    I have put my Gopro headcam SD card into the Ipad but the I Pad wont play the MP4 video. This works with my standard sony camera. Any ideas on how I can watch the video.

    Thanks

    I did read (here probably), that the GoPro's formatted SD cards are formatted in a way the iPad do not likes. I cannot recall which was FAT32 and which was NTFS, etc.


    I would recommend transferring the files from the GoPro card to another card with the correct formatting before importing with the CCK.

    I have two regular digital cameras and I can watch video on my Kodak but not my Sony, you can look and see if your videos are in a a different folder? By default the iPad reads the DCIM folder for images and video on the sd card. Failing this you may have to just convert the videos first.
