    Just bought an original Apple Camera connection kit and the Ipad doesnt see any memory cards installed at all. Anyone know if this is normal. Nothing comes up. I have the latest Firmware installed on the Ipad.

    Have you opened the Photo app? Nothing happens, when you plug in the CC kit, but the Photo app will have another tab at the top, where you can access your SD card content.

    Are you using an SDHC card? And how much GB does it have?

    Have you tried restarting the iPad?

    It really should work, so these are just some guesses, in lack of an alternative.

    Hiya, Thanks for your help. Yeah, It's a Samsung SDHC 8GB Card. I'll look around and see if I have a smaller one to try.

    It really should work OK. I have the kit too and an iPad1 and there's no problem. As DontUnderstandMyIpad suggested, try restarting your iPad - i.e. switching it completely off by holding down the Power button for a couple of seconds and then accepting the slider to power down. This has been known to fix a whole bunch of problems.

    Keep in touch if these suggestions don't fix the problem.

    For accessing photos from a SD card, or via USB from a camera, no extra software is needed. You would need ifiles however, to see/copy other filetypes, besides pictures. But for OP's purposes ifile is not required.

    SDHC cards are supported and Apple's troubleshooting only lists one possible solution, restarting, so the issue must be fundamentally simple:

    Restarting fixed everything...:)

    But I've found that, when I plug my connection kit in, it takes a while for the iPad to 'recognise' the photos on the card and display them in 'Photos'.

    By the way, the photos you're trying to import - what format are they?

    I just wondered if the original poster was using RAW files - does the iPad import those? I don't know because I only have a Sony CyberShot...:(
