Quite true, but some of us have lots of time, and other alternatives, if
we are in a hurry. I can transfer on the laptop, or my wife's computer,
then copy across the LAN, and the time difference is minimal, and I have
the data backed up in the process.
For transferring 30 or 40 pictures, it hardly matters.

Somehow I wouldn't think that transferring an 8GB card across a USB 1.1
interface is something I would want to do.

except that you said your desktop won't acknowledge it. that's not
what i would consider working, but i guess you think otherwise.

No problemo. Simply format both cards so that they only have
256MB partitions. :)

Well, since I have a card reader on my printer (on the desktop), and in
the CPU box on the desktop, it really isn't a significant factor. I use
it on the laptop, which doesn't have an internal card reader.
So, yes, it works for me.
