    I have tried using the camera connection kit using three different makes of thumb drives and two memory cards, all I get is a message saying "The USB Device Is Not Supported" Is there a setting I have to make for these adapters to work.
    Thanks for any help.

    It has worked with everything I have thrown at it. Even if it says this device is not supported it will still work. I transfer files to and from my ipad all the time using thumb drives and ifile. I have even gotten it to work with my cell phone and powered external hard drive. What exactly are you trying to do with it?

    Isn't it true, not sure, you need to have a base folder called DCIM to get these thumb drives to work?

    I'm fairly new to the Ipad but I have the camera connection kit and have successfully transfered photos to the Ipad. I'm curious as to what I would need to transfer FROM the ipad to a thumb drive? Do I need ifile? Thanks and sorry if this has been asked before. Feel free to chastise me if so.

    For those of us who ain't too smart, can you provide more detailed instructions about this DCIM thing to transfer files. I have the camera kit and want to use it to transfer various docs to a USB drive. Thanks.

    DCIM is a folder that all cameras make on your sd card. it is where you will find your pictures if you were to search the card as if it were a harddrive. The iPad is looking for that folder when you connect it using the CC kit. People have stated that you can transfer movies and such this way as well, as long as you use the DCIM folder, but I am not sure about that, or wether you have to be jailbroken or not.
