I have the iPad photo accessorie duo adaptor.  I put the SD Card adaptor in and put the SD card in and nothing happens. Photo app does not open and there is no option to import photos.  What could the problem be?

    How did the photos get onto the card, direct from the camera or have you copied them onto it form your computer ? If you've copied then you need to create a DCIM directory off the root of the card, with the photos underneath it, and the photo filenames need to be exactly 8 characters long (no spaces) plus the file extension i.e. in a similar format as if a camera had created/written them.


    If it's come straight from the camera then is the kit firmly inserted into the iPad's dock ?

    Straight from the camera, and yes both the SD card and port are secured. I even took the iPad cover off to make sure it was in there firmly.  I just doesn't recognize the SD card or something.

    Try a reset and see if it's recognised after the iPad has restarted : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.
