Format your memory card as exfat.

Writing times with my "extremory SDHC CARD 16 GB Class 10 HYPERPERFORMANCE" after firing a raw-burst until buffer full:

With fat32: ~50sec

With exfat format in the cardreader: ~24sec

Hope it helps someone and does not only work for my specific memory card.

That's in a cardreader can the camera read that format?

Since the OP said 'after firing a raw-burst until buffer is full' I assume that his camera wrote the files. And once they're transferred off the card (to a newish computer that can read them) there should never be any concern about compatibility.
