    slow upload speed from comp to micro sd

    anyone having this problem? i've tried uploading through usb and micro sd adapter. transfer speed is kinda slow. i took out the micro sd from the droid and it looks generic. could it be the the card? i saw a san disk micro sd on ebay for around $50 and i kinda don't wanna spend that much unless i absolutely need to.

    I believe all the ones that came with the Droid are Sandisk, mine is. I've experienced slow transfers too when transferring alot of data. Its just how it is. The card is not high speed.

    It certainly takes a few minutes. The best I can remember, last time I transferred a movie a little over 1gb it took about 10 minutes.

    The phones come with a sandisk 16gb class 2 microsd card. Not fast at all. Also you might want to double check what usb ports you are using on your computer. Mine for instance, has usb 1.0 ports on top that only do a few hundred k/s on file xfers but the bottom couple are usb 2.0 and they usualy do 3-5 ish mb/s...

    just something to think about.

    It is slow on USB 2.0 also... filling mine with music too HOURS.

    I did not try to put the SD right in the laptop though... that would probably be faster but corrupt it at your own risk.

    sorry to say but you either are not using usb 2.0 ports (which is what i'm guessing, despite that you say you are) or theres something wrong with your computer or the chip itself.

    I've xfered an half season of startrek voyager 6 gigs and only took like 10 mins or so

    Brand new Dell XPS, it is USB 2.0... This was prior to the 2.0.1 OTA however and since it is full I have not tried it since.

    So you are pulling 1.5GB/min+?
