Slow transfer rate from pc

    I'm using the usb cable, and am just getting around 3 MBps for large files. It takes too long to copy movies over.
    Is it because of the phone or because of the class of card I have (class 2)?
    What speeds are you getting? Should I get a new fast card?

    Hello g4rvd4, ive just converted the movie AVATAR to mpg4 format which made the file size 'after conversion' 222mb.

    And i used the usb cable to transfer the movie onto my desire, i got the following transfer rate ( 3.85mb/second ). The transfer took exactly 1minute 15seconds.

    The sd card in my phone is the 1 it came with 'whatever class that may be',

    it is probably the sdcard, as a class 2 has a minimum write speed of 2mbps (but, can be higher) and a class 6 of 6mbps. There is a striking difference between them, and i would not go lower than a class6 nowadays

    also, make sure that you are using a USB2 port and not an old USB1 (some pcs still have them and they are only a tenth of the speed of USB2).

    get a class6 card, you can find quality 8gb class6 cards for about GBP12 online but, be careful with ebay as there are many 'fakes' going around that say 16gb and are 16mb:eek:

    I've got the stock card in and I've just tested copying a 112Mb ISO onto my SD card in about 15 -20 seconds. So I make that between 6-7.5 Mbps.

    Thats was with a fairly crappy cable from fleabay that cos about

    I am getting about 4.5mb on my 16G, not sure on the class I thought it was either 2 or 4. Not that bothered I don't transfer large stuff often enough.
