(more) 2GB card difficulties
Nov 1, 2006

My delight in getting to know my LX2 is tempered somewhat by some issues with the cards I've bought, may be my fault for being a cheapskate, but a 2GB pretec 133x SD card is hideously slow in downloading images, I know connecting camera to computer is inherently slower than using a card reader, but 42 minutes for 85 raw files and their accompanying jpegs...?? my belkin 15-way card reader won't recognise the card at all, so i bought a more up to date card reader made by transcend, which doesn't work at all with any computer or any card!

So now I've learnt my lesson about trying to save money where I shouldn't, could someone who's gone the sensible route be kind enough to steer me in the right direction and tell me what card and reader I should have gone for in the first place?
Many thanks
