    guys....he said he already formatted to fat 32 and still doesn't work, lol

    Got to say it is a pain, I would try a different card reader if you can.

    There is only one reader for the iPad.

    If the card doesn't work try a different brand.

    Update: I have reformatted a PNY 8 gb SDHC card and a Lexar 4 gb SDHC card using Fat 32. I get the same error message. I tried a SanDisk 4 gb MicroSD card and it worked. The card was from a camera though. I am going to try a regular SanDIsk non-HC card and see if that works.

    Has anyone used an SDHC card in one of the IPAD card readers? I'm starting to wonder if it simply does not work with the high capacity cards, though it indicates that they do.

    I want to see if Apple will exchange the reader for me.

    Format to FAT 32 alone may be the problem

    The camera connection kit when it detects a card with pictures immediately launches the photo import program. It most probably does that since it reads and for most every camera finds a directory named DCIM. In the computer formatting of a card wipes it clean. "In camera" format wipes clean and then places the DCIM directory on the card. Try adding that directory to your card and see if it works. Otherwise it is most probably defective.

    Tiger.

    I'm going to try that. I don't think it will work though. I have tried 4 cards now. 2 SDHC cards did not work. A regular SD card did not work. A MicroSD card from my wifes little digital camera did.

    Latest update. I went to the Apple store in Staten Island on Thursday. I got slammed with traffic. Yuck.

    They tried my SD card reader and of course it didn't work. They tried it in another IPAD and it didn't work either. So they ordered me a new from Apple.

    It came today and guess what, it didn't work either.

    So my question is what SD card are you guys using? I have tried a regular SanDisk card, an SDHC card from PNY and an SDHC card from Lexar.

    What cards do you guys recommend?
