The storage's subsystem I/O listener checks if the ...


I'm guessing, I don't know the internals, but stop and think about it... The camera clearly already has the file buffered in its memory, from which it writes the first card. Why would it would it take the time to read it back (to write the second card), when it already has it buffered in memory? It is possibly multi-threaded, and writes both at the same ...
