And I thought you were copying to a roll of paper towel - LOL. But those guys can be pretty slow. I have one of those too - and that is even USB2:

Reminds me of that bug when Vista was first released and the duration of copying files would display something like 36,000 days

I thought it was pretty hilarious... that's why I posted it.

It actually finished in a little under 9 hours. I could have burned DVDs, gotten out the bicycle, taken it over to my friend's place and copied it to his hard disk, had a couple of beers and been home before the flash drive finished... But, we did it the way we did it...

In the days of dialup, I had that happen more times than I care to remember!
