    I plugged my iphone into my iPad via the new camera kit and it isn't recognizing it.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    I use PhotoShare+ to move photos in my iPhone 3GS Photo Library directly to the iPad. And i use Camera for iPad to make the iPhone a slave camera so that it transfers the photo to the iPad the moment I snap it.

    I think the camera kit is designed to import photos from a camera or memory card.

    Just so everyone knows you CAN indeed import your pictures from your iPhone to your iPad. The thing that I wasn't doing correctly is having my iPhone open and unlocked. After playing with it for awhile i came to understand that if you put your iPhone to sleep ( where you have to swipe to get back into the home screen) and then connect the iPhone to the camera connection kit then your ipad will import your pics from your iPhone library.
