A section listing compatible and incompatible USB card readers would be useful. I've read others are finding success connecting card readers to the USB camera adapter. I tried an older SanDisk ImageMate CF compact flash reader (Model SDDR-91). It doesn't work with the USB camera adapter. This particular model is several years old. Perhaps SanDisk's newer card readers will work.

Does anyone know if you can shoot with a DSLR tethered?

I don't think so - the adapter puts the camera into "mass storage" mode, so it looks like an external hard disk, and the camera will not shoot in this mode.

I find it interesting that this thing supports USB audio. Apparently, it's been tested with USB headphones and microphones with good results.

I imagine apps could also use this for musical instruments.

As I understand it, before if you wanted to tune, let's say a guitar, you were limited to using the mic input. Now you could create apps that record and send audio just like with a computer.

Looks like this has some possibilities.

I just tested nearly all the iPods, and you can import videos from a 5th gen nano and photos from the iPod Touch. The iPod Touch caused some confusion so I had to generate a correction video for the iPod Touch. You can only import videos and photos created on the iPod or iPhone. And since I had no original content on an iPod Touch, it didn't work. But once I tried some screen grabs and saved photos from the web, the iPad discovered those when connected and I was able to import them from the Touch. Videos or Photos imported to the gallery from other devices are not transferable. Interesting restriction!

I think it's very safe to assume that the software support is simply not going to be there.

Just did some more testing with a different USB card reader and the USB camera adapter.. I went to Best Buy (after my Coyotes beat up on the Detroit Red Wings in Game 6) :D and purchased a Rocketfish USB 2.0 High Speed SDHC/Compact Flash Card Reader. I needed a newer CF card reader as my Vaio notebook lacks a compact flash slot and the older model SanDisk CF card reader I've had for years doesn't support UDMA and is way too slow. I had tested the older SanDisk CF reader with the USB camera adapter yesterday and couldn't get it to work as the device "requires too much power" according to the popup error that came up on my iPad.
When I tested the new Rocketfish card reader with the USB adapter, I again got the "USB device requires too much power" popup error. The Photo app did start up, but the CF card would not mount. Bummer! Another fail!
Out of curiousity, I performed one more test. This time, I plugged the Rocketfish card reader into a Dynex powered USB hub and plugged the hub into the iPad USB camera adapter (no other USB devices plugged into the hub). It worked! No "requires too much power" popup error and I was able to import photos from the card reader. Of course this powered USB hub workaround doesn't do me much good as it's not very portable. I don't want to have to carry around a powered USB hub which requires being near a AC power plug. I might as well just plug my Canon 7D directly into the USB adapter for transferring photos to my iPad.

I just tested the Griffin Simplifi Dock as a universal card reader for the iPad and it does work. I was able to import photos from a Sony Memory Stick.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGrB__jHpWc

Keep in mind that the Griffin Simplifi is a powered dock and USB hub. Others have reported that the unpowered universal card readers won't work with the iPad because "The USB Device Requires Too Much Power".

Using the powered USB hub, I was also able to use the Apple USB keyboard after dismissing only one "This USB device is not compatible" message. They did not reappear as they did in the unpowered demo. A demo video is also coming.

I'm curious about the MacBook Air ethernet adapter. I doubt it'll work but still interested.

AppleiPad
Apr 25, 2010, 09:09 PM
It seems as if the limiting factor to a lot of these accessories is that the iPad can only give very limited power to devices. Cameras have their own power, as do powered USB hubs and card readers, and this is why they work.

I also think that devices that require additional power should not be included to the list because the main advantage is portability, and requiring a power adapter means this advantage is lost.

I tested the USB camera adapter with a 16GB USB flash drive plugged into a powered USB hub. My iPad was able to import photos from the DCIM folder contents I had copied onto the flash drive from an SDHC card. No popup errors. My next test will be a 500GB Western Digital My Passport portable USB drive as soon it's finished reformatting as FAT32.

update: No luck trying to read from the WD My Passport 500GB external USB hard drive, even with the powered USB hub. iPad pops up the error, "Attached USB device is not supported".

Forgot to mention I also successfully tested yesterday a full-size HP wireless USB keyboard with the USB adapter. The keyboard is powered with AAA batteries and uses a USB IR receiver that I plugged into the USB camera adapter. I did initially get a warning popup that the device wasn't supported, but it worked fine anyway with no further popup warnings.

I still can't get a USB drive to work with a DCIM folder. Sounds like it may have something to do with the manufacturer and file system.

Yess! I got a Flashdrive to work.

I had to wipe the USB clean, format it in FAT32 to clear out any OEM software or folders that were causing compatibility issues, and viola! The iPad finally saw the DCIM folder!

Griffin iMic WORKS.

