Permanence of data recording

Top  Previous  Next

Industrial research often requires that data be stored onto a read-only medium at the time of collection. Whisker supports writing to any file supported by Windows, but you should note that devices such as CD-ROMs and CD-RW devices may not operate fast enough to cope with high-speed data output from Whisker. Additionally, some such devices may not allow software to write small packets at arbitrary times (e.g. they may want the whole file to be written to CD at once).


If your output device cannot cope with 'live' data output from Whisker, save it to a high-speed disk using operating-system (Windows) access protection.


This advice also applies to data recording from Whisker clients.
