Today I tried a new thing I ordered online which would allow me to connect a CF card to my thunderbolt SATA interface reader. I was hoping this would shave a little time when offloading big CD cards like 64GB or 128GB. If you’re one for short and sweet posts, here it is: big FAIL.
Basically the little red thing is a CD card slot which I connected to my Seagate thunderbolt reader.
On a full 32GB card it took the CF card reader 16 min 30 sec while it only took 5 min 20sec on my Kingston USB3 reader. So it was good in theory but a miserable fail in real life. I also, for fun, tried moving 35GB from an SSD through the thunderbolt reader to my internal drive on my macbook pro. 1 min!!! 🙂
