  1. USB File transfer speed drops to 0 bytes and goes back up to normal multiple times


    Hi, I just bought a new Kingston USB flash drive and when I tried it I noticed that when copying a file from the laptop to it file transfer speed keeps reducing to zero and freezes then goes back to the normal transfer speed and I tried it on a different laptop and I had the same issue. I searched for a fix to the problem but I came empty-handed and I need to know if the problem is in the flash drive or not so I can return it



    The USB is 3.0 and I am connecting it to a 3.0 USB port. I made it on better performance from device manager but it didn't change anything the problem remains the same



    An image shows the transfer, and when copying large files it makes the transfer take longer time than it should take

    USB 3.0 transfer speed drops to 0 only on one port. USB port and external drive are NOT defective.

    I have a Dell XPS 13 laptop with two USB 3.0 ports. I connect a Seagate expansion drive to the left USB port and transfer a 4GB test file. It transfers about 1GB at 150MB/s and then transfer speed drops to 0. Then it picks up again after 3-4minutes, then
    drops again intermittently.

    I connect the same Seagate drive to the right USB port. The same 4GB file transfers with a constant speed of approximately 150MB/s. Thus the Seagate drive is not defective. Perhaps the left USB port is defective.

    I connect a Sandisk 128GB flash drive to the left USB port (that is now suspected defective). It transfers the same 4GB file with constant 130MB/s speed, no speed drops!

    Each step is reproducible 10x.

    I am out of my wits here.

    Flash drives File transfer speed drops to 0 regularly

    Long shot.

    Plug in the USB thumb you normally use, the erratic one. In My PC, make a note of it's drive letter. Eject it.

    On the machine in question, the one that is acting weird, go to Device manager.

    Click Portable Devices. Look for that drive letter and uninstall (right click>uninstall device) any and all occurrences of it.

    Plug the thumb drive back in. Windows will reinstall the driver/device.

    Try your operation that was running weird with the fluctuating speeds.
