    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.

    Does it still work? Waiting for my camera kit to arrive, my ipad 2 is jailbroken. What app do I use for the mp3/video storage in the kit?

    Use the Cydia tweak iFile ($4.00, USD). Then, when you plug in the CCK (SD card works best with) and open iFile, it will show the contents of the SD card. Then, you can open the file(s) with either iFile or use the "Open In..." function.

    Just be aware that if you open the file in another app, you will leave iFile to go to/use that app AND the file will be stored in that app. So, you'll have to delete it from the iPad once you are done and if you don't want it...

    Hope this helps.

    For camera only, all iPads are compatible. For more advanced stuff without jailbreaking, only iOS3 on the iPad 1.

    I've done this, and sort of got a 32 SDHC card to work with my CCK.

    The problem is every 3 minutes, Photos app comes up and tries to import any photos on the SDHC card, regardless of whether I have any or not.

    This is really annoying, especially while watching a video or doing anything else.

    I'm surprised this issue hasn't been mentioned yet, so anyone else have the same problem? More importantly, anyone know a fix? OS 5.0.1 on iPad 2
