    Hi

    Have just purchased a camera connector off amazon and have tried it with my ipad1. It tries to downloaded photos from sd card but then says that it is not supported.

    :(

    Make sure the SD card is formatted by your camera. Computer formatted cards don't always work. RAW files may or may not work. The file names of the pictures need to be 8 characters long, similar to the way a camera names them. The pictures all have to be int he DCMI folder.
