    You need something like a CloudFTP setup to use a USB like that on an iPad. You won't get much flexibility with a CCK unless your iPad is jailbroken.

    yep, dhewson777 is right, your ipad needs to be jailbroken to use the Camera Connection Kit.

    Does the camera connection kit not work with the SD card transfer to
    IPad? I'm not clear.

    The camera connection kit was made for the sole purpose of transfering images taking on a camera and stored on an SD card, to the iPad. It does that well. Try to go beyond that and you have to work at it more. IMO, it is a very limited device. But since the iPad, especially the 2012 model, is so good for images it does have its place. I don't use mine much, however, because I find the Air Stash, while much more expensive than the CCK, to be a lot more useful. I wish I had know of it because I ever spent case on the CCK.
