Need to get files from an SD Card into iPhone and/or iPad. The SD card readers I have found will only read files that are photos or video.  This seems to be more of a phone firmware limitation than an accessory limitation.  I'd like to be able to read any type of file, but I specifically need to read CSV files.  

The scenario is this: we have a flight data recording system writing to an SD card.  If the pilot is working remotely, he needs to send data back to headquarters upon landing.  Many pilots have iPhones so we want them to be able to use their iPhone to grab the data from the SD and email it back to HQ.
