    Friend had a problem with slow transfers to and from his usb2 external hard drive on his xp system. Did a bit of checking. Checked usb drivers through "control panel-system-devices". found "usb2 enhanced". that was good. Next step was to open "My computer and right click on the drive". Open up "Properties" tab. Then open "Hardware" tab. Select the drive in the drop down box. Then open "Policies" tab. Tick the box " Optimise for performance". Then "OK" way back out. Viola. Running as it should.
