    iPad sd connector... How do I get it working again?

    Hey guys. So I have had my iPad since Xmas. I was very disappointed that the sd connector gave me and error the first time I tried loading photos on to it (device uses too much power) but I got around this by using the USB instead. About 3 months ago I got a new camera, and now the USB doesn't work. I'm just about fed up of it now. I'm fed up of having to switch ye old desktop on just to sort my photos out when my expensive piece of kit here should be more than capable!

    So, can I not downgrade the updates so that it works again? Is it the 4.2.1 that broke it? If so can I not restore it to before then?

    If I can't I'm seriously considering trading it in for a Asus tablet that has an actually sd slot. (I won't go for the ipad2 as im worried apple will just update willy nilly and take features away!!)

    Any help would be REALLY appreciated!!!! Thank you xx

    What card are you using in the SD adapter? There are lots of problems using flash drives on the USB, but I have never heard of a single SD Card that does not work...

    I am well aware of the problem and have it myself for USB devices only. I have never seen or heard of any SD card which, when connected directly to the SD CCK adapter, and not via any card reader, will not work. I have about 6 different SD cards. I've just never seen that error on the SD Adapter.

    To be fair the main article you linked to is all about the USB Adapter and using CF cards. I don't deny those don't work. I'm just surprised by the SD Cards.

    Oh, and 64GB SD Card has set alarm bells ringing.
    I am pretty sure the specification is clearly stated as SDHC which are maximum 32GB unless I am mistaken.

    EDIT - I see you said you tried a SDHC 8GB, so that should work. But not a 64GB.
