View Full Version : Help troubleshoot camera connector issue

May 26, 2011, 04:57 AM

I have just got a second hand iPad (original). I have also got a knock-off usb connector off ebay.

I want to be able to sync my Canon 40D with the iPad. This should be no problem google tells me. The iPad is running 4.3.3

I plug in the connector & camera into the iPad, turn on the camera - nothing happens.
I put the memory card into a usb memory card reader and connect it to the ipad - nothing happens.
I plug my iPhone into the iPad - nothing happens.
I plug a Apple USB keyboard into the iPad - nothing happens.

Using the same connector I plug the USB keyboard into my iPhone - I get a warning that this accessory is not for the iPhone.

I'm not really sure where to go from here, instinct is telling me that the knock-off usb connector from ebay is the weakest link here but as the iPhone threw a wobbly when I connected it I'm thinking maybe that's actually working and the problem is with the iPad...

Can anyone please suggest any additional troubleshooting here?
