I have a WD 2TB External Hard Drive and I am currently transferring some blu ray files from my laptop to the drive but the file transfer speed is extremely slow. It is currently transferring at 8MB/s. I stopped the transfer and tried copying another file to the external drive and it transferred at 50MB/s. Is there something wrong with my external or is it just the blu ray files?
The blu ray files are located on my laptop hard drive and the files I transferred at 50MB/s were mkv files.
Any assistance appreciated

When I changed the folder location and transferred a single file the file speed transferred quicker momentarily at 50MB/s then the file speed dropped back to 8MB/s
Currently analyzing my laptop hard drive
