I have an issue with the import process of Lightroom 3.4.1.
So far, I was importing my Nikon D700 Raw nef file by reading CF through a USB connected Card reader. it was working well. Now, my CF content is first copied while in travell on an Ipad2. When I connect the ipad2 via apple cable to computer (win7 64bits) and try to import from ipad2, I haveno preview of images (the import will still work if lauched). If I look by Windows explorer and Ipad2 DCIM folder, I see a preview of each NEF file. Seem that LR cannot communicate well with Ipad2 for import preview ?

We use Image Capture (an API provided by Apple) to read from the iPad, and apparently they're not providing us with the photo preview. You can launch the Image Capture application to see if it retrieves the previews. If it doesn't, Lightroom probably doesn't have any way of getting them either, unfortunately.
