    So I had been using a 1GB Lexar card for a good 6 months, it worked flawlessly. I have also been using the Canon Utilities to rip my pics off of my CF card, via my USB reader.

    I lost my Lexar card a month or so ago, and bought a new SanDisk UltraII 2GB card. Ever since I have been using it, I have had nothing but troubles ripping my pics off the card. Sometimes I will come home, plug the card in.....and it rips them all. Sometimes it will only download the pics not in RAW format, and leave the RAW pics on the card. Sometimes it won't retrieve ANY pics. I can pull the card out, reopen the program, unplug the USB connector..........basically jump through flaming hoops.......and it will sometimes suddenly work. Nothing consistant about anything I do, it just works sometimes.

    Is there any program anyone else runs that is quicker? Or is there something I might have done wrong? Don't think there could be, but its worth a shot.

    BTW I use Zoombrowser EX to rip the pics......

    why "rip" the pics, just click and drag from windows.
