I bought MyBook 1TB because I thought it would be faster than MyPassport (2.5 - 5400rpm). I have the WDTVLive and watch mkv of 12GB. It turns out that despite of being bigger and needing to be plugged it writes the same speed (or slower) than the 2,5MyPassport, not faster than 25MiB/seg.
Try plugging in the drive in the USB Port in the Back of the Tower Instead in the front
Because the USB ports Which is directly mounted on the Mother board is much faster than one in the front.
this will definatly make the data transfer much faster.
I Know, but it shouldn’t be as slow as the 2,5 ones in the same USB port. Thanks Anyway
