Default Compact Flash Card for cp5000

I use a 512mb Viking CF card in my Nikon cp5000. In Fine resolution, it takes 10-12 seconds to write to the card and be ready for another shot.

In Raw, it takes 22-24 seconds.

I primarily use this camera for underwater photography and lose a lot of shots waiting on the camera to record the shot.

Is this normal timing for other cp5000 users? Is there a setting that I've overlooked that could cause the slow write time?

What brands of CF cards work faster in the same camera?
