctly, once you insert the SD card into the card reader, the photo app willjust open up and so will a dialogue box so you can chooe which photos to import


    You can also import videos, but they have to follow the same naming convention as the photos.


    apps cannot be imported, neither can documents or music, only photos and videos

    I was hoping to use the CCK to import movies from my video camera onto my iPad2 but when I plug it into the adapter it doesn't read it. Is it because my camera files need to changed to an 8 character name as mentioned above?  To my knowledge, I cannot change the file names until after I import them to a device.


    If this the case, then the CCK is pretty much useless for me, I guess.

    Hi i have brought a 5in1 camera connection kit and i can transfer photos from my sd card to my ipad 2 but do u no how i can transfer photos from the ipad to the sd card so i can get them printed? Or any other way i can get them printed?

    You can't transfer photos (or any other content) off the iPad with the kit (you can copy them to your computer). Does the store that you want to use have it's own app ? Or you might be able to upload the photos to the store's website via Safari.
