    Sorry if this has been discussed, searched under file transfer, but is there a way to increase the speed that files can be transfered to an SD card from the Treo?

    I get video files that are about 2.5 megs and it takes 45 minutes to make a transfer.

    Can a card influence the speed of a transfer?

    Thanks

    Yes but I assume you are hotsyncing the file?

    You don't have a card reader?
    OR via some software (not sure which do this, but I KNOW they exist, hopefully someone can suggest the s/w by name)... so that your Treo can mount on your PC and the SD card will behave like an external drive. THEN it's just a matter of dragging/dropping files to your SD card.

    You can get CardExportII it works great, or it's cheaper to get a SD reader/writer. As far as 45 min, that sounds like something else wrong there. I use Audibles internal book copying program to copy 60-70mb books to my SD card and they take no more than 2 minutes.

    For some reason the Treo cannot write very fast to SD, and it is very slow reading sequentially from SD (i.e., if you have a MobileDB file stored on the SD card).

    A card reader is the best option. Fortunately for me, my laptop has a built-in SD card reader.

    I have a built in card reader in my desktop that is blazing fast at doing what you are trying to do. That would be your best option. Either a USB or onboard card reader.

    What I was hoping for was a faster transfer from the Treo to the SD. When I am on the road and do not have access to a laptop for a transfer via a card reader it would be great to have a faster transfer of larger files I get via email.

    If you don't have a 45x or better card, you're limited by the card speed, not by the Treo. Anything above 45 is likely limited by the Treo SD interface.

    You get 3M files in email? I'm surprized it doesn't bomb.. And yikes, how long does that take to download?!

    Custom ROM with the FAT32 driver might help some

    FYI, card reader from mobilstream is much much better than card export imo...

    I need a great, not good but GREAT SD card. I have to transfer files from SNAPPER MAIL on the Treo to an SD card a lot.

    These files are usually mpg files around 1-2 megs.

    Referenced above is a 45x or better card. Sorry I am not up to date on what this referes to and how you can make sure the card you are buying meets the qualifications of being a 45x or better SD card.

    can some one enlighten me and or recommend a card that meets these requirments.

    Thanks

    Hmm, speed is almost the whole reason I was considering FAT32. That and finally seeing the whole 2GB on my card instead of 1.8. What about this post?

    my experience is otherwise. significantly. using the FAT32 driver makes read/write access -- even with a FAT16-formatted 1GB or 2GB card -- much faster. in fact, using just that setup (FAT16-formatted 1GB card) gave me the ability to record sound with P.A.R. straight to the card at an acceptable bitrate, something I was unable to do before....

    yes, it could make a fat16 formatted card be read faster, but not a fat32 card below 2gb. well, my experience is based on tomtom and i have used tomtom with a fat32 formatted 2 gb card and it was way slower than the fat16 which i am now using again.

    I see you mention Snapper and the transferring of files to the SD card. Are you an IMAP user? If so, Chatter does a better job of storing files on the SD card - and I am a registered user of Snapper and ChatterEmail. Ben

    You might take a look at this thread. A high write speed should reduce your transfer time. This is not always reflected by the general speed class of a card. Cards with high write speeds are generally most useful in cameras, etc. Some of the web sites post details of the manufacturers claims for the various functions. If your lucky a store may let you try out a card in your Treo so you can see how it compares using the VSF app. Part of the problem is that card speed measurements can be affected by other apps or available memory.
