I have a Vantec NexStar TX NST-210S2-BK Hard Drive Enclosure - 2.5" SATA to USB 2.0 wit a 120 GB Segate Harddrive in it connected to an Asus K61-IC laptop and my transfer speeds on all my USB Ports are acting super slow.
My laptops specs are as follows:
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor (2.20 GHz)
4 GB Ram
750 GB Western Digital Blue Hard Drive 5400 RPM
NVidia GeForce GT 220 Video Card
16" HD Display
4 2.0 USB Ports
The hard drive enclosure requires two USB Ports which I have both plugged in.
I'm trying to transfer some folders I don't use much to the external and its taking forever. I have never had this problem before.
Currently I'm transferring at 992 KB/Second according to Windows.
Also I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1.
Any help with this is appreciated.
Edit: Also, Just recently I've had a balloon tip start popping up in the taskbar telling me that if I hook my USB Devices up to a USB 2.0 Port it will run faster. I'm pretty sure that all my USB Port's are 2.0. Not for sure on this but if someone will explain how, I'll check and post results.
