That is pretty dismal. The average transfer rate should be in the 50 to 70MB/sec. Apparently you did not let it run to the end and did not get an access time, which would be important too. Let it run until it stops, then you get it.

It could also be a cable issue, as well.

More than likely it is the hard drive, I had an older drive that I had set the pagefile on and it ran very slow and unstable. I ran hdd regenerator and found many bad sectors, I set the pagefile to another drive and it runs like normal. If you can't afford a new drive, look on craig's list and see if someone is giving one away or selling one cheap. The Fry's ads are also a good way to save money if there is a Fry's in your area.
