Slow Transfer on a USB Flash Drive b> Using a USB flash drive is a convenient way of transferring data and files from one device to another. However, sometimes you may find that your USB drive is slow to transfer files onto your laptop or PC. This lag may also cause your desktop or laptop to slow down while you use other programs. You do not need to replace your flash drive and buy a new one. You can fix a slow file transfer problem in just a few steps.

b>Plug your USB flash drive into your computer. Click the "Start" button and select "My Computer." Right-click the USB icon from the My Computer window and click "Properties" from the menu that comes up. Go to the "Hardware" tab and select your flash drive once you find it in the list of items. Then click the "Properties" option in this menu. Choose "Policies" tab within the Properties menu. Turn on the performance optimization option and click "OK." Click "OK" again to exit out of the Properties dialog box. Go back to the My Computer window and right-click on the USB icon. Select the "Format" option from the list of choices. Select the "NTFS" file system and choose "Quick Format." Press "OK" to confirm the choices and to initiate the formatting. Wait for the drive to finish formatting before ejecting it and removing it from the computer.
USB Flash That Is Slow and Damaged
b> USB flash drives are used to transport data between computer systems. Because it is essentially just a small hard drive, the USB device can become damaged and slow down in performance due to viruses or damaged files. To correct these problems and fix the USB flash drive, you must reformat the drive. This removes all data from the drive, returning it to its factory settings.

Plug the USB flash drive into a USB port on the computer system. Close any AutoPlay window that may load onto the screen. Click "Start" then "(My) Computer." Right-click the removable device icon that appears on the screen. Select "Format" from the pull-down menu. This loads a format options screen. Click "Yes" and the computer formats the USB flash drive, removing the damaged content and returning it to the factory settings.
ReadyBoost With a Slow Flash Drive

b>The ReadyBoost feature in Windows has the ability to increase the speed of low-RAM computers by caching program data on a flash memory device. However, the device must meet minimum performance characteristics in order for Windows to enable ReadyBoost, because ReadyBoost may not meet expectations when used on a slower device. If you still want to use ReadyBoost with your flash drive or memory card, you can make a change in the system registry to force Windows to use the device.

Insert the flash device that you would like to use for ReadyBoost. Open the Start menu, and click "Computer" to see the icon for the device. Right-click the icon for the flash device, and then click "Properties." Click the "ReadyBoost" tab at the top of the window. Clear the check from the "Stop retesting this device when I plug it in" box, and then click "OK." Remove the flash device. Open the Start menu again. Type "regedit" in the "Search programs and files" box at the bottom, and then press "Enter" to run the Registry Editor. Double-click the folders "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE," "SOFTWARE," "Microsoft," "Windows NT," "CurrentVersion." and "EMDMgmt." Locate and click the folder for your flash memory device under "EMDMgmt." In most cases, you can determine the correct folder because it contains the name of the device's manufacturer. Double-click the registry entry "DeviceStatus" on the right side of the window. Change the number under "Value Data" to "2" and click "OK." Double-click "ReadSpeedKBs" on the right side of the window. Change the value to "10000000" and click "OK." Repeat this process with the "WriteSpeedKBs" registry entry and close the Registry Editor. Reinsert the flash memory device, and return to the "Computer" window. Right-click the icon for the flash memory device, and then click "Properties." Click the "ReadyBoost" tab. Windows now displays an option to enable ReadyBoost on the device. You might install a usb 3 card the speeds are much faster cheap and easy to install. Hope this helps.

What is the specification of your computer?
Also, try formatting the pen drive and then use it.

This issue may come when you have virus on the system or the pen driver.

Very slow transfer to Kingston 8GB datatraveler


HI,

- Check if your PC is running at its maximum efficiency
- Close all side processes that are not of any use to you. This can be done by pressing :Ctrl+Shift+Esc and then going to processes. In there only close the processes that are under your user name and are of no use. NOTE: DON'T CLOSE "EXPLORER.EXE". This will free a sizeable amount of your RAM, making your PC generally faster.
- While copying anything, avoid multi-tasking as that will simply slow down your PC, causing a delay in the copying.
IF NONE OF THIS WORKS, then create a back-up of all the software in your Pen-Drive and then format it.
This should just about do it.
If still the problem persists, go to your dealer- your pen-drive must be in its warranty period.
