    Camera kit works for 1-way transfer from a camera to your ipad.

    things may change, and i have read stories about writing to a usb stick or reading from one directly. but I havent been able to do that.

    Unless you jailbreak you can't write to anything through the connection kit. I have gotten usb drives to work by using a powered hub. I've only used it to load pictures though. Probably work with videos too, but I haven't tried it.

    Apparently the camera connector kit used to be able to connect anything from keyboards to USB headphones until Apple restricted it in some iOS3 update

    I use my connection kit to view movies and as storage for my music and pictures (iFile and Goodplayer)
    I use either a 16GB microSd or a 8GB kingston USB flash. However i also have a 16GB tiny SanDisk USB flash that dosn´t work :( (it needs to much power).
    Anyone heard of a solution to increase the power output so that i can use the 16GB flash?

    You can use microsd cards with the cck? Via a little adapter used for laptops I assume, right? I have a 32 gb sd card going to waste. Would love to use it lol

    Sure, use the 32GB card with the CCK. It should work just fine (especially since you're jail broken, right?). I believe 32GB is the highest it goes right now, but still ...

    This is true, I know some people used to use USB microphones for good quality podcast recording.
    I personally used to use a USB barcode scanner. After the iOS update it no longer works and gives a message that the iPad can't give enough power and the devices is not compatible.
