Many of those features were disabled by iOS 4.3. Just FYI. Evidently they reduced the power level supported by the Camera Connection Kit. Many people found that their USB card readers no longer functioned. – Syclone0044 Nov 9 '11 at 0:52

Apple only allows importing files. You are not able to export to a SD card.
