When i copy files from my PC to my Samsung External HDD, the transfer speed is around 3mbps/sec
When i copy files from my Samsung External HDD to my PC, the transfer speed is around 15mbps/sec
How can i fix this issue?
Knowing that my pc only has USB 2.0 ports.
I tested a WD Elements HDD in my PC and the transfer speed is around 24 mbps/sec!
I also tested my Samsung HDD in a USB 3.0 PC and the transfer speed is about 40 mbps/sec
 
SO another drive works in your USB 2.0 port...

And your drive is fast in a USB3.0 port....

But that drive is not fast in your desired USB 2.0 port....

I suspect you will be wondering a solution for something like this for quite a while, as there does not appear to be a bad drive or USB port of cable issue, leaving you likely...permanently perplexed.
