Copying to MyBook Live slow (<20KB/S!)

I seem to have a few problems with copying data to my MyBook Live. It is impossible to copy anything from my windows 7 machine to the drive, the copying speed is less than 20kb/s. Strangely I can read data fine.

I have established the following:

  • the MyBook is fine, copying to the drive using another PC works fine

  • the router/cables are fine, see above (on the same router)

  • my PC (general settings/hardware) is fine, I can copy to normal external harddrives fine

I suspect this must be a driver/setting/windows issue but can’t get to the bottom of it.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, all updates, SP, etc.

Would really appreciate some help on this!

There seems to be a bottle neck somewhere

try connecting the drive to the computer in question and see if you have better performance
