Hello All, I recently purchased a D5000 and am really pleased with the quality of the pictures! Being new to photography with anything other than point and shoot I am having to learn a lot of what I'm sure is commonplace to veteran photographers...but I'm getting there! What I can't seem to figure out is how to get my burst mode to take photos at a speed faster than 1 per second. All of the reviews say that it should be able to take 4 per second. I purchased a SanDisk Extreme 4GB card capable of writing 30MB a second, but to no avail. Regardless of what I try I can only take 1 picture a second. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
There are a variety of options that reduce frame rate. One of them is shutter speed! Others: noise reduction, flash, red-eye reduction, exposure delay, etc. Also, are you sure you're set to Ch (continuous high speed)? (I don't know how to set a D5000, but it's on every other DSLR I've used.)

Thanks for the reply. It is in continuous mode when I shoot. I have tried using AUTO, AUTO with no flash, all of the manual settings, changing the picture sizes and quality. It still shoots 1 frame a second. I read here somewhere about a recall...did that have anything to do with this situation? I'll have to find that thread again. Still trying anything...
