SOLVED: Importing images from CF cards into iPad
Dec 13, 2013


I bought an iPad Air to use as a portable image viewer and lightweight editor thinking I could use one of the rare Lightning to CF reader dongles. Turns out that the only company I trusted to buy from stopped selling the device. Turns out, it is easy to read any kind of memory card. You just need enough power to do it.

You will need a powered USB hub, the USB Camera Connection kit and of course your card reader. The picture should say it all. Here it is, the iPad reading images from one of the most power hungry CF cards made, the 1GB Microdrive!

Check back later when I finish my battery powered version of this project.
