I have purchased a brand new Sandisk Cruzer 16 GB (SDCZ36-016G-P36). Just bring it home. Connect to my Desktop and while i am starting copy a 3GB fize to it, its taking ages !! transfer speed is only 4.4mb/s. I dont think that this nice flash drive’s writing speed is too slow. Maybe i have done anything wrong.
I am using Windows 7 32bit.
Hard to say. It’s possible an antivirus is checking every byte being written which would slow it down. Or if the Cruzer is plugged into a USB hub rather than directly into the machine.
Hopefully your file got written eventually.
i am using kaspersky. I have plugged into the desktop directly. No USB hub.
that is the correct speed for the Cruzer. it is a entry level device and is not a hi performance usb drive. average write speed of around 3 to 4MB/s is normal.
