Mine is not old, it's new. I directly plug it to the USB port of my machine. the average speed mostly is less than 5mbps. Its brand is PNY. The problem is with the flash not my machine. I have bought it and I must bear it apparently.

Khoshtipi where are you in putting the USB into your pc ?

Direct to the M/B at the back of the case or front of the case that is linked to the M/B.
Are you using a USB extension cable or Hub ?

While there is little to do to speed up a flash drive, they do come in different "speed" ratings. Some are higher performance than others, cheap and freebies are generally REAL slow. Usually the vendor will have specifications listed for average read/write performance.

No. And exactly like what you said, I put it directly into the USB ports (from front or back) of the PC.

I get what feels like lousy performance on my USB flash drives also, I don't have write caching enabled, so I can unplug all my USB stuff whenever I feel like it. (I watch the power/active light on them)

I don't own any USB 3.0's though, all 2.0 fodder, best not to sit and stare at it while it eventually gets the job done and teases with 1% left usually hanging for another minute.
