I have a Lacie portable hard drive and a laptop computer with a Belkin hi speed usb2 card. From specifications I should get a transfer rate of 480mb/s. I am only getting about 4mb/s.It takes about one minute for photographs with a total size of 500megs. Any help or ideas will be much appreciated.

Is the Lacie portable hard drive USB 2??

480 Mbps - I think this is MegaBITS not MegaBYTES.

One minute for 500 MegaBYTES - sounds about right...
