G-RAID 8TB Removable SLOW transfer speed 0G03244

Why is it so slow?
20-30mbs on USB
40-70mbs on Firewire 800

I tried it on two separate Macs and still got the same result. My 3TB G-Drive is even faster. The G-Raid is brand new.

FireWire 800 that is exactly as fast as it can possibly go. That is the max speed of FW800 and 20-30 on USB is the max speed a USB 2.0 port can support.

Make sure you are using a USB 3.0 port on your computer and the device itself has USB 3.0 or it won’t go faster than what you are getting currently.
