Image Synch / Download & Sharing Circles Greyed Out


I have just purchased the Ricoh GRii which I have hooked up to the Image Synch app on my iPad. The images are transferring okay but when I double tap an image and then place a finger on the image to send it to my camera roll/photos nothing happens with those little circles on the screen. They seem greyed out - I have asked Ricoh what is the problem but they were about as helpful as a chocolate teapot. Anyone can help with this out there ?

Are the transferred photos already in the leftmost tab of the app? If so, then they should already be on your iPad, in the app specific folder. I don't think the app will let you move them to the camera roll folder; you'd have to use a file manager for that.

An easy way to test this would be the open the app without connecting to the camera. If the photos are there, you should be good.

BTW if you search the forums, one of our forum members recently developed an ios app that's more user friendly than this one for file transfers.

Are you referring to the "Pentax Photo Sync" app discussed in this thread:

Alternative choice for Ricoh Image Sync App - Pentax Photo Sync -
