Hard Drives

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried using FS2004 and PMDG stuff on an external hard drive please ? This would enable me to use the products when I'm away from home on my laptop. I'm wondering if there is a performance hit by going 'external'.

That is a good question.I will try it tonight.My guess is that the NG will work fine but the Queen will not work at all (I am afraid it needs a particular registration if you want it to run in a different hard disk).Jose Luis.

Ryan,I thought there might be a delay with the initial loading up but I wondered if as you fly, the scenery loading time is affected by external drive.

Well, I have tested it.I have a backup copy of my "Flight Simulator 9" folder in a Fujitsu (Handy 40-AT) external hard disk and I have launched the simulator from there.The loading time resulted a bit longer than normal, but both the 737 and the 747 have worked fine !. However, in outside views I have experienced a noticeable loss of FPS. Jose Luis.
