I'm currently recording to a laptop Hdd via a usb adapter,
And I'm getting Fps in the lower 20's.

Is there a way to check how fast it is through device manager or something?

It's not saying on the front of it.

Use the device manager to check for the name of the harddrive, and then google it?

Defraggler - a windows defrag program. Run it and click on the health tab.

if both your drives are same RPM and you still want to see which of the two is fastest, put them both thru their paces with HDtune.

That's actually not a bad idea.
Thank you!

It's more likely for the USB adapter to be the issue rather than the HDD.

I don't think the speed of the drive matters since it's connected via USB. That's probably what's slowing you down. But if it's external and laptop-sized, it's likely 5400 RPM.
