    Firewire transfer rate
    Hey guys,

    Is there a way to test the transfer speed of a firewire connection?

    The reason is that I've bought a externall HDD with FW 800 connection.

    It proclaims itself to have a sustained transfer rate of 73MB/sec.

    It would give me roughly 4.4 GB/min, right?

    Last night a did the first backup from my mbp to the ext disk.

    I'm not sure, but as far as I could notice, transfer rates were about 2 GB/min...

    What should I expect from this kind of connection?

    tks!
