can any1 help me…my wd passport is slow at transfering data from my pc…i dont know whats the problem…im newbie with this stuffs…can someone help me?
Well for a start what OS are you using? How big are the files? How slow is the transfer speed? Is this a manual transfer or are you using backup/sync software?
I’m having the same problem … it was working last month just fine… recently when trying to access the HD it’s really slowing… when tried to copy a file it used to be transferred at 13mb/s … now it’s like 13kb/s … I’ve tried to format the HD but still the same results… I have the Passport 500GB external HD… using Windows 7…
I hope it’s not the hardware problem…
any help would be greatly appreciated… thanks!
i am using Windows 7 and my passport essential SE , having same problem , it is taking to ages to copy files from my passport to my hard disk , even opening the file size of 10KB takes 10 minutes , i tried scan using diagnositcis but test failed
I am facing the same trouble low transfer. Already registered My Passport 1TB sata 3. But may be this is the best what can provide WD - speed of 9.8kB for Your money. I asked for help on the WEB and still I am waiting.BTW I am also under Windows 7 HP with AMD dual core 1.94GHz and 8G RAM Corsair/1333MHz. The matter is in case I am using another external drive to transfer the same movies I am getting speed of about 28MB to 37MB. Just to clarify not to be extra questions - I have read and followed the User manual a used all the recommended settings step by step, My Passport is NTFS formatted but this is the best speed I can get…
Will appreciate any comments or help/assistance, if any ;).
