    Default Connecting SD card from camera to Tab 3

    My friend has a GT-P5210 and would like to transfer photos from her digital camera which uses an SD HC card directly to her Tab 3. I suggested that she gets the following:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/aLLreli-Came...r-21&m1k=vb_ac

    Although the supported devices don't mention the Tab 3, one of the reviewers said that they have used it to transfer files from their laptop/phone to their Tab 3.

    Anyway, I can't seem to get it working so was wondering if I need to get a 30 pin female to microusb adapter in order for it to work.

    Would something like this work:
    30 Pin Female to Micro USB Male | eBay

    If not, is there any other way for her to transfer files directly from her camera's SD card to her Tab 3 without having to copy to a laptop/pc or using a microsd card in an SD adapter?

    Thanks for any help.

    Some progress...

    Managed to connect the SD card to the Tab 3 using the female USB to microUSB adapter which was included with an SD to USB adapter. Seems that problem is resolved.

    However, would it still be possible to use multi-function OTG connecton device (first link above) with the tab 3 if I do get a 30 pin to female microUSB adapter (second link in first post)?

    Isn't she using a Samsung a Tab3 ? You should be able to use an OTG cable and any USB card reader.
    Unless the 10" is different from my Tab3 8" , this is what I do all the time.

    I wasn't aware the Tab 3 10.1 still used the 30 pin connector.

    This is the combination I use with my Tab 3 8.0 for transferring photos from camera

    As soon as the combination of card reader and OTG cable is plugged in the Samsung My File app opens with the card listed.

    All tab 3's have mini usb not the 30 pin proprietary port I think.
