I have other USB2.0 devices that are equally as slow. It's not just that particular Kingston giving me problems.
So I went and looked at the USB BIOS.
USB Functions: Enabled
2.0 Controller: Enabled
Controller mode: HiSpeed (480mbps)
EHCI hand-off: Enabled
Legacy USB support: Auto
When rebooting out of the BIOS, I got the black screen telling me to insert a boot device. I had to revert back to Enhanced IDE to get Windows to start.
The HDTune results are interesting
Here's what I get immediately after that, transferring a 2.99GB movie file from my hard drive to my USB drive
Same file on the same USB port, going to my external hard drive:
Interestingly, the file transfer to the external hard drive started up over 100mbps and toward the end was just under 30mbps
