Windows 7: USB Thumb Drive transfer rates drop off...

USB Thumb Drive transfer rates drop off...

Hello,

I have a USB that is relatively new, and i have even formatted it multiple times. 0% fragmentation. I also just defragged my HDD. I am trying to transfer over a movie i just ripped to view on my Roku. The file transfer speed started off at 233 MB/S, but now, roughly four minutes later, Im down to about 8.8 mb/s. It is still dropping as well. I have enabled write caching for the device also. What is going on here? I also have updated all my drivers. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Ben

Is it in a USB3 port?
A USB device will slow down if it is in a USB3 port. nothing to worry about.

No it isnt. Another weird issue. My computer came with the drivers and on it is the driver for USB 3.0. But it says to enable it inorder to install the driver. How do i go about doing this?

Thanks,
Ben
