Actually my 8 GB Kingston pen drive is giving really bad read / write speed, does a pen drive have fixed life ??
 
Teracopy is useful for sequential file transfers.. And works better with bigger files.. They have a nice set of options like queuing and pause resume etc.. It will be useful no doubt.. But you better test your transfer speed through a software.. What is the transfer speed that you get?

BMG ftw!!
Just try it with different USB ports. If it still under-performs, then the above specified link will come into play.

5-6 MBPs is ok for a kingston drive, read should a bit higher, but write is ok.

Guys need urgent help!!!

I bought a new sony 16gb USM16GR pendrive and I'm getting write speed of Max 4mbs (tested with both 700, 2gb files)

Does anyone know the actual speed of this pendrive?
Should I ask for an replacement?

Did you format the pendrive to FAT32? If yes, that might be the culprit.

Always use pen drive in NTFS format for better speeds.

Anyway, that's way too low even for write, something is wrong with the pan drive, does it have warranty?
