    I bought the Camera Connection Kit yesterday. I wanted to use the USB connection with my phone (Droid) and my camera (Nikon P&S). When I hooked either of those up to the kit, I got an error message, "The connected USB device requires too much power"

    I thought it was supposed to work with any camera. The SD kit works just fine...but I don't want to constantly take my SD card out of the camera, and I can't use it with my phone...

    It works just fine with my Dad's iPod Touch (4th Gen)...and from what Apple says, it works just fine with the iPhone (which I can't get until VZW releases it)

    So, I am faced with a dilemma now. What can I do to get it to work?

    I'm not JB at the moment, because I've been waiting for an untethered.

    I did call Apple, and they said it is a widespread issue, and it may be fixed in the 4.3 update, but she couldn't be sure.

    There is no JB solution yet, apples reduced the power output from 100mah to 20mah. This causes issues for many people (myself included) I can use some SD cards and a few old usb flash drives.

    The USB doesn't work for most cameras. Just have too use the SD card.... Not sure why they lowered the power but it's stuck supporting mostly apple devices.

    Fixed.

    CCF will not work on the iPhone. Tried it. It says that it is not supported and will go no further.

    I was referring to using it iPhone to iPad. Not using the kit on the iPhone.

    @rocshaus Using the USB connector? Perhaps the higher end SLRs are good. Just weird that a simple P&S uses too much power, lol

    Okay ~ so bear with me. I was going to get the camera kit today, but if I am reading this thread right, it might not work with my new camera?

    The problem is probably due to the last os upgrade reducing the usb voltage.
