Transfer of a video file over a wired network
I posted the below on a board in Ireland and it's not coming up with a solution - Would be interested in hearing any opinions you guys have on this situtation:
I have a wired network - ethernet cable from pc upstairs down to modem at television. Cable from modem to WD TV live. So all networked and wd tv shows up correctly as a network drive.
If I transfer a 350mb video file from my pc to the hard drive attached to the WD TV live, over the wired network, it takes just over one minute i.e. just over 5 megabytes a second transfer. Not great but adequate.
If however I connect my Nokia N8 to the same pc and copy the file from the N8 rather than the PC (even though the N8 is connected to the pc!) the file goes to the WD TV in 28 seconds - over 12 megs a second.
How can a file get transferred quicker over the network from a phone connected to the pc than from the pc itself to the same destination?
Hope I've explained it clearly - it's got me baffled!
ps - the phone is displayed under "portable devices" rather than "hard disk drives" and the properties suggest it is using a protocol called MTP - media transfer protocol. I've also added another external usb drive to test the transfer and received the same results as the built in hard drive. So it does appear to be something to do with "hard drives" versus "portable devices" as recognised and dealt with by Windows.
