Does the "slowness" appear to be constant or intermittently copying fast and then slow ??????

Just as, sometimes a download gets 'corrupted' -- I think this happens occasionally with transferring data as well. When this happens to me, I just stop the transfer, close Windows Explorer (and sometimes even reboot the computer) and then start again. It's usually fine the second time.
