What a slow frustrating process downloading the D800 images has been today! I started off trying to use my card reader & finally resorted to plugging the camera directly into the computer using the USB cord provided & it made all the difference in the worls-Looks like for now that is the quickest was to import these Mega Files!

Also another thing to think about is if you are still using USB 2.0, your transfer limit will be about 20-22mb/s. So Files will take at least 2 sec. to download. I would recommend getting USB 3.0 adapter for computer and a USB 3.0 card reader. Then you will be transfering pics as fast as you CF/SD card can read...
Thanks-I ordered an Extreme Pro CF card but it wont arrive until Monday and so I am using an extreme pro SD card & an extreme CF card until they arrive. I watched the Nikon Promo Youtube & the guy recommended using the new USB style cord that ships with the D800 & when I switched to that -it all went much faster. I ahve a very fast imac & use LR but there was a marked difference between importing D700 vs: D800 images. Thanks for the info.!
Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
