I am using Windows 7 32-bit, and have a Transcend 8 GB USB 2.0 flash drive. I have formatted the drive to NTFS using the Windows format tool.
The problem is that when moving or copying files to and from the drive I get write speeds of only 1.5 - 2.5 MB/s. I read articles on the net, and changed the caching policy to "better performance" and formatted to NTFS. Still no change.
How do I fix it?
I meant NTFS.
My pen drives a Transcend JetFlash 500.
I used it on a different computer with Windows XP, and a particular 2.55 GB folder took 5 minutes to copy. The time to copy to my computer with Windows 7 was 6 minutes.
So I guess the problem is not with the reading, rather writing mostly.
I have read, people writing at 20MB/s.
So how do I optimize my writing speed?
