    How much faster are USB Compact Flash card readers vs the USB port on
    digital cameras if my computer is USB1.1. I have a Canon S45 supporting
    USB1.1.

    Would I get much improvement with a Compact Flash card reader on USB1.1
    or would I only see a difference with USB2.

    Can the Compact Flash card readers write back to the Flash at faster
    rates than going through the camera? This would be handy for editing
    and cropping images and then writing them back to the CF card to bring
    to a lab for prints.

    If your computer (built in port) is only 1.1 then you will gain a
    significant improvement by buying a PCI to USB adapter. It will give
    you several 2.0 USB ports to use. Then add a 2.0 universal card reader.
    You should see a large increase in speed over the "Camera to
    computer" speed. At least I do.
