Very Slow USB Transfer to 16GB Flash Voyager

Hey all, I'm new here, so I apologize in advance if this has already been covered, I did search and didn't see much (Though I may have done the search incorrectly)

 

In any event, I got a 16GB Flash Voyager about a year ago. Lately, when I plug it into the computer and transfer stuff from the computer to it, it is VERY slow (7.6GB takes about an hour, whereas on my USB External, it's about 10 minutes.) Anything I might be missing here?

 

Please let me know, thanks in advance

Hi I used the 8GIG Voyager Flash drive for years as was extremely pleased with the transfer rate. So I went out and purchased the identical 16GIG - Very disappointed, the transfer rate is nowhere as fast. I would estimate about 6 - 8 times slower. What gives?

Not necessarily, you probably have an older 8 Gig drive you are comparing it to and may be based on SLC technology was was faster, but anything 16 Gig and above or made Since January of 2008 will be based on MLC
