Try batching while you are away from the computer....no waiting or delays...ready when you get back.

You missed an important detail... What spec is your PC?

I use DPP to shoot teathered on a Dell Latitude laptop, it's a dual core centrion with 1Gb or ram.. Takes 20-30 seconds tops to do a raw-jpeg conversion. Most of them probably take less than 10 seconds.

You're not running Vista are you? I do know that DPP is a real pig on Vista, or at least it was when i tried out the Vista pre-release on my laptop.. That lasted about 4 days, I found all sorts of things that didn't work and restored a backup, back to XP!

Cheers, Me.

It sometimes takes me that long, too. For me, it depends on what other applications I have running. If I've got Photoshop and a few other things going at the same time, I have a very long wait. Even when I don't, though, conversion is a bit slow. Probably because my computer is kind of old now.

I suggest seeing how long it takes if you try the conversion right after rebooting your machine without starting any other applications.

DPP is taking FOREVER to convert and save images - up to 15 minutes to convert to an EXIF jpeg and save . . . Is this normal? Why are conversions taking so long?
