Z500 Touch is slow playing video from external HDD

2015-04-07, 0:05 AM

Hi,

 

I have been experiencing slow playing video (more than a minute) from external HDD on my Lenovo Z500 touch. I have used various updated players (vlc,windows media player, media player classic) which gave the same problem. I didn't experience slow playing video with media files on internal HDD (less than 15 secs).

 

So, what happen? USB have problem?

Solved! See the solution

I am running these tests using desktop not Z500 on the external HDD that I used.

Here are the screenshots of the test using HD tune:

1) Benchmark

5) extra test

This external HDD supports USB 3.0. I am using USB 2.0 port to do the tests and also playing videos.

Can you run the 1) benchmark using the Z500 too?

Does it help to run on the High Performance power profile while playing videos?

Hi ColonelONeill,

 

I have try to run my laptop at high performance power profile. I was surprised to find out that the problem of slow playing video from external HDD has been solved. When i double click the media file, it took my laptop less than 8 secs to play it. So, I won't run the benchmark using HD tune.

 

Thanks.
