:shock: Check this. Is it normal ? I checked it once, twice, thrice. I copied "The Dirty Picture" and several other movies from my Transcend pen drive to my Hard Disk. Look the read speed. It is about 130 MB/s before. :shock:

It took only a few seconds to get copied.
The speed is not just instantaneous. It lasted till the file get copied.

most probably an anomaly because of some kind of hard disk caching/optimization.such speed is not possible even on usb 3 pen drives(~50MBps).

Speed burst. or may be an error in reporting.

I think file was still being copied after the dialog box reported finished.

Do one thing. Copy it once more to a random location and immediately open WMP and go to the end of the video. Does the video play or not? Only that would confirm about file being copied so quickly.

I downloaded the dirty picture, sahi dhande galat bande and speedy singh at office and at home copied to my hard disk from my pendrive. All are same. The file can be played on WMP and not corrupted, its USB 2.0 pendrive I bought 2 yrs ago.

@bubusam13: The Speed is amazing....can try out the same file on TeraCopy?

I stopped using tera copy long before when I was using XP because I found it somewhat slow and I think it results in much fragmented drive. May be I am wrong but I don't use it.

It can be played.

I have experienced the same thing!!
Will post a screenshot tomorrow
But in my case it was 169 MBps(AFAIR) ;)
It was a 4.00 GB single rar file
But the speed only lasted about 15~ sec.
Copied 0.5 Gb in ~3-4 sec!!

X = Total size of the contents being copied (in MB)
Y = Exact ACTUAL seconds it took to copy (in Sec)
Z = X / Y = Actual speed, in MB per Sec. (Not what a dialog box says).

Though it actually 2-3 min to copy but still for USB 2.0 it is great
