Bring on the USB 2

Since I take all my photos now in Canons RAW format, each picture is approximately 4 megabytes in size. It really doesn’t take long to fill up my 256mb card, and the real bummer was the process of transferring the pictures to the computer.

So in an attempt to speed up the process I recently purchased the USB2 Sandisk 6-in-1 card reader and a IOGear 5 port USB2 card.

The install couldn’t have been simpler; XP recognized all the devices and no software was needed.

I plan to compare the speeds between the built-in USB1 and the new USB2 reader, just to see how much of an improvement there could be.
