    I am reposting this at the suggestion of applespider in this forum.


    So last week I posted in the design and graphics thread a question on how to increase performance on my computer for photo editing. I am running a Pb g4 1.33 with 1 gb of ram. And I notice when ever I transfer photos on cf card reader that EVERTHING slows toa crawl. So I opened activity moniter and saw that iphoto was using upto 95% of my cpu. After all the pics transferred I closed Iphoto and reopened it. With iphoto just sitting open not doing anything but exisiting as an open application it used between 50%-80% of my cpu.

    Is this just a fact of G4 life? I cant buy up right now.

    Thanks

    Don't know. It takes no CPU usage with mine. Is it only when the card reader is attached? Does it run normal any other time?

    it freezes by just being open w/ or w/out the card reader.
