Why do I get under 10 MBps reading from my USB HDD?

Recommended Posts

HDD is a USB WD My Passport Essential SE 1 TB (2.5"). Surely the USB 2.0 standard and the HDD are capable of much greater speeds. Why do I get < 10 MBps reading from it? Nothing else is using it and it's not fragmented.

If its doing the same thing in another USB port, then its probably faulty. We have had that happen with the WD 2.5" drive we were using here at work until I got sick of it and got it returned as faulty. New one tops out at the usual ~30MB/s max speed that USB can transmit at
