    Hello, I have recently had problems with the transfer speed of my console's usb ports, when I copy a game from the usb to the internal hard drive it reaches a maximum of 2 mb / s, it takes almost an hour to copy a game of 7 gb. And when I try to load a game from the external hard drive it takes more than 5 minutes to load, I hope you can help me, thank you very much

    How fast is You USB device? Maybe it have reading speed around 2MiB/s (I doubt it have 2Mb/s... learn the units, there are for a reason). :P

    the ps3 usb is 2.0 so it much slower than modern usb. but also some cheap usb memory sticks (and sd cards) are just slower than they should be.

    i just bought a 128gb memory stick for $10. it only does about 8-10 megabytes per second when copying from my pc. my name brand 32gb does 20 megabytes a second. copying many small files makes it go even slower.

    Yes, some chinese usb drives are slower, but I have a Samsung usb external disk, in my pc reaches 18 - 22 mb/s, but in my ps3 only reaches 2 mb/s, I cant play the games stored in my disk, the load times are eternal.
    You think maybe if I change the usb ports for New ones the problem Will solve?

    first i would i check to see if the drive needs to be defragmented.

    also try both usb ports (just in case)
