I use a PC (desktop) that has a CF slot built in.  I have no problems transferring files recorded to the CF card quickly.  My intent was when utilizing the internal HD on the 744T, to be able to transfer the files from there directly without a headache.  I have abandoned that idea after all these negative comments about FW.  No biggie, and I appreciate all the heads ups!!!

I'm just speculating here that the HD was included years ago because CF cards were expensive and folks recording audio for movies needed a lot of file space?  Personally, I'd rather have seen dual CF cards with the option to either use one as primary and the other as a backup or use one as primary and then transfer to the second if the first filled up.  That's what I see on some Nikon cameras.  I like CF for its durability and size because it's not as easy to lose or damage. 

I also have a CF to SD card adapter which has worked fine for me.  One thing you have to watch is some of those adapters are thicker than others, and the thick ones may not fit a SD 7 series slot.

I've noticed, with regards to the CF/SD adapters, that they list an OS in their description.  I currently have Windows 7, which does not seem to be supported by any of them.

As I noted above you could alternatively get a USB/Firewire external hdd and use that as a go between.

Here is a 500gb one for $75

Certainly a good option, but I'm strapped for money now, so I'll make due until I can afford a better option. Thank you.

This CF to SD adapter works in my SD 702 and is listed as compatible with windows 7.  https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/816112-REG/Digieffects_SDXCF_Extreme_SD_HC_XC_to_CF.html  $12.95 plus about $3.50 shipping unless you place a $49 order to qualify for free shipping.

I think CF card readers can be had for less money.
