First the specs:
HP Pavilion dv3510nr Entertainment Notebook
2.0GHz Intel Centrino Core2 Duo Mobile
NVIDIA GeForce 9300 GS Graphics
3 USB2.0 Ports
So I just picked this laptop up a month ago and am disgusted with the read/write transfer speeds of the usb. Ive googled every combination of words pertaining to my issue and came up with nothing
I guess my question is are write speeds of 1.2MB/s normal on a "new" laptop? My Media Center PC can transfer gigabite size files in a matter of seconds on the same thumb drive. (Kingston Traveler 4Gig & 8Gig drives)
Is there a way to tweak the removable storage settings?
Could this have to do with running 64bit VS 32bit?
Is my laptop trying to zero out before it writes?
The really odd thing is that my wifes laptop, which is also an HP Pavilion thats about a year old has transfer rates 3 or 4 times the speed of mine!? She is running Vista 32bit.
I am seriously thinking about returning my laptop since the thought of transferring anything, which is a daily thing, only irritates me. If this cant be solved then I suppose I will have to go out and buy an eSata thumb drive.
Hopefully there is a workaround out there?
[Edit] Just thought Id note that im running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 incase that helps
