• How long does it take for 100,000 songs for to be transferred to a hard drive from a pc?

    Best answer: There s no accurate figure to provide here as there s too many variables in play... such as... * Storage device of file source * Storage LOCATION of file source * Storage device of file destination * Storage LOCATION of file destination * TYPE of connection (online, USB 2.x, USB 3.x, Bluetooth, ect.) * Length of... show more
    Best answer: There s no accurate figure to provide here as there s too many variables in play... such as...

    * Storage device of file source
    * Storage LOCATION of file source
    * Storage device of file destination
    * Storage LOCATION of file destination
    * TYPE of connection (online, USB 2.x, USB 3.x, Bluetooth, ect.)
    * Length of Songs (2 minutes, 3 minutes, 20 minutes)
    * Format of Songs (MP3, MP4, AAC, ect.)
    * Quality of Song format (128 Kbps, 320 Kbps, ect.)

    I m going to run some very BROAD ASSUMPTIONS here, just to provide an estimate for you... which are...

    * Song Format is MP3
    * Song Quality if 128 Kbps
    * Song Length is 3 minutes on average...

    This makes each song roughly 3 MB a piece... making the 100,000 songs in question clocking in at 300,000 MB s or 300 GB s.

    Other assumptions will be...

    * Source Storage is a USB external HDD
    * Destination Storage is a HDD
    * Supported connection is USB 2.x (despite the port being USB 3.x)

    With USB 2.x, connection speeds typically level out at 25 MBps... So 300,000 / 25 = 12,000 seconds = 200 minutes = 3h 20 m... AT AN ESTIMATE, which is assuming you re not doing anything else on your computer at the same time (which will eat into the transfer speed, negatively affecting the time estimate).

    If everything can run on USB 3.x, the connection speed could push around 60 MBps. Which lowers the time requirement to 1h 23m 20s (~83.333 minutes) AT AN ESTIMATE

    If you re download the songs from an online server, speeds can be greatly different as well. Which I m assuming...

    * Your ISP has an unlimited, unmetered plan... OR a high-usage allowance (~1 TB / 1,000 GB)
    * Your download connection speed is 100 Mbps & you re able to utilize 80% of your bandwidth (which can be limited on the server side, based on availability).

    That means your connection is running at 80 Mbps OR 10 MBps (as 8 bits = 1 Byte... note the capitalization of the b )... which means that 300,000 MB library will take 30,000 seconds = 500 minutes = 8h 20m AT AN ESTIMATE.


    Hope this helps.

    Best answer: First Figure out if you want AMD or Intel Based Computer. Note AMD is far cheaper and does the job just as good or better than Intel. Intel is very pricey.
    second Choose your motherboard if amd for example and processor
    Go with an Nvidia video card that does direct x 12 or 12.1
    Go with Corsair 750 .. pick any dvd drive any case and get a monitor if you dont have one that has 300 cd or better and refresh rate of 3ms no higher than 5ms
    I sugest you get an an 8 core processor... and get two sticks of dual channel 4gb memory sticks G skill memory is good. YOu can find everything and reviews on Newegg.com that is the go to place for building a gaming system.. one last thing processor amd processors have been sized as am3plus for years now the new size is am4... so if you get an am4 processor make sure you get an am4 motherboard.. same is if you get an am3plus make sure you get an am3plus motherboard.. if you get the am3plus sized processor i recommend the amd 8350.. you can save money buy doing that.. copy and paste this information and always have it. people will agree with everything that I say.. this is the formula
