    This has been driving me NUTS for days. If I put an MP4 video on an SD card and (via the camera connection kit) attach to the Ipad2. The "photos" app automatically launches and it recognises the photos but NOT the video's

    everythings in the DCIM directory
    Ive tried different SD cards
    Ive tried different MP4 videos

    The same videos will be recognised if I load them via iTunes but I want a way to store lots of videos on an external SD card when I go away

    Anyone know how to do this?

    I moved this to the Help section, where I think it will receive better attention.

    Ipad videos via SD card

    The filename of the video must be the same as the camera format - change it to abc12345.mp4 for example, any 8 digits plus the extension

    Is there any way to change the filename directly on the iPad? I won't have my laptop and I don't think my camera has an option for filename change.

    I don't have the camera kit, but give superfiles lite a try

    Tap edit then tap the file you wish to rename, you can then rename it at the very top of the screen

    I don't know if this will work with media via the camera kit, but it works with ftp, idisk, mydrive, basically cloud storage services as well as files uploaded via the app, so worth a try, and it is free with a paid version

    Thanks. I tried it but the file name doesn't show up? Is there any way to browse to the folder where iPad photos are saved by default? When you use the camera connection kit you get the option to import files and it saves them to a folder that I'm not sure how to access on superfiles?

    In superfiles, next to the cloud icon, there is a camera icon, tap that, it then asks whether you want to take a photo or choose a photo from the library

    When you import photos from the camera kit, it puts them into the library

    The issue isn't pics... They import easily. It's videos that I shoot with my Sony Cybershot camera. When I connect the camera to my iPad and import any of those videos, it imports fine but shows a grey icon with "MP4" written on it. Why can't the iPad play these videos? I checked the file names and they're all 8 letters+numbers long and the Sony Cybershot is a popular camera so I can't assume it has to do with the generated files being uncommon?! I'd appreciate any help. I don't believe this is a file name issue.
