I shot a wedding last night and I am having problems transferring images. Recently I have gone from 1 gig to 3 gig ram and I have also had to reset my settings on both my 40ds. Everything has gone well to this point bur last night went to transfer images which usually takes about 10 to 20 minutes (never really timed it) for about 500 images, to maybe 1 image every 5 minutes. I used both cameras with the same results. Anyone have any suggestions?

Yeah, buy a card reader. Better to remove the card every time than to plug a wire into the camera and risk breaking/weakening the plug or giving the camera some virus off the computer. And card readers are cheap and much, much faster.

I just don't understand what happened, something must have changed from the last download to now. I Knew Card readers were probably much better, but I am still puzzled.

Maybe restart the computer? I honestly don't think anyone knows whay they do these things. They seem to have a mind of their own. :)

Try K-mart or Wally World. They are common. :)

I really can't understand anyone not having a card reader who is at all serious about digital photography.

Card Reader is the way to go.

Since you switched from the 1g to 3g card, maybe the 3g is a slower card. They have cards with different read and write speeds. Or were you shooting RAW for the wedding and usually shoot jpeg?

Not everyone is as serious as some of the diehards in this forum, and some people may not even know about card readers. And then some are serious and still prefer hooking up the camera.

I have a card reader, but if I'm not in a hurry, I will use the USB cable. I think it keeps dust out of the camera.

Thanks to those who seemed to want to offer assistance... In reading through this forum, I have noticed those who just seem to want to tear anyone one down that is seeking help, they are more vocal than the caring type, but fortunately far fewer than those who want to share their knowledge. Thanks again.

I was under the impression that the OP was referring to computer RAM, not CF card size.
