Nothing happens. Nothing- when I have the ipad awake, plug in the SD card reader, and then the card. NADA.The manual says it handles all specs up to SDHC, which is what this one is. Not clear if they meant up to and including, or up to, but NOT including SDHC.Anyone know? If its and including, then theres a problem with either the ipad or the reader. Photos are in .jpg format, or at least thats how my iPhoto on my computer imports them, so it shouldnt be a format issue.Canon EOS Rebel Xsi, ipad 3.2.1, model MB293LL ipad popup wont let me choose my actual OS! see above...|ipad-recognize-sd-reader

Ive had no luck connecting my D300 to my ipad with the camera connection kit. Nothing shows up on the ipad screen, not even an inability to mount box (which I get with my old D200). Ive tried reformatting the memory card, switching between mass storage and PTP, restarting the ipad, waiting the recommended 30 seconds, etc. The D300 shows up immediately when I connect it to my Mac, so theres not a cable issue. Any ideas what the problem may be? Could it be a defective ipad USB camera connector? ipad 64G 3G Mac OS X (10.6.3)...|ipad-recognize-nikon-d300

I tried to access updates for apps I already have on my ipad. But when I click on the install button, it brings up a box that contains iTunes Password. Underneath that is an email address that is not mine but rather and then a blank to insert my password. When I type my actual password, it states that that is not the correct password. When I go into iTunes to buy something, it has my actual email address and will accept the password. I just cant get any updates. HELP! ...|update-apps-recognize-password-ipad

Frustration with a capital F. A couple of weeks ago I bought a new desk top. All my iPods are doing fine with the transfer of my iTunes library to the new computer. I thought everything was fine with my ipad. It synced a couple of new TV shows and some music, but when I plugged it in tonight, after downloading iTunes 10. whatever, it wants to erase everything I have on it. It says it is synced to another library. I had problems with my iPhone also . . . .How do I get my ipad to re-recognize the only library it has ever known and start syncing again?Thanks!
