Other Thoughts:If you have an iPad, you need this. It doesn't just give you a way to get photos into your iPad. There are other, more cumbersome ways but if you don't do it that often then those ways are adequate. No, essentially this gives your iPad a USB port, something it can really use. If you get it, you'll wonder why it's not standard equipment.
Other Thoughts:Got this item and have been using it for a few weeks. Not sure what everyone is talking about. It works fine.
<br/>The unit looks and feels cheap. The only bad news here is that you are getting what you pay for.
<br/>A few things
<br/>- The unit interferes with the apple Ipad case. You have to take the case off to make it fit snugly enough. The reader will plug in with the case on and it feels like it is plugged in all the way but it does not read the files.
<br/>- The images have to be in a folder called DCIM.
<br/>- Plug unit in and go to Photos.
<br/>- You will see the headers Photos, Albums, Events and Places on the top of the Photo app.
<br/>- Plug in SD card and a new heading called Camera comes up and it shows the images on your SD card.
<br/>You can now see thumbnails. As with all of these you will need to import onto the Ipad to see larger images.
<br/>I have tried this with 2GB up to 16GB cards from my cameras as well as friends. Works every time.
<br/>Update- upgraded to iOS 4.2 and now it does not work
