Question about Cameras
I just called Canon because I was having the same problem. They suggested putting the camera in the sports mode. The reason it flashes busy is because there is a buffer period after taking pictures where the camera needs to store the information to the disk or if using a flash, then the flash needs to recharge. If you have plenty of natural light, then the full auto (the green square) mode can be selected because the flash won't have to recharge. If you are using the portait mode, then you will have to wait for the buffer period for the flash to recharge and the information to be stored to the disk.

It is writing the picture to the memory card, if you know it to be faster when you first used it the memory card may be wearing out replace with a new one. some electronics stores have options of faster cards as well. don't go overboard, but getting the next step up may make a good difference. Yet you may not notice a difference from mid quality to high quality unless we are talking dollars.

Not sure, a couple things to check are the memory card you are using. If you have different card give it a try. Also, if you are trying to do burst mode there is a limit for your camera depending upon your settings. When you reach that limit the camera has to wait while all the data is written to the memory card.
