If it's only busy when using your flash it's the flash and not the memory.

My xti says busy too. Drives me nuts when I miss good shots. I'll shoot a few pics, then suddenly it's just BUSY again.
It's not the flash. I turned off the flash and it still does it.
It does it in every setting.
Sometimes when I turn the camera completely off its like I've reset the camera and it allows me to shoot again.
I can't seem to find a pattern of why it chooses to be BUSY.

I'm a novice and trying to learn to turn off auto. This is frustrating, so I gladly welcome all comments!

Did you get any replies? Did you determine how to get rid of the BUSY sign?

It's the speed that is important, and not the size. What speed card did you get?

With Sandisk, it will either be 4, 6 or 10.

I a not sure if an XTi can utilize anything faster than a 4, but I am not sure.

That's the high ISO noise reduction he's talking about.

ahh then yes, I agree...it must be the pop up flash, not catching up in recycle time.

Plus dont forget the "unofficially recognised" Canon issue with the onboard flash and wireless flash control. This really brings out the Busy factor.

As others have said, I pushed down the onboard flash and use a a Bowens Pulsar TX radio communicator. That cures it, as no onboard flash and the wireless is no longer IR but now Bowens radio control. Likewise I'm sure the Y 622's would do the same thing.

I dont know wich delivered mot of the cure, the removal of the on board flash, or stopping using the 7Ds Infra Red wireless communicator.
Case of dont know, don't really care!
It was just so dam annoying, perfect pose and up comes "BUSY" wtf!

NB I was using a SanDisk SDCFX-016G-X46 16GB/60MB/s Extreme CompactFlash Memory Card.
So 60 MB/s is fast enough just for Large JPEGs, it a good make of card, also considering the 7D does have dual digic 4 processors for high speed Servo mode and I am only in ONE shot AF!
Conclusive fact for me : Turn off Pop up flash, and stop wireless Flash control and hey presto it runs like a rocket!

My 10D dinosaur does that when writing to the card. Buffer full, and I'm stuck waiting for it to write.

The XTi shouldn't be that bad, get a fast memory card and see what happens.

Are you shooting tethered by any chance? That happens to me with my 5D MKII, when the camera communication with EOS software gets disrupted
