Voyager 16gb (CMFUSB2.0-16GB) slow write speeds

huh?....?

 

since its in Fat32 i can't copy large files to it I know.. I zipped up a 7gb ISO in to 95mb files.. and it took 45min to copy the aprox 6.5gb worth of files... just seems way slow to me.. slower then a few other drives i have had in the past..

some numbers i found about the drive tested by others

 

do you know how you can calculate the average transferspeed?

 

@ RAM GUY

Thanks that was i wanted to know smaller chunks should speed transfer up :-)

 

but my experience is different, writing large files tops out at 28,8MB/s according to Win7/Vista.

if i copy my dokument folder with 1,2GB Size to it, transfer slows down to 2MB/s and i have to wait 8 min.

Longer than one big file twice the size thats strange ....

The HD Bench Software is the best tool to use to test the drives performance.

And for ISO Images you can format the drive to NTFS file system. But one larger file would take less time than 10 smaller files of the same total Volume.

yes that was my logic but stopwatch and just copying->format->testing shows different and that might be stupid to me i will look into it closer.

i cann't be right, is there anything that slows down writing? like cache startegy on windows? some config i might have done wrong?
