Help! MyPassport 1 TB very very slow


I recently bought a 1TB WD MyPassport and put all my media on it. I removed the security files and accessory files that come with it because I did not want to deal with any of the security features etc…

It is now extremely slow less than 1 MB/sec transfer rates. I think it might be going into standby. I use it with a sony vaio and can not figure it out. I am not very technical and would be appreciate any help to get this improved. 

can you please help me with this. 

thank you in advance for your input. 


Try the drive on a Desktop compuiter connecting the USB directly to one of the ports in the back of the tower and let me know the outcome.
