USB transfer speeds

R
#1
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!
