    I purchased the Ipad Camera Connection Kit. I put an SD card into the card reader and plug it into the Ipad and I get a message that the USB device is not supported. I have several videos on it. It is a PNY 8GB SDHC card. I also just tried a SanDisk 4GB card as well. No good.

    This is the Ipad SD Card reader. Shouldn't it work? :confused::confused::confused:

    Any thoughts?

    are the memory cards formated in Fat32?

    also as far as i know it only works with photos, not videos.

    the camera connector kit just lets you import photo's from cameras or sd cards onto the ipads internal memory. you cant view/edit anything directly on the SD card.

    The problem come from the type of card you use, i got the same trouble with one SD card , i try an other one from a small Canon we have and work like charm so now i know from where that come … by the way if you have an 3GS iPhone you can also connect it to the iPad as camera using the USB port and Apple cable

    Just to download pictures you already took with the iphone, not as an actual camera.

    Camera Connection Kit

    Thanks for the input!!!

    Actually the SD card adapter can be used to transfer videos as well per Apple's documentation.

    The documentation also indicates that SDHC cards can be used, as well as MicroSD cards, provided that you have the adapter for it.

    I tried two SDHC cards and they gave me the same error message. I also tried a MicroSD card, in an SD adapter, and then inserted that into the Apple SD card adapter and that did work.

    Strange.

    I am going to try the format issue as suggested by Mike.

    I will keep you guys posted. Any other thoughts would also be appreciated!!!

    I reformatted the SD card using FAT 32. It still does not work.

    This is particularly irritating as I purchased an 8 GB SDHC card today specifically to store videos on to carry with me to transfer to my Ipad when I so desire. And again, the documentation that comes with the Camera Connection Kit specifically says it works with SDHC.

    I guess I will call Apple on Monday.

    Believe me Apple can’t help you as the reader work … i am on Mac so i can’t help you if you are in PC , but i am pretty sure the problem come from the card format, of course if your card work in other device i mean not broken or corrupted …

    one of my card don’t work in my iPad so i reformat and now work like a charm

    I'd also make sure the video is encoded in a format that can be used by the ipad. I've used SDHC via the camera kit without a problem. I did have an issue with a Micro SD but got it to work after a couple of tries (I didn't have the micro pushed in far enough).

    Calling apple won't get you anywhere. You need to format the sdcard as fat32 and clear everything on it off. Even if it is empty reformat the sdcard many cards need to be reformatedbefor they work with some devices.

    If that doesn't work take the sdcardback and get a different brand.
