Currently Being ModeratedApr 17, 2007 6:55 PM (in response to Capt. Scott)USB 2.0 is "high speed" USB (480 Mbps). If by chance you are using USB 1.1, then yes, file transfer is going to be dreadfully slow. I couldn't see any information about your PC in your profile but... if you are using USB 1.1 OR if you have an older hard drive (slow RPM and write speeds) you are going to bottleneck. You did mention that you have a laptop; laptops (even newer ones) often use slow drives (4200 RPM drives are common.) A NICE thing to do for read/write speeds is to upgrade your laptop's hard drive to a 7200 RPM drive. You can do that for around $100.00 via newegg.
