How to improve writing speed.

Post by maheelrp » Sat Jul 29, 2017 7:15 am

I intend to use digicam to control a Nikon J1 camera and write the file to the hard disk. But in an i7 with 16 Gb RAM, it takes around 4 seconds to write the file which is a bit low for my requirement. What is the bottleneck here. USB2 or the disk writing speed? Will it be possible to increase the speed using SSDs?

Thanks.

Hi, check this version https://s3.amazonaws.com/download.digic ... 0.73.4.exe in the transfer done message i included the transfer time and the transfer speed for better comparation.

I have a I5 with ssd i tried transfer to ssd and to a hardisk the transfer speed was same or almost same even some cases the hardisk was faster. The transfer speed is depend on multiple component usb, memory cpu, and disk, based on debugging the disk write take 2x-3x time that the usb transfer in memory no mater if ssd (anyway the ssd read speed is great not the write speed) or hard disk
