Slow, Slow Import to Computer Speeds. Lightroom 3 or Other Issues to Blame?
Nov 13, 2010

It just took me 63 minutes to import 3GB (134 images from a Canon 5DII) from a CF card. There's obviously something wrong, but I'm not sure which of the many variables are causing it.

I import to Lightroom 3.2 (using 'copy' and the 'embedded & sidecar' options), Windows 7, Sandisk Ultra CF cards, a card reader of unknown pedigree and a USB 2 port.

I'd be very grateful for any advice on how to speed up the process as it takes me half the night to empty 3 or 4 cards after a shoot.
