Archiving Cards Takes "Forever"

Hey All...

I have had my C100 MkII for a few weeks and one of the things I have noticed is that it is taking a very long time to archive my cards.

My workflow calls for always archiving every job or shoot by converting my card to a .dmg (which I throw onto two different archive drives) before porting the shots into FCPX.

I have noticed that converting the cards out of the C100 (vs., say, my 5D Mk III) to disk images takes an incredibly long time.

Last night I shot 12, 10 second or so shots onto a SanDisk Extreme Pro, 95 MB/s 64 GB card and it took and it took almost an hour to save the card as a .dmg.

I have always worked with cameras that used CF cards in the past...are big SD cards that slow to save or am I missing something?

Get a USB 3.0 card reader, will be several times faster than USB 2.0 interface

Thanks

Re: Archiving Cards Takes "Forever"

Thanks Jeff...

Never occurred to me that I had an old card reader on a USB 3 port...That helped quite a bit.

Still takes a long time but with a 64GB card I guess that's par...

I just happened to archive 73GB from a 128GB SD last night - took around 20 minutes. (USB 3)
