I just bought five(5) item # 194449 16GB USB 2.0 Secure Flash Drives. I have two technical questions:
1) It took nearly 15 minutes to transfer 800MB from my new Dell Vostro 1720 computer to my empty 16GB flash drive. I then transferred another 1.2GB file from my Dell to the same 16GB drive and it took nearly 30 minutes. These transfer times are extremely extremely slow compared other 2.0 flash drives I use. Is there something I should be doing differently? Is there a problem with the drive?
2) I pulled my flash drive from its USB port after both transfers were made, and my computer went into character screen mode telling me it had a hardware error. Should this happen with a 2.0 Flash drive?
I used another of the new flash drives, and got the same slow transfer of data fromy PC to my new flash drive. My of is Windows 7. My computer is a new Dell and usually quite fast.
My order reference is ONJ04C08C4D5 with Invoice number 1233723-MP.
