CCK & iPad2 FAIL - (Accessory Unavailable-The attached accessory uses too much power)
Well, I'm not too impressed right now.
Picked up my new Camera Connection Kit (CCK) tonight and received the error message (see post title) on every camera I tried it on.
DCMI folders located in root.
Latest update (5.1)
This is with direct to camera connections.
Cameras all use micro SD cards, which CCK claims are comparable.
Some cameras use fully charges lithium batteries, others standard AA rechargables.
I'll buy a micro SD to SD converter if I have to, but the whole idea if geting the CCK was to have the photos transfer from camera to iPad with little hassle.
I'm away from home and without my laptop, so an out of the box working solution would have Been ideal.
Please reply ONLY if you've have a similar problem, or know the solution.  Wishful thoughts of exploring further only clutter the topic.
Thanks in advance.

Perhaps if you stated the models of cameras. From what I've read if you're connecting the cameras to the CCK, there are sometimes settings on the cameras you need to change to make it work.
I always use mine just with the SD card - saves my camera battery - and I've not had an issue.
