My System Specs

Default Agonizing transfer speeds

Trying to throw windows on a flash card to do a reinstall of windows here at home when ive noticed a crap problem. When using the front USB on my case (700D), my transfer rates are brutal and running at roughly 25-50kb speeds. But when I use the back usb the transfer rate climbs up to 6MB/s. Any reason why my front panel usb is running like absolute garbage?

Also 6MB/s even seems pretty damn slow to me as well. Any ideas to how to speed this damn thing up? I dropped optical entirely in favor or USB based medium, but at this rate im better off going with optical.

Correction : its running at a whopping 4.23MB/s now.
I couldnt think of something snarky or interesting to put here this time around.

is your front panel plugged on to the usb 2.0 port and not the usb 1.0 that some mb have?
or the firewire plug which is the same as well i think

Re-format the USB stick with NTFS, should help a little. Yuck FAT32!
