    Hi, I've tried connecting my camera connection kit using a Memory Stick Pro Duo card and nothing happens when I connect it. I can't use the USB connector because I lost the cable that goes to my camera, what can I do to fix this issue with my ipad2?

    You should be able to buy a replacement USB cable from amazon for $2. That is probably the best solution, as card reader only reads SD cards, and since your camera doesn't use those, you will have to connect it via USB to the iPad.

    I bought the camera kit w/ the SD card reader (which is the type of memory cards used by my Canon & Panasonic Lumix cameras) - transfers w/o a problem.

    However, Sony uses its proprietary memory cards, so using either the cable directly to the camera or some type of card adapter may be needed like the one below - might want to 'google' some different card adapter options and/or check out Amazon - the solution may be to stick your Sony card into an SD adapter and then use that w/ the iPad camera kit - maybe others who have done this will chime in? :)

    Memory Stick Duo is a Sony product and no one but Sony included a direct port. So the alternative is an adapter the Memory Stick plugs into ... and the other end is USB. The File DCIM is the file the photos are stored in. The builti-in Photo app reads that file automatically and the only thing you have to do is accept "Download all".

    You have to have the special cable that Sony provided for your camera inorder to directly plug into the USB adapter of the camera connection kit.

    Check Sony, Amazon, or Ebay.

    Didn't you know Sony has always created their own interfaces. Also your camera is likely several years old ... maybe 4 to 5 years ... as all the current digital cameras now use a version of SDHC... high capacity style.
