It could be that the USB port you are using to transfer the data is not a "High Speed 2.0" enabled port.
Does it give you a pop-up message when you plug it in, one that says "This device can perform faster".
If so, It is not a High Speed USB port. Try using another USB port on your PC.

External hard drive slow


Well, an external harddrive is always slower than an internal one. A USB-port is checking on a regular basis for other devices, which might got hooked up. It's a common mistake a lot of people oversee. So while transfering data, there are other tasks / jobs done at the USB-port, slowing down data-transfers.

Slow transfer external hard drive


Both devices must have USB 3.0 capability to enjoy the high transfer speed that 3.0 has to offer. Check the other device (not the Buffalo) as see if it has USB 3.0 support.
First, make sure the firmware for the external and the source device are up to date. Next, try swapping the cable.
If that doesn't work, check the source and target hard drives to symptoms of failure. The transfer speed will be slow if one of the drives is failing. The manufacturer of the drive should have free diagnostic tools on their website. If not try WD Lifeguard Diagnostics or Seagate Seatools. If you are running Linux, go with smartmontools.
If the drives are healthy and if 3.0 is supported on both devices check the transfer speed with different files. Transferring one large file is faster than transferring a lot of small files.
If all else fails call Buffalo and request a replacement.

Is this engine normally slow on pull of?.... on d 4x4 models ? is it easy to disconnect the transfer case and vehicle to function normaal without 4 wheel drive?


Slow? Depends on what you are pulling? Is it just the truck itself? Or are you trying to pull a backhoe? The only thing you will disconnect on the transfer case is the propeller shaft, and it will run fine, but I don't think you will gain anything by it. The transfer case does nothing till it is engaged, it doesn't even spin, the power goes through to the rear, untill you put it in 4 wd, Hope this helps.

My pentium iii desktop pc has 256 RAM . though it is very slow.copy -paste works very slow in 2gb flash drive.


Maybe your computer is using USB 1.1 that has slower data transfer than USB 2.0, buy a new PCI USB 2.0 controller so you can transfer your files faster

My pictures transfer to the computer too slowly.


If you are transferring Tiff files or video clips, you can expect the transfer to take much longer than it does for JPEG files, due to large file sizes. The transfer speed is especially slow when you are using a serial connection. If your system has less than 32MB RAM, the transfer speed may be slow. Try using virtual memory. See your computer documentation or system help for more information. Check the port setting in your Windows Control Panel. You may need to set your port to a faster speed. See your Windows documentation or help system for more information. If you're transferring pictures to an application through EPSON Photo!3 and you use the PhotoEnhance(tm) feature, the transfer will take longer. Try transferring without PhotoEnhance.
