Yes, I also noticed terribly slow import times from my 150x 2G SD card  
with some 8MP jpegs. It's like at least 5 times slower than normal  
file level copy. I guess what happens is that dK opens each image to  
read Exif info and possibly extract preview. It also updates metadata  
on each file. Still ACDSee (on Windows) does similar thing incredibly  
faster than dK.
