By doing a little searching, I have learned that a recent update on windows XP service pack 3 maybe the problem I am having. I went out and bought a cardreader and although my computer recognized the reader, it did not acknowledge the card.

Did you try another card in it? The only reason it won't see the card as a drive letter is if the whole thing is bad.

Try restarting too. But in Windows explorer, you should see a bunch of new drive letters, one for each type of card the reader can handle. Mine takes 4 different kinds of cards and there is a letter for each of them.

If in Explorer, you see the drive letter, slip the card in and make sure it is plugging in, then there should be a plus sign beside the letter. Expand that and the camera file folders should be inside, click on them to find the files.

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

I would imagine you're correct. Now that I re-read things and use my brain, who ever heard of a 3g card. :oops::lol::lol:

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.

NO however it costs around £5 for a card reader. YOu have your camera, hooked up via USB on your desk, knock the cable accidently and your camera lands on the ground in bits. Compare that to the speed of a £5 card reader.

Its always my #1 piece of advice, is to get a CR as accidents can and will happen :(

Hmm, my card reader cost $28 at Wal-Mart. And I totally agree with you about the cord in the camera. It happened to me once. But I already suggest that in my first post I believe, about not using the cord in the camera. And you just would not believe how many people do not know about card readers. Is there anything in the camera manual about using them? I don't remember anything. It explains how to use the cord though. ;)

Recently I have gone from 1 gig to 3 gig ram

On my PC I need to add RAM in matched pairs or the RAM speed slows down. You might want to try just doing your download with your original RAM configuration and see if it speeds up.
