Corsair Voyager 8GB very slow

Hi,

 

I bought a Corsair Voyager 8GB USB Drive yesterday and it seems to be running extremely slow.

 

Read speed is good but write speed is excruciatingly slow.

 

2.0 MB/s for writing a single file of 3GB

700 KB/s - 1.5 MB/s for writing about 200 files ranging between 10KB-2MB.

 

I read some of the posts and ran the SD Format Utility by Panasonic and now the speed has gone upto

 

7.0-8 MB/s for writing a single file of 3GB

700 KB/s - 1.5 MB/s for writing about 200 files ranging between 10KB-2MB.

 

Is this normal?

Please test using HDBench (Available here: http://www.asktheramguy.com/v3/showthread.php?t=67837) and follow these steps to accurately test the write and read speed for your drive.

 

1. Do a full format with FAT32 on a Windows XP machine. (we have found that formatting the drive with Vista will give you slower transfer speeds)

2. Make sure you select the correct drive letter in the lower right hand corner of HDBench.

3. Make sure 100MB file size is selected

4. Click the "Computer Tower" icon on the bottom left of the screen to begin the benchmark.

 

Let me know the results!
