    USB transfer speeds


    When I transfer a file to my external hard drive the file only moves at
    10-12MB/s I thought they were supposed to have higher transfer speeds than
    that/ 13GB file takes 30 minutes? My internet speed is almost as fast.

    What can I do to improve it?

    Thaks for any help, Rich

    You are going through a USB Port!
    You are governed by its speed, not Vista's!

    No hub dirrectly to the port on the MB. I think it's the speed of the drive
    I have as I've read more about it.
