Poor data transfer rate in to the hard disk

When I’m trying to copy data in to my hard disk it is coping in Kbps.

The diagnostic test also failed

Test Option: QUICK TEST
Model Number: WD My Passport 0740
Unit Serial Number:  
Firmware Number: 1010
Capacity: 500.07 GB
Test Result: FAIL
Test Error Code: 06-Quick Test on drive 2 did not complete! Status code = 04 (Unknown failed test element), Failure Checkpoint = 96 (Unknown Test) SMART self-test did not complete on drive 2!
Test Time: 08:30:12, July 06, 2012

It sounds like a problem with the drive. Contact WD about replacing it.


I can confirm I have the same problem as the OP. I am getting 19 hour estimated time to trasnfer just 200GB. So it’s not a problem with the device. It could be aproblem with USB 3.

I tried even by changing the data cable … No use. I’m still seeing same speed
