Guys..


When i download a picture from my Lexar 1 GB CF 80x to my PC Picture folder it hangs.:cry: Is it becoz of high resolution of my D70s setting 3008x2000 NEF RAW? or my PC 512 DDR2 RAM , 256MB PCI -Ex Graphic Card , 3.2GHz Win Xp Home Edition? I can't view normaly like Jpeg format. I must use Nikon View. Pls advise..:embrass:

6 MB files from you D70 shouold not be a problem for any PC that is configured for processing digital images. Your PC has a horrible configuration. You should not have skimmed on RAM.

You have to use Nikon View or some progtrams like ADCSee with the right plugins, Adobe Bridge or Photoshop to view/process the RAW files.

However, if you do not know anything about RAW processing and DI, better off shooint JPEG.

Just upgrade your ram to around 2GB and use a dedicated memory card reader :).

Hi,

The external USB2.0 CF card-reader will probably do the best for speeding up the transfer; I think D70s is only at USB1.1 speed so try not to download directly from the camera.

Printers usually use USB1.1, so you will experience slow copying or downloading even if the built-in card reader is capable of higher speeds.
