Slow USB 2.0 Transfer Rate Windows 7

Hi,

I am running a Windows 7 Ultimate 64x 4GB RAM i am using a USB flash drive 2.0 & i am getting very slow transfer rate from my local PC to usb. i am getting 5KBps which is very poor. I am using TeraCopy to transfer my data to USB, i have tried a few things to try to resolve my issue.

Defragment of my HD
Installed Latest Chipset Drivers
Changed my USB drive in Device Manager to High Performance
Tried running my machine in safe mode/no network lead

I have formatted my USB drive but still the issue persists

Would anyone be able to help me with this issue?

Is it an issue with the USB drive? Have you tried from another computer to see what type of speeds you are getting? Have you tried using different USB ports. Is the BIOS Set to only use USB 1.1 instead of 2.0?
Some ports have lower power.  tray a different USB port on the same pc.

also try the usb device on another computer,  perhaps even though it is USB 2.0 compliant there is an issue with the device itself.

also disable virus scan before you start to transfer the files.  this can have a HUGE impact on file transfers.
I would say don't use teracopy.  Have you tried xcopy or robocopy?  I personally am not a fan of teracopy.  Also, it could be the usb drive itself.  What is the make and model?  If it is generic it potentially may be using a lower grade chipset.

test if it transfers faster on another pc - to see if the probblem comes from the flash stick, or the PC
