Default Need help: D2x download speeds are intolerable

I need some help.

I have a Nikon D2X, and when I use an 8mb card and download photos directly from the camera to my computer, it takes a looooooong time. Like three days a long time.

Would a card reader help this to happen faster?

Thanks!

In fact, it is so slow, that the computer says (not responding) next to the images on the camera.

But, something is not right if it takes that long.

If you are using a USB 1.1 connection that may be the problem right there. Are you using USB 2.0? If so, a card reader won't help much if you are still using a USB 1.1 connection.

To be honest, I've NEVER tried to transfer images from DC to PC.

I have been using card-readers all the way from day-1 since I owned a DC.
