    The photos app now will only import pictures that are named like a picture off the camera. So, if you're using a camera, no problem, but if you're trying to load in pictures that are coming from another source on the SD card, you have to make them look like pictures that came straight from a camera. In the past, we had to "trick" the photos app by creating a folder. Now, we have to trick the photos app by renaming them; for example DSC_0001.jpg.

    Very interesting
    thomaswhite@mvcs.org !

    Does that mean I don't have to create a DCIM dir if I rename my files as you explained ... DSC_00002.jpg ?
    Or do I have to do both ?

    Thanks to you and your teacher.

    As the CCK costs so much here, I was very reluctant to buy it given the problems reported on this forum and elsewhere, but, being such an Apple addict, I did! It works fine for me using the SD card dock.

    I really think that Apple changed the dynamics when they realized people were using it as a USB. But for just photos taken on camera and then transferring them to ipad, it seems to work.

    A friend just emailed me regarding the difficulty with using the camera/SD card kit with the new iOS.

    Here's a quote from his email....

    "Apple's iOS 4.2 upgrade has prevented data being read from some USB devices because the fondle slab puts out five times less power than before.
    The iPad has a camera connection kit enabling pictures on SD cards in digital cameras to be transferred to the iPad. This works well with the previous iPAD O/S, iOS 3, but that has 100ma going out to the USB device whereas iOS 4.2 only dribbles out a weak 20ma, not enough for many USB-connect devices.
    An Apple support discussion forum thread covers the issue."

    He went on to say, "
    Using a powered USB hub apparently works as a fix."

    before i updated the ipad it worked with a USB cable and card reader, now it says not enough power.

    I don't use a camera with an sd card so i need to restore the old OS are figure out the work around.

    Lowjiber1 any clues about how the powered hub fits in the picture (no pun intended)?

    Plug the powered hub into the connector and the card reader into the hub,, that seems the most logical
    gosh, just more stuff to drag around when traveling ugh.

    Just tested it and that will work, plug the powered hub into the connector and then the card reader into the hub.

    thanks for the info.

    I seem to be lucky...one of my cameras uses a larger card but I can just insert it into a card reader, then into the iPad, which reads the photos just fine.

    Well this sucks. I FINALLY found a local store that sells the CCK and then I found that the new iOS neuters it.

    Thank you Apple....ya morons.
    I never give up. Snideness and rudeness of any sort WILL be returned in kind.

    Annoying, but fixable

    Good news!
    So as has been previously reported all pictures must reside in the directory DCIM on the memory card. Additionally, the file name must be 8 characters long; No more, and no less. So as an example "PIC00001.jpg" and "PIC12345.jpg" are both proper file names. However "Picture001.jpg" is not and the iPad will not recognize it.

    Renaming files can be a pain so on my PC I downloaded a utility called
    "Batch Rename .EXE" from Download.com. It worked very well and solved the 8 charater problem for me.

    I recommend moving all the original files on you memory card to a directory other than DCIM and letting the Batch Rename .EXE utility both rename and move the newly named files to the DCIM directory.

    Works like a charm! Good luck!
