Bridge Photo Downloader slow

Hi, I'm using a Nikon Z6 with a 64GB XQD card. On my Mac mini M1, it's almost impossible to download photos using Adobe Bridge - Photo Downloader. First, in the "Get Photos from" list, there are two memory cards / or partitions #1 and #2. Sometimes one differs from the other in content, but sometimes they contain the same amount of photos.
In addition, sometimes after downloading photos (this is possible only with a small number of photos on the card), the photos are corrupted: for example, only half of the photo is visible. It is not possible to download more photos (e.g. 250).
The same photos from the same card can easily be copied quickly using the Finder with no issues. When I put the same card in a Windows computer where Bridge is installed - everything works fine. I also tried with a different card - a different manufacturer and with a different reader / adapter - always the same.

See what's going on in the attached video if you have enough patience. The video is in real time (notice the clock in the upper right corner).


My current version of Bridge is but the problem has been present in previous versions.
My current version of Mac OS: 13.3.1(a), was also bad on earlier versions. Unfortunately, I don't remember when this problem started.


Problem or error
