I have D300 with Sigma 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM. lens and Hitachi 4GB Microdrive, and the high speed burst mode seems to be capped at about 3fps. More specifically, I got 14 shots in 6 seconds at Ch mode. If I change custom setting to increase rate of Cl mode, it also seems to be capped at the same speed, how can I get the full 6fps burst rate?

I'm certain that the microdrive cannot be written to as fast as CF but there are other potential reasons as well:
(1) the quality setting
(3) In camera noise reduction
They can all negatively affect your fps. The manual does note limitations but not in a succinct way.
