do u want to say how much time it would take to transfer pics taken from ur cam to computer than it depends upon the resolution you use if its a heavy pic than 1 pic would take around 15- 20 seconds....

The main thing here is the speed of the xd card you have bought. Otherwise it depends on how you are transferring the pics to your computer.

1. using data-cable is the slower. May take anything from 35-60 mins
2. Using card reader. Still goes through USB port. USB2.0 can trasfer around 20-40 mins while USB1.0 can go from 35-60.
3. using integrated card reader on the pc is the fastest.

I use a 2gig sd card @60x and it takes anything from 15-35 mins to transfer around 800mb-1.5 gig of data.

Data transfer speed for XD card is 3 to 5 Mbytes/sec. Check your card's speed and calculate the timings (1 GB = 1024MB). Also check the speed supported by your reader. If the reader is slower than your card speed it will be the speed to be considered.
