    Whenever I transfer files from my card reader (built in on my printer) it takes forever! When I transfer MP3s it takes about 3/4 the length of the song to transfer it. So if I have a 4 minute song I'm transfering onto my SD card it takes about 3 minutes. It sucks! I know it's not the card because my old lappy had a card reader built in and it was pretty fast. I think it's the printer's card reader, I dont get it though... I have a Lexmark 3-in-1 printer. It's fairly new, has like a 6-in-1 card reader, flat bed scanner, LCD screen to control it all, etc. So it seems decent enough to transfer faster than that.
    And I was thinking USB1 maybe? No, all I have is 2.0 on my computer so that's not it, I dont think.

    Any ideas?

    How fast does bluetooth transfer files? Might go that route. Any additional software needed to do bluetooth transfers?

    I have an older HP1315 color printer with a card reader built in. It is as slow as molasses in winter reading and transferring from the card. I bought a SanDisk 8n1 stand alone USB reader. Much, much better.

    If you're just transferring MP3s, you can use Windows Media Player to xfer via the USB cable. Bluetooth will probably be a little slow (but probably faster than your card reader, based on your description).

    You might want to consider Card Export , too, which turns your Treo into an SD card reader. Card readers have the advantage of being faster (the Treo is usb1.1) and typically supporting multiple media types, but I like not having to keep up with an external reader. The trial version is fully functional, so can't hurt to try.