Tonight, I tested with complete success the Griffin iMic. Both the stereo out line works as well as the Mic and Line inputs. I was able to record with a simple voice notes program using a Shure Beta 58. The sound quality was fantastic. Being able to have a line in and mic in, opens up lots of doors for recording with the iPad.

Now that's interesting. I believe the iMic uses the generic core audio driver, so perhaps all USB audio interfaces that use this driver will work (most likely)

There are a few good multitrack apps that could use this. Not to mention, the tuners.

(Midi functionality would also be useful. A lot of audio devices use this just for control functions, along with midi audio data.)

I wonder if my Edirol UA-30 will work. As I recall, it uses the generic driver.

It is pretty good, and has a guitar input also.

I wonder how this is going to pan out.

Now that we know that the solid state cards and audio, via USB are supported, it's just up to developers to step up with the apps.

The iPad is a new interface so it may be a while before develpers warm up to it.

But stats like "1 milllion sold" might be an incentive ;)

Not that I expected it to work, but the M-Audio mbox Quattro does not work. I tested with both StudioTrack and Voice Memos.

Once the iMic worked, I was exited about StudioTrack. I was hesitant with a $39 price tag, but I purchased it for the multi track recording option. It crashes with any external mic plugged in when you attempt to record. It has major bugs, and is in desperate need of an update. A program like this has HUGE potential, if they figure out a way to make something like an mbox work. 4 channel simultaneous recording on the iPad? That's a game changer for sure.

I have that app '4 Track' which very nice but limited to a mic.

If they ever update it to use USB it will be really cool with all those sliders and stuff.

You can pay huge amounts of money for an iPad like studio interface, which perhaps soon will cost like $4.99 :D

Actually, the expanded version of 4 Track is like $40 or something, but still it's relatively affordable and (portable) I guess.

note: Are these iPad updates taking a while or is it just me?

This is tremendous news for those with Sony cameras and videocams that utilize the Memory Stick Duos.

Question: Can you confirm that when media gets imported to iPad via the Connection Kit that the files are not touched/converted/scaled/downsized by the iPad?

When I go on vacation, I shoot Sony 720p HD Camcorder Video and Sony 12 Megapixel Still Photos. I need a notebook to move the movies/stills off of the Memory Stick Duo's to open them up for more shooting the next day. Part of my dream of traveling without a notebook is the ability to dump my media onto the iPad in its original, high-quality format without the iPad messing with it and then getting home and pulling it off the iPad in pristine quality.

Any thoughts?

Worked:
- 16 GB SDHC Kingston card (via the SD Card Reader)
- 4 GB SDHC Kingston card (via the SD Card Reader)
- 1 GB SD Kingston Card (via the SD Card Reader)
- Panasonic DMC-ZS7 Point & Shoot Camera (via the USB Camera Connector)
- Nikon D300 DSLR (via the USB Camera Connector)
- Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 external powered Computer Speakers (via USB Camera Connector)
- Sony MRW62E Multi-Card Reader w/ 4 GB Extreme CF Card (via USB Camera Connector)
- 32 GB iPhone 3GS (via USB Camera Connector)

Did Not Work:
- Nothing fell into this category. :)
- UPDATE: 8GB and higher CF cards in a USB card reader.

I don't think I have anything else to test.

Let's be careful about summarily declaring card readers as "compatible". The amount of power the reader requires changes with the type of card. I have yet to find a USB card reader that doesn't run headlong into the "too much power" error trying to read CF cards in the absence of a powered hub.

I was just about to update mine that both my reader and friends reader would not work with his Extreme III 16GB or 32GB CF cards.

My 4GB cards worked fine. He did not have his 8GB cards to test.

What can you transfer when you plug your iPhone into your iPad? Is it just the photos only?

when you plug your iPhone into your iPad via the CCK, on the iPad you'll see whatever is in your iPhone's Camera Roll album

so photos and videos can be transferred

I initially tried a couple USB audio devices all of which gave me the "Not enough power" error message.

I then tried these same devices with a USB powered hub and most of them worked, so you should try a hub if your having problems.

Surprisingly, a Korg PX5D Pandora Guitar and Bass Multi Effects Processor works without a USB hub. It works without the hub because it also has batteries, so it is either running completely off batteries, or is supplementing with USB power (I suspect the former).

It's name "Pandora" shows up in the iPod library volume area (very slick). This device is rather sophisticated.

Also, another cheap USB guitar/Audio interface I got of Ebay works without the hub.

I also have read that that Griffin USB audio device works without a hub


WARNING: a little off topic Audio rant.

I just noticed that 3rd party apps can now access the built-in iPod music library with iOS 4 ('Amazing Slow Downer' latest build now does this).

This was always a HUGE PITA because you had to use wifi or some other idiotic method to transfer sound files to the 3rd party audio app. This made using these apps rather unpleasant.

The rant is that Apple's latest high tech wonder is still running the old OS so it can't do this.

You can add DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) to the list. Makes the iPad a touch screen music server.
