Per john, the c5d simply accepts incoming data if i'm not mistaken. Therefore, if i understand properly, the ipad would never know that the c5d specifically is connected. Rather, it probably detects the cck. This would indicate a problem with the cck or ipad. As your iphone does the same thing, tgat makes me suspect the cck, even if you've tried more than one. Maybe the connections aren't firm enough? Are you ccks apple brand? Do they feel tight? Are they the version with the cable attached or just the small adapter?
I tried every combination, hooking up and unhooking different cables and CCKs, and going between the iPad, the iPhone, and the Mac mini. Only with the second C5D could I eliminate the possibility of the original C5D.
Having both CCKs not working? They are both Apple CCKs in Apple boxes. That would be extraordinary, but possible. But then only when I used a third new cable did the iPad start working, with the same CCK. Now the original USB cable, still with same the CCK, is now working. Apparently this was the defining moment of the problem.
At this point, I do think it is connection related. How intermittent it has been would point that direction. I do not know if it is actually the CCKs. But still that would be the only reasonable explanation. I have received a new CCK for the iPad in the mail today thinking that this may help.
