Angry UGH! 10.6 Restore 1 DAY 18 HOURS! - 09-11-2009, 12:19 AM

So yeah, from the 10v, to restore the 10.6 SL DMG to a 8 GB SD card it is now 1 day 21 hours (And going up).

So is that absurd time because of the limits of the 10v or because of the SD card? Its a micro SD card from my phone into an SD adapter.

It took my DM9 5hrs to restore the SL DVD to my 16GB SDHC card (class 4). I think it has to with the fact that the MicroSD card is very slow to begin with, and being in an adapter isn't helping the speed much

If you are restoring on the mini 9, don't. Those drivers are extremely slow. Use a usb adapter instead and it'll be faster.
