Voyager 16 Gb performance on Mac OSX

Recommended Posts

A new, out-of-the-box Voyager 16 Gb came formatted in Fat-32. On my Mac Pro (PPC) the write speed is 3.9 Mb/s and the read speed is 0.5 Mb/s. Any suggestions for improving performance? I only have access to Macs.

Reformatted the Voyager with Fat-32 format. On the G5 running Tiger, writing is 5.5 Mb/s and reading is 11.1 Mb/s. On a Macbook Pro running Leopard, writing is 6.4 Mb/s and reading is 33.9 Mb/s. Although writing is a little slow, the drive is performing close to expectations. Thanks.

If you get a hold of a Windows system you can try to format the drive from a command prompt with this syntax:

Format (X:) /FS:FAT32 /U (X=the drive letter assigned to the Flash Voyager)

Please try the HD-Bench software to test the performance.

The write should be about 8-14 MBps and read should be about 23-30MBps.

If you still have problems we can get it or them replaced, please use the RMA request found in TSXpress or follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
