  1. USB 3.0 2TB drive extremely slow


    Ok, I got an external usb 3.0 drive and thought it was defective at first because on windows 10 it is extremely slow and looking at monitor I can see it pass more time pause then anything. But then I made the test on linux and wow it is unbelievably fast.


    The problem is really only on WIN10, no mather what I try it pass more time doing nothing then otherwise.


    If I copy any files, it the best scenario it goes copy for 5 seconds, reaching about 18mb/s max and then timeout for at least 15 seconds or more.


    On linux, there is not such issue, it just works like a regular SSD or HDD.


    Anyway, it seems there is no better driver on WIN10, at least I could not find any.


    Anyone can fix the driver or suggest a definite solution.


    Thank you

    :)

  2. Cannot Access New Seagate 2TB Expansion USB 3.0 Drive

    i just purchased a new seagate 2tb expansion usb 3.0 drive and no matter what i do i can not access it. when i first received it i plugged it in, open it once it showed up in pc, tried to copy files to it and was told to no disk in drive d, checked properties and they said 0 used 0 available. i opened partition wizard, wiped the drive, formatted, assigned name "universal two, and letter n and now when i click on it i get "please insert a disk into the drive". i think the below images below are pretty much self-explanatory. even thought disk management and partition wizard say it's drive n i still get "there is no disk in drive d. please try again. i'm completely out of ideas, please any ideas and or suggestions. thanks

  3. Is my 2TB USB 3.0 external portable drive too slow?

    You are connected at USB 3.0.

    Code:
    Can you run CrystalDiskMark Crystal Dew World ? The interesting metric here is the sequential so you can just run that one:

  4. USB 3.0 2TB drive extremely slow

    Extremely slow USB 3 HDD transfer rate on one PC but not the other

    I have this Transcend Storage Jet external HDD. I was using it with my desktop Win 10 which supported USB 2.0. The transfer rate was satisfactory over 15MB/s. However, when I tried it on my new Lenovo ideapad 510 which supports USB 3.0 and using its USB 3.0 port, the transfer rate is going at a few 100 KB/s.

    The copy window seems to pause a long time interval and only updates the speed and progress bar for just 1 frame every so often. Below is the CrystalDiskMark of this drive:


    USB 3.0 2TB drive extremely slow 2uMq6.png


    I've also tried the USB 2.0 ports on my laptop. The results are similar except for SeqQ32T1 and Seq which achieved > 30 MB/s

    I've tried the following methods.

    Disable Quick Removal Method

    I've tried the most accepted answer of this: Extremely slow USB transfer speed but the problems are:

    1. It doesn't work
    2. My old PC also does quick removal and there was no transfer problem.

    TeraCopy method

    However, using TeraCopy, the speed can achieve 32MB/s with the USB 2 port on my laptop. But this is just avoiding the problem, not actually solving it. Actually, the result is exactly the same using Explorer to copy.
