Incredibly slow uploading photos to CF card from computer
I have a Canon S45 Powershot and a notebook computer running Windows 98 SE. I tend to download all my photos to my computer and later upload the best to a freshly formatted (via the camera) CF card after which I take the card to a camera shop for printing. The problem is, whilst I can download photos from the CF card (via a CF card reader) at a decent speed, uploading the pictures takes forever (1 picture typically 1-2 minutes). Is there a reason for this?
Also, whilst I can download from the CF card to the computer via a CF card reader I can't seem to upload to the CF card via a CF card reader. Rather I have to connect the camera to the computer directly. Is there any way to avoid connecting the camera?
Thanks for any help.
