    I have them both. What can I do with them besides load photos onto my iPad2?

    Wellll...
    You can use SOME accessories with the USB adapter, but many are not supported because of power consumption. For the SD card adapter, photos is probably the only use.

    I don't own a camera connection kit, so therefore can not think of any sepcific accessories off the top of my head.

    The Camera Connection Kit (CCK), is only designed to hook up an SD card or USB or camera for the purpose of transferring photos to the iPad (and video in a limited capacity). Some with jailbroken iPads have been able to open it up for file transfers and even hook up USB keyboards for use with the iPad.

    Check out the threads on it here.

    I believe some USB mics can be used with the USB adapter...

    The statement was quite rude, please be respectable to all members. When someone asks the Internet (the iPad Forums in this case), there's no need to to assume that the member was being ignorant which then gives you permission to be rude. There are other members in this forum that have a camera connection kit that could have gladly what other devices that could have been used with the camera connection kit.
    Please be nice to other members next time,
    Biobunny

    That's ok, and thanks for editing your last post too, even if I'm not a mod. :)

    Mic and photos are the only uses I know of without jail breaking the iPad.

    I bought the camera connection kit and have yet to find any real function. Perhaps if I'm on vacation, but otherwise? I can't connect a USB thumbdrive to pull images off, so if I were to ever fill the iPad with images, I'd need my laptop to swap images.

    Hi Tom Thumb.

    I found by a fluke a couple of USB keyboards that worked.
    But then my geek friends laughed at me using an iPad with keyboard!
    About USB flash drives, again it is a case of suck and see.
    But as far as I can tell you can only import photos into the iPad, not export them.
    To make the USB drive work you need to mimic the SD card in it's folder organising.
