Just freshley formatted my Patriot SDXC EP 64GB Class 10 SD Card in my Canon EOS Rebel T3, and took a few test pictures using it. I then immediately put it into mynew iPad and got the following message:


"Contents not available, cannot read the connected storage media"


I then tested in my friend's new iPad, and got the same message. I put it in my original iPad and once again got the same message. I then rebooted all of the iPads using the Power + Home buttons method and shut them down and turn them back on, both with and without the Camera kit adapter. The results were the same.


Only then did I pop it into my MacBook Pro to check it. The card quickly shows up, and checking it, I find it is correctly formmated as a MS-DOS (FAT) with an ExFAT volume. Inside are two folders: a DCIM and a MISC, inside the DCIM folder is a 100CANON folder with two test shots inside it: IMG_0029.jpg and IMG_0030.jpg, as well as an EOSMISC folder.


I can easily preview the JPGs in the Finder. So the card seems to be fine.


What's going on here? The card works in the camera, it works in the Mac, and it appears to be correctly formatted by the camera.


I've reformatted the card, rebooted the iPads. Unfortunately I do not have another SD card to try in the iPad reader. But I fail to see why an SD card that works in everything else won't work in any of the iPads.


At this point is there anything else I can do, or should I just take it to an Apple Store?
