Best Way To Get Max File Transfer Speed (network, Usb, Etc)


I use a laptop for my main rig (hp dv8300), and i am setting up a nas in the near future and i'm trying to come up with the best way i can get the most speed to dump data to it. It's a 945gm express chipset. I have usb 2. 0, firewire of some flavor (i can't figure out which one it is), pci card slot, express/54 card slot, 100mb nic, intel something b/g mini pci nic. Ideally i would want to get a 1000mbps nic, but since my nic is onboard i can't really swap it out. A 1000mbps usb 2. 0 nic would still limit me to the 300mbps speed of usb 2. 0. 132 mbps for express card. Right now my best idea is just to get a wirless-n mimo mini pci nic and swap it in. Unless someone has a better idea.

Can't Do Anything Else When Transfer A Large File Using Usb

So i've been running x64 for the better part of a year now on the rig in my specs. Within the last 3 months or so if i transfer a large file to any one of my various brand external hard drives i can't really do anything else on my computer, everything kinda just slows down and the usb transfer takes precedence. The strange part is my cpu usage is only like 5-15% on a single core while this is going on. I know i should most likely nuke my os install and start over but i'm curious as to what caused this. In my many years of pc tech support i have not ran into this particular issue. I have seen similar caused from crappy via usb controllers but not this exact problem. Ideas?

Usb Drive Wont Work After Unplugging It During File Transfer

I gave this usb flash drive to a friend as a gift http://www.Supertalent.com/products/stt_usb_detail.php

Its the 8gb pico usb drive, ive had one for over a year and ive had no problems but my friends wont work after he told me he accidentally unplugged it during a file transfer on his mac. If i plug it in to a mac it wont see the drive, not even the disk utility. If it plug it in to a vista machine, it gets seen but it says "unknown device" and it wont show up under disk management either. Is there any possible way to fix it? This is a first for me since i thought you could not damage usb drives if you unplugged them during a file transfer (except for normal data corruption). Any ideas?

Hdd Transfer Speed Over Usb

I keep on wondering how come my hard drives have such a low transfer speed with usb. I have a mybook and a usb docking station. Both of them cannot transfer past than 20mbs. When i switch back to sata, i get at least 3 times the transfer speed (more for my faster drives). Sata is faster than usb, i can understand that. But usb 2. 0's rated transfer rate is 60mbs, what exactly is throttling the speed?

Transfer Speed On Usb Is Very Slow - Seagate 160 Gb Hd

I am having couple of problems with my trasnfer speed. I just bought a new enclosure case for my seagate 160gb hd. I am finding the transfer speed is very slow compared to anthoer enclosure case i have containing 20gb hd. My pc has usb 2. 0. On my old case, i get a speed of about 23 mb/sec majority of times. My new case is only giving me about 15 mb/sec. What can i do and how do i make it faster? I even exchanged the two hd to see if it is the hd that is causing it to be slow, but i found out it is the enclourse case. When i put the 160gb hd in the old case, it transfers at 23 mb/sec.

File Transfer Between Hard Drives Causes Computer Crash

I recently installed a new drive into my storage server (one of wd's 1tb green drives) and transferring files to it sometimes results in a computer crash. There were no issues before this latest drive was installed. Crashes have as of yet only happen when this drive is being written to, though i do not write to the other drives often so i am not sure at this point. Crashes happen much more frequently when there is increased disk activity anywhere else in the system. The system is built as follows:

Amd athlon x2 4050e 2. 1ghz dual core cpu
Jetway jnc62k w/ nvidia geforce 8200 mainboard
Os hard drive: hitachi travelstar 5k160 ata-6
Storage drives: 3x1gb wd10eads sata
Windows xp mce w/ sp3

Any suggestions where i should start troubleshooting? Does this sound like a problem you've heard before? I've run smart diagnostics on all the hard drives running wd's diag tools, and it's all come back just fine.

Run Without A Page File, Notice Speed Boost

I just wanted to do some general testing to see what the difference is. I have 1gb of ddr400 ram, so i figured that i can run without a page file. I did some tests in sisoft sandra, ran some quake iii tests, just to see? I even ran some tests with about 30 programs and about 30 instances of ie open loading different pages. The benchmarks where exactly the same +/- 2%. The onlything i notice is that i notice a speed in my startup and overall windows is more responsive. (Not like it was sluggish before) but i can notice a difference in somethings that load. Any thoughts?

Usb Message: Hi-speed Device Plugged Into A Not Hi-speed Port

I'm rebuilding my system, and have two pci cards with firewire and usb ports. I remember before the rebuild i plugged them in and they worked. That was nice. Now, i installed them one at a time. The first one prompted no notifications, but when i plugged a device into it it warned me that it was a hi-speed device plugged into a not hi-speed port. I installed the second one, and it prompted the new hardware wizard, asking for drivers, but said it couldn't find them although i had dsl connected. The cards did not come with any disks and there was no problem getting them to work before.

Difference In Transfer Rate From Usb To Usb And Hdd To Usb

I have an seagate 160gb external hdd (fat32), and i was wondering if moving the page file to the external disk would garner any extra performance gains. I was also wondering if there is a difference in the transer rate from the usb->usb and hdd->usb. I was thinking about using hdtach on my external drive, so i think i'll give that a try.

