    I am trying to load photos from my friends Mac to my ipad. We loaded the photos to a camera scan disk from his Mac but when I insert it in the connection kit to import the photos no pictures are shown on my ipad to import. Is there any other way for him to send the pics to my ipad not using email pls advice

    Try the app Photo Transfer App. There is a version for iOS and Mac. Makes photo transfer seamless.

    Are you using wifi or Bluetooth for transfer?

    And you tried the Photo Transfer App on both the Mac and IPad together, or just the iPad using the web interface on the Mac side?

    If you follow the instructions on the iPad for iOS device to Mac, you should not even need the browser. You need to have started the Photo Transfer App on the Mac side. I'm not sure about the slowness, because I've found it quite fast. Possibly the photos are of a very high resolution? Larger files may take longer to transfer with any method. I'm not sure whether the iPad will try to resize them automatically if they are too big?

    Add your pics to the camera data card and insert it to the connection kit. If in the photo folder if no camera tab appears switch off your device, restart and then insert your card again to be processed.This problem is often resolved by switching off and then restarting it again.
    Also check your card supports the connection kit.
