Been having this problem for a while and I have been searching and searching and cannot find a solution. I know there are very simliar threads but like I said I cannot find a solution.
I own a custom built desktop with the following :
intel dx58so motherboard
8gb of ram
Thermaltake TRX-750M Power supply 750W
if any more information is needed on the build let me know.
I recently noticed the transfer rate really slow, at an average about 1.5MB/s.
I have tried enabling Better Performance option but what happens is that it starts really fast and then goes down to about 1.5MB/s anyways and usually just freezes or stops.
I also have a laptop, its an Acer Aspire AS5745DG-6681. Specifications are:
Intel Core i5-480M, 15.6" HD (1366x768) LED-backlit, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Blu-ray Combo Drive, NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M 1GB, Wireless N, HDMI, Webcam, 9-cell, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
I updated the RAM to 8GB on the laptop.
Using the same external hard drive, I can get rates at an average of 30MB/s and better performance is also disabled on the laptop.
I Don't know what the difference is they both have Windows 7 64 bit, just the laptop is Home Premium and my desktop is Windows 7 Enterprise.
Anyone have any ideas that can shoot me in the right direction?
PS. Forgot to mention I recently reformated and did a fresh install of windows 7 and see if it would solve the problem but it didnt.
And also tried booting in safe mode to see if the rate would increase but it stays the same.
