While this is not specific to this forum (and I did post at dpreview), the size of my D2x raw files makes this story relevant here...

Of course, it's possible that I may be the only member of this forum who was this out-of-touch, but just in case...

I had been using the built-in cf card reader on the front panel of my pc, and it was taking me up to 30 minutes to transfer a 1G card.

I finally bought a Lexar firewire reader (about $35-45) yesterday, and dumped a full 1G Extreme III in just over a minute last night. I understand that the USB 2.0 reader is almost the same speed.

Duh. I just feel stupid for waiting so long to upgrade.
