can someone point me to an internal express card reader for a PC. I have googled it, but I dont think I am wording it right, because I just get PCMI express video cards as a result.

I want to try that instead of using the USB from camera to computer. just to see if that works.

Dave,

Isn't this the one that requires rebooting to change out media? I've been waiting for a hot-swap one, but didn't think there was one.

And by the way, why didn't you send a link to a local shop that carried it? ;-)

....and besides, as a former Windows user, I know that rebooting is sorta like cleansing the palette, 'ya know? He might enjoy that routine. ;)

Tried my s x s card in my new mbp today for the first time.
Transferred about 13 min of video in about 1 min.

ok, I have tried it on three different computers, and its still slow as ever. I am really leaning towards camera related.
