I love analogies that have no surface validity whatsoever, metaphors that challenge the imagination, and even allegories that go nowhere at all. In the random DVD of life, they are the fizz at the end of the mirror.

Good to know.

So, on that USB thing, what computer are you using, what USB drive or enclosure is it, and how do you have it connected.

While Steven might be right that it's a widespread current issue with the latest OS's, it could also be running at USB 1.0 speeds, which were very slow.

My keyboard is an oldie but goodie, and so I know that when I plug things into it they run at USB 1.0 speeds. That's fine for a jump drive if I'm moving a 50k document, but if I'm moving a couple hundred megs, I remember to plug it into the back of my iMac to get the much faster USB 2.0 speeds.
