the setup I have now takes about 17-24 min to load 4GB card.
Ok that IS quite slooowwwww.
I'm 4gb too and I think full it only takes about 5 mins or about the sametime it takes to get a tea.
Agree with Gordon...Faster card/faster reader
should do the trick.
Not sure what type multi reader is built in to my HP G70 it has a "few" bells and whistles so probably a half decent one.
Actually for what it cost I'm surprised I can't program it to go out and take pics for me...lol
