Question about HP iPAQ RX3115 Pocket PC

Slow SD Speed

I seem to have a slow SD card interface and wonder if this is a trait of the rx3115, or caused by something else. I purchased an A-Data 60x 1GB SD card and have used up around 900 MB of it. The card was defragged, so all files were contiguous on it. I ran Pocket Mechanic and was surprised to find my scores were the slowest ever recorded. The "read" speed is around 0.02-0.05 MB/sec. The strangest part of this, is the "write" speed is around 0.10 MB/sec. Both are slow, but the write speed is normally the slower of the two. Is there something I should check or do? When I ran the tests, there were no other running programs. I also ran the tests with the SD card formatted and the results were the same. I purchased the PDA a couple months ago, and have it registered with HP. Thank you.

take the foot control to a sewing machine repair shop and have it checked out
you say it appears aftermarket--probably is to replace a faulty OEM unit

My nikon coolpix 5600 camera taking a photograph after that taking long time for ready to next photo. why?

You might be using a slow SD card and your camera is buffering the data waiting for the slow speed card to catch up. Try a faster memory card. I would suggest an SDSC card. They have a much faster write speed.

The camera says the sd card is too slow

If you are try to video capture and the SD card is a Class 4 speed then it is too slow for videos.
Use a Class 8 or Class 10 SD memory card and this will fix your problem.

When i go on the sd card to play games, It says "an error has occured. Press and hold the power button to turn it off. Please the Nintendo operations manual for help troubleshooting? PLease help, I...

Is this a Nintendo Wii? If so, not all games will work directly from the SD card.
If the console shuts down straight away just by accessing the SD card menu, then it's probably just the SD card itself causing the problem.

Make sure you are using the correct type of SD card. Also, make sure you have no corrupt files (i.e. music, photos, pirated games). here's some information Nintendo have posted themselves regarding SD card compatability:

Not all SD Cards are compatible with the Wii console. Please read the following:

  • The Wii console is only compatible with SD Cards that are 2 GB (Gigabyte) or less. Cards with a capacity higher than 2 GB will likely not work with the Wii console.
  • SD Cards with a slow speed may experience slow transfer time when loading files, or may not work at all. Slow transfer times can also occur with SD Cards that have a great number of files on them.
  • While any SD Card with the above specifications may work, Nintendo has licensed specific SD Cards for use with the Wii console. You can identify these cards by the Nintendo Seal on the packaging of the SD Card.

I have developed an ms access POS. When i print receipt to samung thermal printer srp 350 ver 2, it prints very slow. i have tried several drivers but i end up with the same slow printing problem. I am...

itecghana, printing slow is probably an issue of the interface type (serial, parallel, usb, ethernet...) and not the printer itself. The Bixolon 350 has a self test printout capability (turn on printer while holding down the feed button) which'll demonstrate the print speed capability of the printer.
My guess is you have a serial interface (COM port), serial is notoriously slow when printing via any windows driver.
If the printer you have is a 350, one solution is to change the interface card on the printer from Serial to USB. The part number of the USB interface card is IFA-U Type, can buy one for about 35 bucks online.

2GB High Speed SD Card for Nuvi 255W

Yeah you can use any of the Ultra High speed SD cards usually around $25.00 on-line for a 2gig. High speed has a transfer rate of about 2MG/Sec The Ultra's are around 15MB/sec transfer rate so make sure that you get a high speed one and you'll be fine. The $6.00 ones are not what you need too slow for map displays.

Speed of CF vs SD in Axim

The reason CF COULD be faster is that it is a parallel connection (16bit IIRC) while SD/MMC is serial in nature. Now, assuming the INTERFACE were the limiting factor in the speed this could become significant. Unfortunately the interface is NOT the limit (in most cases), the limit is the actual fetching of data from the memory itself. Being Flash it is nowhere near as fast as some of the other types of memory we are used to. It is especially slow when being written to. Newer cards out there are faster then older ones, but in the end I doubt you would notice much if any difference between the speed of a CF versus an SD/MMC card
