Bardebay, I am wondering if you are serious on this subject. You should not have to 'make your transfer speed slow' with a USB 1.0/2.0 drive. If you are transferring from a USB 1.0 or 2.0 external hard drive, your USB 3.0 and 3.1 ports are backwards compatible with USB 1.0/2.0.
Just plug it into your USB port and go!

I honestly have to wonder if you are trolling here now that I rethink the whole question and lack of proper English grammar.

and the speed that it R/W in task maneger is 8mb.is that normal for a usb 3.0 drive?
i am trying to transfer a mt2s (i think thats the format)file.a blue ray file.i have many of them and they are extremly big.and becuase of the transfering ,my hard drive became really hot.so i need to slow the speed down to make it fell better(hard drives fells better...no,just a joke.)

Don't copy so many files at once.

Transfer a few at a time, if very big files transfer one at a time.

It will be much quicker if you didn't use an external hard drive for that task anyway - - install a second hard drive internally and transfer to that instead.

Copying files to or from a healthy drive is no problem.

Now...if the drive was already faulty, all bets are off.
