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.

Dear Sir, My HTC Smart is super slow & i sometime even can't send out masseges... i never install anything or use any SD Card... but i don't want to reinstall / reformat the whole phone....

With the Android OS, it is common that apps remain open in the background. Applications inclue your Messenger, Browser, Music, etc. (Not just the applications you download from the Market). I advise that you download a Task Manager from the Market. These can be found for free. Also, with Android always updating the OS, it fills a lot of memory on your phone. Installing a small SD card may be helpful for speed.

Hello Abhijeeet,

First scan your memory card for virus using antivirus.

May be phone is slow due to virus.

After that you can format the phone.

HP iPaq Rx3115 ...Please Help..

It depends what quality you need. If you need top quality you will have to go for something else like a dell axim x50v. This PDA should be ok for watching a movie as long as it is encoded properly, at a low resolution that is.

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

Problems with SD Slot on Axim

I once used Mazingo on another pocket pc. I had it set to use the CF card in it. It did the same thing it's doing on yours now. It caused word to take a long time to open and it loaded the pages in it really slow. I stopped using it for that reason. I think it may just me the Mazingo program.

Map Install

The “download” and the “indexing” of the maps are really 2 separate procedures. Yes, the indexing can take quite a while; you might as well have something else to do after you hit OK. Some members save certain maps files, already indexed to substitute as needed. Then the only speed concern is in the copying of the file to the SD card using a card reader. Some cards such as the Toshiba are fast to read but slow to write so this becomes a factor at this point. Edit: I’m assuming you meant 256MB not 256K. Also when you add just a little to your existing map file, it will cause the entire map to be recreated, so it’s not how much you currently add as how big the entire resultant map is that determines the time needed.

Using a picture for background

That's a universal problem with using the built-in software to set the picture. Rainald has a lot to say about it, and a solution, in this thread: =940242 Myself, I use Resco Photo Viewer to set my background picture--and it does fine, but that would be too much money to spend for just that one function. Good luck.
