How Long should it take?

Thu Sep 10, 2015 7:33 am

Hi There,

I'm using a Mac Mini to create a class set of Raspbian images. I'm using 16Gb Lexar SDHC cards and they're taking about 12 hours to completely write - that can't be right can it?

Cheers

Dave

12 hours each? That's way too long.

What method are you using to write them?

Are you attempting to write multiple cards at the same time?
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
