When I bought my IPad, I also bought the photo connector accessory.
It worked perfectly to download photos directly from my camera to the IPad.
I recently upgraded to OS4 and now when I connect the camera to the IPad I get the message "the connected USB device requires too much power".
The batteries on the camera and the IPad are both fully charged. Any thoughts? BTW, I dumped a Windows laptop just because of such goofy behavior.
Is that with the camera cable or the card reader?
If one try the other.
One of the reasons Apple didn't include a standard usb port was the power drain on the battery.
Fwiw I tried the card reader a couple of hours ago with a raw files on 4.2 and it loaded them all correctly.
It was with the camera cable which worked fine before.
I could not use my card reader. My error message was "no photos found" (or words to that effect). I suppose my 4.2 didn't load correctly.

Suck port as usual has no answers i am so tired of not getting answers 2 the simplest questions like the format of the sd card since mine doesnt do anything when i plug it in. docs say nothing either (and i thought microsux was bad)
I have no idea what format the card has to be in, but in the past the image files had to be in a DCIM folder (as if created by a camera), now with 4.2 the image files have to be named as if they came right out of the camera too (no prefixes, suffixes or alternate file-naming). I assume that it recognizes camera-adjusted filenames, but I haven't tested that. Good luck,

My camera uses a compact flash card and I use a card adapter and it works fine. Be sure your card is formatted by your camera. Good luck.

I hope that the formatting solves your card problem but more importantly I hope and pray your health improves. Wishing you the best
