- No, it isn't that - it's getting the KDE4.x system to "see" the 4GB FAT32 cards at all, that's the problem. Once it deigns to "see" a card - after 8-12 minutes (but not always) - it will copy off, at about 20% of the speed it does in XP-SP3 (dual-booting on this box, so same hardware.) The older FAT16 2GB or under SD (not SDHC) cards, used in an old SD-only card reader open immediately - well, 3-4 seconds - in either XP or KDE4.x/PCLOS.
There was a problem almost identical to this in KDE-3.5 a long time back, but it was solved in one of the system updates. I've had no problems with these cards for the last couple of years, as I'd been using the YouCanToo backup repos to stay with KDE3.5, in which everything worked exceeding-well - apart from being able to use new versions of apps.. Had been assuming that, give KDE4.x a year or two to shake-down, there'd be no hassles changing over... So with this latest new PC - changed over - and it's "like deja-vu all over again", so to say... Scoundrel
- Haven't been "away", mate - just KDE-3.5-ing - so for the last year-plus, there's been nothing to ask about or discuss on this now all-KDE4-forum. Have been dropping-in from time to time to check on the reprobates, scoundrels, and other wild-mad desperados...! Just18
- Remarkable - you're keeping well - looking younger all the time... Been wondering how you do it....
