I have photos on a 4g SD card.  When I plug iCard reader int iPad it says : No photos found.  I had used this method to a few pics on iPad when I first got it, but it doesn't  work now.  What gives?


iPhone 3GS, iOS 6.0.2

Is the a program that renames the photos?  Or do I have to manually rename each one!!?  The first photos were from a Fuji camera.  I just successfully dwindled some from my new Sony DSLR and it worked!!  Thanks for the help.

    How did the photos get onto the card ? If you copied them onto it from your computer 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

    There are programs available, both for Macs and PCs. If they have come straight from your camera then they should, in theory, already have 8 character names - or did you rename them when importing them to your computer prior to adding them back onto a card ?
