Not enough info to provide an answer.  What is your exposure settings?  Etc?  I suggest that you contact Canon.  They will ask you a number of questions, so that they can reproduce your shooting conditions, in an attempt to reproduce your issue.

 

There are a number of causes that can slow down the frame rate.  A very slow shutter speed can slow down the frame rate.  A slow focusing lens can slow down the frame rate.  Some in-camera noise reduction settings can slow down the frame rate.  A slow memory card(s) can slow down the frame rate.  Writing to both card slots can slow down the frame rate.

Make sure that Digital Lens Optimiser is not on. That is a real Digic-Hog.

thanks a lot, after turning it off camera worked very well. 

Turning what off?

Yeah... Don't leave us hanging. Share the cure. Smiley Frustrated

 

Edit to add-

Thanks for filling in the details!

Shooting with the flash would slow things down too. Shooting jpegs instead of RAW files will probably increase your fps rate also. The owner's manual will probably explain which camera settings will effect the fps rate, but you may have to do a bit of digging.

If anything, I'd expect shooting JPEGs to decrease the frame rate, since the camera would probably have to do more computation.

Was just basing this on the fact that it would take less time to write the smaller jpeg files to the card as opposed to the RAW files. It seems quicker to me at least when shooting single images. May have to experiment a bit with a burst of shots both ways.
