    Will my camera connection kit that I bought for my iPad 1 work with the iPad 3?

    Yes, though I have not tried it - I am pretty sure that apple has not produced a different camera connection kit. I got one with the new iPad and it does not say anything about which generation it is for.

    Apple sent me a free one in the mail the other day since my new iPad arrived damaged and I tried it a few minutes ago with an SD card full of photos and it recognized the kit but said there were no photos to import. I put some photos in the root directory as well as the DCIM directory but to no avail. I also shut down and restarted. The kit worked fine on the iPad 2 that I sold to a friend yesterday.

    Mickeylittle, I would try it with a different SD card - or a different iPad3 to eliminate the possibility that your iPad is having a problem or the SD card has something wrong with it, or the connection kit is borked.
    I had no problem connecting the one I got to the iPad3.

    I just used mine to plug in a 16GB SD card from one of my cameras. It does pop up with a list of photos to import. So, I would say it works just fine!

    Thanks guys, it's obviously just me! I'll figure it out sometime on down the road. If it works on my wife's unit I'm sure not sending my new iPad in just because this doesn't work!

    Like I said it worked on an iPad 2 yesterday so when she gets home I'll try it on hers and I really hope it doesn't work on hers.:eek:

    It works perfectly fine, I have it for my iPad 3 and I use it to import videos recorded with my iPhone 4s and then I edit them on my iPad and it imports the videos and photos pretty quick :)
