I just watched your video http://www.lockergnome.com/hardware/2011/09/02/sd-card-secondary-hard-drive/, and found it very helpful, but I'm still not totally sure if you were using the SDXC card in the same way I wish to.
I'm need to buy a new MBP, and I am torn over the storage capacity to get in there. I do a lot of pro-audio work, so for a long time now I have been lugging around firewire drives to record my sessions directly onto. With the new MBP i hope to buy, i was considering getting it with the 128gb SSD on which i woud install all my Apps, and then replace the Optical Drive with a second hard drive that i could use to record all my audio work, and avoid having to carry around extra drives.
From your video, it sounded like you were recording video to the SSD, and then copying it over to the SDXC. Was i mistaken? Basically, i want to see if i can use the SDXC to be at least as fast as using an external firewire drive, or better yet as fast as a traditional hard drive in the optical bay. Or in this case, should i just bite the bullet and replace the optical bay with another SSD. Thanks!
