The update on this project is long overdue... it had actually been completed at about the same time when i got my new toy, the EOS405D a couple of weeks back. Had intended to post some of its showdown pixes taken earlier today. Shot them in raw format for the 1st time, but when i attempted to transfer the pixes from the SD card to my PC, the memory card was read as blank/blank empty? Took some sample shots using raw-jpeg format split & tried again ~ only the .jpg ones were successfully read? I'm using bundled EOS Digital Solution software, it should be equipped to detect the raw format.... *dunno what's the problem here... arrgggh! xp ... anyone care to enlighten this noob? thanks in advance!

ha, u finally back liao brada! hope u're not starting to miss taiwan already... hehe... i think it's my pc problem... tried reinstalling software = same problem... tried transferring a loi's hub = ok... difference btw his pc & mine is that i'm still using the lo-speed USB version 1.0... doesn't seem to work when i'm trying to transfer RAW format pixes from my camera... no problem with the jpeg though... -_-
it's a sign that i need to invest in a mac book liao...

yaya...hahah...kinda miss that place. LOL...

don't ever buy apple product! it is just a gimmick. lol...for the same price, u can get better PC or lappie for at least 2-3 fold the performance of an apple Mac book or computer. value for money bro! save more dough for your lenses not apple products! read why mac sucks in my blog link. tho it is an old article, but till today, there's still no apple product that could surpass PC components. =P

for photo editing u will need at least a dual core with 2GB ram to run resource hungry apps like PS and its massive collection of filters.

btw, how big is the raw file? what's the format? i think there's a limitation on the Harddisk format for large file transfers. Try renaming the raw file to something else or zip it prior transferring them. Not sure if it helps tho.

hmm.. sounds like i'm going to need a decently specced lappie.... raw file for a 12.2M pixel shot is around 10+Mb... just can't seem to get it transferred straight from the card... need to transfer to another pc, copy to thumbdrive, & copy into my pc... it works that way,... that means if i want to shoot using raw format, i need to transfer the images via somebody else' pc.. then baru transfer to mine... banyak mafan... -_-

hmm... probably limitation of using USB1.0? gonna try out transferring with a card reader.. hopefully that works... =)
