    I have a Canon EOS 20D, what would be the easiest way to transfer the RAW Images from the camera or from the memory card to my computer?

    Right now I am just sticking the memory card into my printer and then dragging and dropping the folders from my memory card to my Hard Drive......


    How do you do it?

    I'm using a card reader. I select all, copy and paste to a folder on my computer. Works much faster than using Canon's software and hooking the camera up to the computer. :D

    Depending on the speed of the connection on your computer, I believe, technically speaking, the two previous methods are exactly the same. Either way, you're adding a new deice to your computer and then dragging and dropping the files

    I put mine in my printer - and it uses its software to transfer them. Much faster than via the camera

    Thank you everyone!


    I'll stick to the Drag & Drop method from card reader...
