I'm currently copying about 300GB of MP3's from an External HD to another one ( 1TB model). Trouble is, each track is taking 4 or 5 seconds, is this about right or not?

Thanks

Is your external drive USB1, USB2 Hi-Speed or Firewire?

How large is you average MP3 file?

Are the source files likely to be fragmented?

hi first of all use the disks windows defragmenter tools on your 300GB..them unplug all other USB cables from the PC for example printer scanner camera webcam..so that your computer resources is focus on the 300GB activity...happycomputer

1x16 meg song 320kbps USB2 Hi-Speed to USB2 Hi-Speed = 1 second.
