Hi everyone !
Few days a go I bought a cable firewrire to speed up file transfer from my HPX170 to MacBookPro.
Comparing USB 2.0 and FW400 (which is in hpx170) , FW should be a litlle bit faster.
On USB 2.0 i have speed around 30 MB/s,
when I connect my HPX by FW and start transfer some big file (around 10 GB) the speed doesn’t reach 10 MB/s (!!!!????)
Can anyone explain me why ?????

OK – thx for respond.
But seriously… anybody knows why the firewire is so slow? anyone has same situation ? is it normal 10MB/s on firwire?
and another thing is …. what sense is in buying P2 card reader if i have MBP and the only whay to plug sth is by USB (2.0) and firewire ? 🙂 🙂

I found the USB route to be a little faster then the FW route when transferring from the camera directly. Defys logic I know.
Card reader is the way to go.

I don’t quite understand. (!!!???) If i conntect cardreader to USB 2.0 I’ll still have max 30MB/s , so what’s the point ???
30 MB/s is the maximum speed to copy files from camera ?
Is there anybody who has faster speed coping file from camera ?

Unfortunately, transfer speeds directly from the camera are deathly slow.
I’ve done some testing with P2 ingest speeds and found that the fastest direct-from-camera ingest method is to use USB and P2 Viewer (or P2CMS on Mac).
