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 .

Yep...seems i'm getting slow speeds... 600s for 128mb...works out to be 0.213 mb/s

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?
