8gb Transcend Flash Drive with slow read/write speeds

Hi, Im having some problems with my flash drive, on Xp works like a charm, but on windows 7 is really slow, it wont write faster than 800Kb/s and when i plug it on the PC it always says, this devices could run faster if you insert it blablabla... and other devices like Kingston, work great...

Any ideas on what could be the problem??

If you insert it into a USB 2.0 port? You likely need to update your USB drivers. It did that on this old Dell Dimension that I got from a good friend, until I updated its drivers.

Did you install the chipset drivers for your motherboard?

I dont know how to update the USB drivers, in running Win7 ultimate, and it already had the chipset, video and Lan driver for my MSI motherboard, I only had to update the Realtek HD driver for the Audio, plus the Cds i have for the motherboard wont run on win 7 cuz it says its only compatible with Vista/xp/200/etc

any ideas?

For some reason your computer is seeing the USB as usb 1.1 and hence the your device could be faster message. If it works in XP and not in win 7 I would suspect usb driver. you can verify by going into device manager (type device manager in search) and looking at the USB section (root, hub, etc) if any yellow flags you need to update the driver.

Let us know if you need help with this

Noup, no yellow flags on the device manager, and its weird that this only happens with my Transcend 8gb flash drive, cuz I have tried other brands and they work fine...

Could this be a compatibility issue between win7 and transcend flash drives?

Thanks for the help guys
