    I can't transfer photos from my Canon Powershot SD 1400 IS to my iPad. When I connect my cable to my iPad nothing happens. The cable works (I tried it with another camera and it works when connected to my computer). The funny thing is I can transfer pics from an older Canon camera no problem. Apple tech support is stumped.

    Any answers out there?

    Grabbed this off the Apple Support site a few days ago. Don't remember exactly where.

    Have you tried using the SD card reader rather than the camera cable?

    I'll get in touch with Canon

    I'm not sure I understand any of that but I'll talk to Canon and see what they say. Thanks.

    I have no problem whatsoever using the camera attachment with SDHC cards from any of my Canon cameras. It will not, however, accept a CF USB card reader as that requires more power than the iPad has.

    I would bet the OP's camera takes an SD card. I'm not sure why he/she would choose to use the cable rather than just insert the card in the camera connector for the SD cards.

    I have tried two of my card readers for the CF cards for my Canon 5D but they aren't powered snd don't reslly work so In that case I do use the miniUSB cable that came with the camera to copy my files to the Ipad. I use the CC slotted for the SD cards for my various cards from my m4/3 system. All work just fine. My husband uses the same CC to copy the files from his Canon G9’s SD card to his IPad. Worke fine also.

    To the OP: Try using the card in the CC. Your camera may have an issue rather than the cable.

    I love my camera card reader. I use a Cannon but still use the card reader. It takes the worry out of uploading pictures.