Sudden Issue With File Sharing On Network

I have a wireless laptop, and whenever i try to access shared documents from my main computer, it knocks me off my wireless connection. It hasn't done this before just all of a sudden. Other pc's when they are hard wired up they can get to those files no problem. I have file sharing approved on the firewall. In-fact i reset the firewall to default then made sure it was approved. Im pretty much lost as to what to do next?

Network Line Speed Testing

I recently had a 100 mbps connection between two locations established, but it seems slow (i.e. , A 590 mb file is taking 30+ minutes to copy, when by my calcs it should be like 47 seconds). What i am wondering is if there is any hardware i can put on a line to determine the actual line speed we are seeing? This would be of great help to me if i could just verify that the line is slow.

Network Connection Speed Issue

There are 4 computers and a printer connected to a switch. Well, this computer i'm on right now was just set up about 3 days ago, fresh install of vista (even though i'd prefer xp lol). The 3 computers that were already here get 150+ kb/s download speed. Ever since i hooked this one up and started using it, it hasn't gone faster than 30 kb/s, and stays about 19-25 kb/s. The ethernet port on the motherboard is bad, so there's an ethernet/network card instead. It worked fine at my house, which is where this computer was at before being formatted and brought here. I don't know how to tell which ethernet/network card i have, so i have no drivers. I'm guessing that's a big part of the problem. Any help?

Slow Connection Speed With Wireless Network

Okay so i have a brand new dell laptop with the nicest wireless-n capable card you can buy and with all of the drivers up to date, i also have a netgear wireless-n capable router with all of its firmware up to date. Here is the problem, i can only get a max of 58 mbps, even though i have the router set to "up to 300 mbps" and i am close to the router with no interference. I have high speed cable internet from cox. When i check the status of my network, it only goes to 58 mbsp max, but sits around 26mbps and fluctuates a good amount in between.

Very Slow Usb Transfer / Detection

I have asus m3n78-vm mobo and it has some problems in it. I think my usb ports are not running as fast as they can. When starting windows it takes ages to detect my external hdd , buffalo drivestation 500gb usb 2, and transferring like 300 mb file from internal hdd to that external is pain in the ass slow. Transferring from external to internal it has no problems. Files fly from buffalo to my internal sata hdd. But if i try to move file from that internal hdd to external buffalo, windows says it takes about 10 minutes to transfer one 300 mb file and it does also take that long, so what a heck? Im confused. I checked bios and all usb 2 features are on in bios. I also had some weird io shutdown problems. Anyone has any solutions to this? My buffalo also has some turbousb feature but dunno if it works. Oh and i use 32 bit xp pro with sp3 in it. Btw my old mobo dfi lanpary nf3 ultra-d did not have this problem with my external hdds. I have also tried all usb ports, and its the same problem.

Internet Speed Slows Down When Network Adapter Is Connected

Why does my internet speed slow down when my sister plugs her network adapter in her computer? I have a wireless-n linksys adapter and she has a wireless-g netgear adapter. When her adapter is not connected to her computer, my internet is super fast. When she plugs it in, my internet speed slows down way too much. Sometimes it doesn't even load up any webpages. Our main computer in the basement is connected to a wireless-n router and i connect to our network called "linksys". She connects to the same router but her connection is "ng_profile"? I don't get it, i just want my speeds to be normal.

Usb Transfer Files Won't Read

Everytime i transfer files to my usb like ms word document, pictures, and music. The file won't read! Why is this happening? For instance, if i try to open the picture i saved, all i got is a "mini x" and if i try to play music it won't play either. Next, i created folders with some documents inside it. If i try to open that folder, there is no file displayed. At first, i thought it was a bunch of hidden files. So i tried to change the settings to make invisible files visible. No luck. My files are nowhere to be found! If i try to delete it, i got an error message " cannot delete file. "

Note: i did error checking and also tried reformatting it. Unfortunately, its still not working. It still has a problem with reading/opening files. Worse, some of my files are freaking' hidden( despite making invisible folders visible)

Some additional info about the usb i'm using. 1gb kingston
Type:removable disk
Filesystem: fat32

Usb Port Speed Identifying Program

My asus p5q should have usb 2. 0 ports, at least all of the 6 on the rear panel, but using some with my linksys wusb54g makes winxp give me *** about not being 2. 0 ports and how i should check the list to use another. However it's not east to tell which ports are which. It would be cool if there was a program which presented usb ports and devices in a hierarchy, visually and showed you what was where. Or at the very least, i need something that spells out very clearly which ports are 1. 1 and which are 2. 0 just seeing an "enhanced" controller isn't helping.

How Can I Tell If My Usb Ports Are Regular Or High Speed ?

How can i tell if my usb ports are regular or high speed? I have 4 ports off the mobo, 2 ports off the mobo in the front of my case and an add on pci card of 4 more usbs. Os is xp pro with sp2. When i look in device manager i see a lot of usb ports/hubs. I hooked up an ipod the other day and it told me i didn't have any usb high speed ports. I reinstalled the drivers for the belkin pci card and that seemed to make the pci card's ports happy with 2. 0, do these drivers work on the mobo's usb ports too? I thought xp would take care of the mobo's ports and make them 2. 0.
