Reader usually works right out of box but sometimes you will need more information to get it working. Here is some Important and helpful tips:
Does not work with iPhones, iTouch, stick pro duo, Flash drives, HC SD cards, PNY, Sony Memory Cards
Only designed to recognize JPEG files.
Works with SD Cards (under 24gb), Micro SD Cards and USB Plugs
Make sure the USB drive is formatted as FAT32 - Create a folder in the root of the USB drive called DCIM - Make sure the file names of the pics and videos are exactly 8 alphanumeric characters long plus a supported extension - File names must be letters and numbers ONLY - Make sure all pics end in the .jpg extension (NOT .jpeg) - Make sure the videos are of a supported type: .mp4, .m4v and maybe .mov - Folders inside the DCIM folder can be used if they are 8 alphanumeric characters long - The USB drive must use 20mA or LESS power or it will not work. - You can get USB drives that use more than 20mA of power to work by using a wall powered USB hub
The filenames MUST start with at least DSC and be only eight characters total without any spaces. Using all caps or all lower case for "dsc" or ".jpg" did not matter. The other 5 characters after the DSC did not matter, but you could not use a space. Example: DSCNNuge.JPG; dscnNuge.jpg; dscnnuge.JPG; DSC0nuge.jpg would all work.

PS I have an iPad 3(New IPAD) and have not tested on iPad 1 or iPad 2. If I get an opportunity I will update the posting. Will have to confirm using larger than 2GB memory cards as well but do not see that it would pose a problem.
Do highly recommend
I also formatted a few SDHC and micro SD cards and copied jpegs on to them. No problem! This worked fine too.
Haven't played w/ video yet, but, no idea if this will or won't work and to be fair, this add-on device is not advertised to support video at all. The USB connection allows for a 5V USB source or hub so that you can maintain the required 5V for your device (keyboard, etc) and also charge (and provide adequate volts output to power everything) the iPad/iPhone simultaneously.
As other reviewers pointed out, -yes-, you will initially get the "Not Supported" message upon plugging this into your dock slot, but, the warning is totally bogus and this adapter -will- work 100% on your Apple iPad/iPhone.
Considering the Apple made accessory for this (Camera adapter) doesn't offer all of the features/functions that the SHARKK does and costs 3+X as much, suffice to say, the SHARKK is a great deal and handy add-on to have for your Apple iPad/iPhone.
Overall if your looking for a card reader, save yourself some money and buy this one. It works great with DSLR cameras and with standard digital cameras ( I also tested it with my Sony Cybershot). It transfers your pictures quickly and gives a detailed information bar which tells you the amount of mega pixels the photo is and what camera you took it with!
I hope this review helped you out!
