Windows 7: Loading huge files - fast

What do you mean by "able to load 25gb files in up to 5-10 seconds" exactly? Load them into what from where? 10K RPM drives MIGHT hit 200MB/s Read/Write on a good day. Not worth spending money on for such a little bump up in performance. You either need a very complex RAID array or SSD's to take the Read/Write speed of the mechanical HD out of the equation.

if it's not a secret, can you tell what are you trying to do (i.e. what are those big files for, and why you need so fast transfer rates)? maybe there is a better way around the issue.

No. It's just the limit of the technology.

Many video programs will compress video streams into .avi, .mp4, etc. to save disk space. However, I have found it takes more time to do the conversion that to wait for the file to transfer.

I would also suggest meditation!

There really is no other solution, besides trying to find the fastest SSD on the market, which probably isn't fast enough, or accepting the wait times. I'll have to accept the wait times

You checked out RAID? Add moar disks and run them as one to improve speed. Raid 0 is the fastest, but if a drive dies you lose everything, raid 10 and you have moar speed and enough fault tolerance to survive some losses.

If you have a crappy PC laying around (and an excessive amount of hard drives) you can add that at the software level with linux. Then you just need to find a cable with enough bandwidth to move data to/from it.

OP, yeah you are in the technology limitation, 160 megs a second is SLOW?

What are you doing, that it's a problem? [someone needs perspective, here you try a 1200 baud modem!! ]

Until 2237 when we'll have bio gel packs as storage medium. No waiting at all and they hold exabytes of data.

Well, that's from Star Trek Voyager isn't it?
Not a show known for scientific accuracy.

Although yeah, bio-stuff has a ridiculously high data density (DNA mostly), the issue is that reading speed tends to suck a bit as it's a loooooooooooong tape.

The original Star Trek predicted the flip phone!

We are waiting for Quantum Computing, where (as the breathless protagonists tell us) the computer will have the answer before you ask it. (Verbally of course!)

We have already quantum computers. They are one-trick ponies though. That is, they can do stuff normal computers cannot, but cannot do what a normal computer can. So they do just some equation solving for the moment.
Btw, Google bought one recently for its brand new Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab. Likely to make smarter search algorithms, and not at all a world-ruling Skynet. Googlenet.

Any smartphone equipped with Siri or one of its android clones can do that. Wolfram Alpha is another similar project (answers questions written in plain english) but does not listen/speak (not that it's hard to add anyway)
