Is there a way to temporarily disable to bandwidth limiter on the usb controller? When I connect a usb2 device while running windows 7, the fastest I can get files to transfer is about 8MB/sec. I know my hardware is capable of much faster speeds because when move the same file(s) to or from the same device while booted up in ubuntu, I get transfer speeds well over 50Mb/sec. I have all the newest available drivers
for my system (forcibly installed over the ones windows wanted me to use in some cases). The ICH9m driver
is one example. Before I forced that one into the system, transfer speeds started around 500K/sec and slowly stepped up to about 3Mb/sec. In the device properties I noticed some of the bandwidth is reserved for the system, but not enough to account for the difference between what my hardware is capable of and the actual performance I get. Any suggestions?
