Well, thanks to you guys, I now also have a 128 GB flash drive embedded in my Venue 8 Pro. One issue that I've encountered is that random writes are terrifically SLOW. Unfortunately, I only performed speed tests on the flash drive with sequential writes before I got under the hood and did the deed. *facepalm* It could be that something is wrong with my setup but if there isn't then I doubt there is really anything that can be done to improve it. I have tried enabling write caching to help mask the problem but I can't enable it for the device, and it is preventing programs from being run from the drive (e.g. Steam is glacially slow for a few minutes then simply crashes). Any suggestions for flash drives fast enough to store and run programs from? I'd be willing to take a 64 GB drive and leave the 128 in along side it (assuming there's enough room, which there could be- this 128 was pretty small).
