HT4101 I can't use my lightning to USB camera adapter to connect my new Sony Cybershot DSC-W730 to my new ipad Air. It says the connected device needs too much power. Any ideas what to do?

Has anyone a solution to my newly purchased lightning to USB camera adapter not connecting my Sony Cybershot DSC-W730 to my new ipad Air? It says the connected device requires too much power.

Use the camera's SD card.

  • Can you connect a usb SuperDrive if you use a lightning to usb camera adapter and a usb hub?

    I was just wondering if ypu could connect a usb SuperDrive if you use the lightning to usb camera adapter, a usb hub, and then plug the SuperDrive into the hub. Will it work to play disks, or movies, or something?

    No, drive consume too much power.
    Try using a wireless flash drive.

    You can transfer photos outside of iTunes. I do it all the time. THat said, i have a 50/50 success rate with them. I'd avoid sandisk and kingston, their bundled software triggers the 'too much power' warning.
    I've had mixed luck with lexar, some work, some don't.
    I did have good luck with an older 4 gig geek squad one.
    Look for drives without software on them, without bright LED lights and I haven't gotten any larger than 4 gig to work, but that may just be me.
    For a less troublesome way? h onestly, I use a SD card that I've formatted with the DCIM folder. I've never had one of them trigger the 'too much power' warning. Just make sure they're not SDXC. those don't work.

  • HT4101 When connecting my camera to my IPad mini via lightniing to usb camera adapter,I get "The attached accessory uses too much power" .Any solutions?

    When I connect my Ipad mini to my camera via lightning to usb camera adapter all i get is a message "The attached accessory uses too much power."Any solutions

    It depends on the camera, but some have a special mode for offloading photos but not trying to charge the camera through the USB port. For others, you may have to pull out the SD card (if that's what it uses) and use the Lightning to SD card reader instead.
    Maybe if you told us what camera you are connecting, somebody here with the same model can give you more specific information.

  • Can i use the lightning to usb camera adapter for sony cybershotdsc-w380

    DDoes anyone know how to use a lightning to sub camera adapter for a Sony cyber shot doc-w830

    This discussion may help.
    It mostly depends on the camera. Some cameras have a Transfer Mode, which does not attempt to charge while transferring pictures. does yours have such a setting?
    Alternatively you can try to plug a powered USB hub between the camera and the USB connector so the power is provided by the HUB rather than the iPad.
    Other than that, yes the Memory card reader may be a better option assuming your Camera uses Secure Digital (SD) type memory cards.

    When synchronizing my iphone4 on the computer it errors out when optimizing the photos and shuts down iTunes.  Any idea what to do to get the synch working?

    OKay, here is the deal. You cannot change the location of encrypted files nor can you share them with other machines. There is no file server for iTunes so even if you export the movie index from iTunes to an external volume, each time you reboot your computer itunes has to reindex the external drive every time you want to access the files. The second you run your mobile computer without the external drive or try to access the HD movies from another device or another user on the same network, the indexing gets out of synch. The entire process is self defeating regardless. The HD movies are encapsulized by apple to stream to your devices via iCloud and NOT via Cloud. Only your TV can play 1080p. That single file you download from iTunes has mutiple versions of the same video in the capsul, one version for each type of apple device. There are no 1080p apple devices except for the Apple TV. When you buy a movie you are buying a license and not the movie. It's going to get worse with all the new copywrite laws. Already you cant share any apple devices with other itunes accounts. Your airport express just stopped streaming music to all users on the local home sharing Cloud. Only the one user for each device and soon only airplay speakers connected directly to the device. No more passthru via your TV and no more file sharing with other accounts on the same wi-fi. All the ISPs are doing the same thing. And soon everybody will be buying their phones and TV's and iPads from the cabble guy.
    Apple has done a poor job of educating the consumer as to the difference between the Cloud and iCloud. They are not the same at all.

    The iPod 3g will only support iOS up to 4.2.1 and nothing beyond that.

  • What is the exact technical difference between "Lightning to USB Camera Adapter" and "Lightning to USB Cable"

    Mainly I am interested in attaching the iPhone to a receiver (or car etc.) to play music.
    Both the "Lightning to USB Cable" and the "Lightning to USB Camera Adapter" seem to do the trick. So what is the exact technical difference between the two items?
    When connected to a receiver, is the iPhone the USB Master in both cases? Is the USB "Audio Device Class" standard used to transmit audio?

    Thanks for all the answers! I think I should specify the use case much more clearly. Sorry for not having done this earlier.
    Use Case 1:
    When I connect the iPhone to the receiver I can use the Lightning to USB, because the receiver has a female type A, just like e.g. a PC or like the charger. So I would agree that the Receiver must be the USB host, and the iPhone the USB device. This works just fine in my case, with iPhone and iPad.
    In this case, the audio goes from the device to the host, or "Audio-in".
    Use Case 2:
    A friend of mine has a small device that converts USB to Toslink. This thing has a female Mini USB Type A, which is typically used at the receiving side of a USB connection. This device can be connected e.g. to a Mac, and then the Mac can output audio via this device to receiver which accepts optical Toslink signals.
    In this case, the audio goes from the host to the device, or "Audio-out".
    It is this use case 2 that I am unsure about:
    a) Can the Lightning to USB cable be used in this case (assuming that I find the necessary non-standard adapters to actually connect the USB ports)? This would mean that the iPhone can act as a USB host with the Lightning to USB cable.
    b) I know that the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter does convert the iPad into an USB host, otherwise it could not read data from a camera. So could this adapter also be used to produce "Audio out" to a USB device that supports receiving music?
    If yes, would this also work with an iPhone (as pointed out in another answer, the iPhone does nor support reading pictures from a camera)?

    Cannot use device
    IOUSB Device:  The connected device requires too much power.
    This is the message I get when connecting a camera on binoculars to ipad.  Is there a work around the camera will also load to a SD card

    There are a few options:
    1. If your camera supports it, you can try a low power mode, or picture transfer mode so it does not attempt to charge from the iPad. some cameras have this.
    2. You can add a powered USB hub between the iPad and the camera, so the camera uses the usb hub's power instead of trying to charge from the iPad.
    3. You can get the SD card reader and read the photos direcltly off of the card instead of through the camera.

  • HT4101 What does it mean when it says that the USB device requires too much power?

    What does it mean when it says that the USB device requires too much power, when using the ipad lightening pin camera connection kit?

    Just that. The iPad allocates a certain amount of power to that port. If the device you're trying to plug in wants more than the iPad is willing to give, it'll trigger that warning.
    If it's something that you just must hook up you can try using a powered USB hub, but results are mixed at best.
    What are you trying to hook to your iPad?

    Some cameras are designed to use the power suppled via USB when they're plugged into another device, usually a PC or laptop. The iPad does not supply sufficient power for a camera. The iPad Camera kit allows for either a camera to be plugged in only for the transfer of photos, not as a power sourse, or the removal of the SD Card from a camera so it can transfer photos as an alternative.
