This question is best asked to an attorney in your area.  Each state has their own Criminal Procedure Act or Law that deals with the time frames for the turning over of discoverable material from the police and the prosecutors to the defendant and his or her attorney in a case.  Was an attorney appointed on your behalf at the arraignment or have you hired your own private attorney?  Either way you should discuss the matter with him or her. You will be able to review the evidence so do not be concerned about that.  How else would you be able to help your attorney prepare a defense in the matter?
