    Hello all ive managed to get my photos to from a memory card to the ipad , i cannot view them in the standard apple folder photo viewer, where the photos go after taken with the ipad.
    I have ifile installed and found the photos in there, i also found the actual original photo album for where the photos go when taken by ipad, i tried to copy the pictures into the standard folder and they are there i can view them through ifile but still they do not show up in the apple photo view folder , the standard one where the the photos go when taken by ipad.

    Can anyone help me out ? Can or should i be able to see them in the standard photo viewer folder?

    Moving files into the right folders is rarely how stuff works on the iPad. The photo app also uses a database and if the details of the pics aren't in there (and they won't be if you manually put files onto the file system) then they won't appear in the app...

    Your best bet is to use the features of the camera connection kit to import photos into the photos app (for this to work the files will need to be on the external storage in the DCIM structure so that it looks like a digital camera to the iPad). Alternatively, you can use iTunes to sync the photos (which is the standard way).

    Trying to fudge it and manage them manually using iFile etc., is in my opinion, just too much work. But others may feel differently and be able to give you some different advice! :D

    Sometimes the memory card (supposing it's SDHD OR SDHC) is not compatible. SDXC is not supported in the current CCK (Camera Connection Kit) via USB. Or it might need a reboot and then plug it in with the memory card in the cck.

    Keep in mind, when you connect your camera and turn it on, a message might pop up saying the device is not supported.


    That might not be true!

    That happened to me. Turns out there's an item in my camera's built-in configuration menu that's called "connection:" and it was set to "pc connection" - the other setting was "print/PTP". Apple's instructions said that the cck was compatible with PTP (picture transfer protocol) devices, so I changed it to the "print/PTP" setting. When I connected it and turned it on, iPad detected the camera but it said there were no photos to import. I knew there were photos on the camera so I rebooted the iPad and tried again and finally, it worked.

    So, if things seem to not be working at first, it may turn out to just be some little setting that needs to be changed. My camera btw, is a Canon Digital Rebel XT (just in case the OP or any else has the same camera and is having similar troubles).

    I would have to agree w/ the above having tried different memory cards - the only method that was successful for me was to place the images onto the camera's SD card w/i a subfolder of the DCIM folder (the format on the SD card for my Panasonic camera) and then rename the images to follow that used by the camera; finally the iPad did recognize and import the pics - see the screen capture below from my laptop using Explorer to show the SD's folder & file format (listed as E) - if you (or others) find an easier way then please let us know! :)

    If you've made those albums within the Photo app, then no, you cannot delete the photos from your main folder/Photo app. That's because you actually only make a link to those albums when you create them. The photos don't get duplicated. So, deleting them would break the link and the photo would be gone everywhere.
