1.0 out of 5 stars Did not work, June 28, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 5 in 1 Card Reader for iPad (Personal Computers)
At first glance I was suspicious because the device felt flimsy and cheap, not at all like an Apple product.

After inserting an SD card LESS than 1GB, it didn't recognize it. I then tried the USB option and received an error message "not enough power" or something similar.

I returned the product...very disappointed. Days later I purchased the 2-device Apple product at Best Buy and it worked perfectly right out of the box. It was sturdy and met my expectations.

Very sad to say this never worked. I kept getting the message that this item is not compatible. Waste of money.

I plugged in my SD card 512 MB, 2 GB, 4 DB, and 8 GB ..........none of them work for this camera connection kit. My iPad 2 just does not recognize any of the cards period. I then left the high density 8G Bytes SD card in my Nikon D40 camera and connected to the USB port of the kit, again same thing - It did NOT work at all. The error message said "incompatible device" of that nature...

Reformat USB to fat 32 & it will work. Most older cards cannot be read by iPad because they are not formatted to fat32.

Many of these products work with some CABLES and not others, and work with some operating systems and not others, based on my frustrating experiences.

Your device must be Jailbroken...

Once it's jailbroke and you have Cydia running try finding a program called Resupported 4.0, there is a trial but after the trials up it's a $4 charge.

I was excited to receive the product early, however, I got an error message right away saying IPad does not support this accessory. I was disappointed!
