Thanx for having me here at your forum. I'd like to address a problem that is quite prevalent and one to which I cannot find a 'fix". Go all around the "net" and you'll see multitudes of folks with the same enigma.
Recently, I noticed a flashdrive (pendrive , memory drive, mem stick, jump drive...etc) was 'writing at less than half the speed it previously had been. Started checking my other drives and discovered 5 others with same malady. Got on the web, checked quite a few forums, read dozens of how-to's and yet, I could not find a cause nor repair for this. This USB pendrive problem is wide spread and it baffles me (and all others) that someone has not offered up a cure??? Let me clarify my position: Pendrive suddenly slowed it's writing speed. I want to #1. Identify and correct whatever is causing the problem and #2. Restore the drives to their original factory specs. Example: Kingston DT101G2 16Gb previously wrote @ 7.8+ Mb/s-- at present it's writing @ 1.8-2.2 Mb/s. The "read" speeds are consistent with the original speed. I'm hoping there exists a geek (knowledgeable tech) who truly understands and can rectify this malady. There are many who'd appreciate such a remedy. And please...don't reply if your attitude is the drives are toast ...I've done too many tests that confirm otherwise!!!
