    Question Slow Smartmedia transfer times?

    I just got a finepix f601 and i notice that transfering the data from the smartmedia card to computer takes a long time eventhough i'm using a smartmedia card reader that is built in to my laptop itself..... it takes 10mins to transfer 128mb....is this normal? Anyway to improve transfer time?

    All the USB readers haves 900kb per second transfer .
    If you are lower than that speed , just buy one ZIO USB reader .

    It looks that its time to get one external reader ,specialy if you work with 128 megs cards .

    Hmm...guess my toshiba smartmedia reader cannot make it....no help from toshiba themselves...so should i get a pcmcia adapter or usb reader? I have a feeling pcmcia would be faster...is this true?
