image capture very slow

Hello. I’ve just started using v.3.6 on my home set-up (Macbook running Mavericks, Canon 60D using live view). All stages of the image capture process are very slow (preview, shutter release, image appearing in the timeline) - much slower than the set-up I used in college.
I’d be very grateful for tips of things I could check to improve this. Thanks!

It’s hard to judge without seeing the setup. Please make sure you set your camera to JPEG instead of RAW, and remove the SD Card from the slot. This is at the moment the only thing I could think of.

Hello, I followed advice to take the SD card out of my camera- weirdly it has worked so far…
