Hi guys. I have been experiencing this problem for quite sometime. My friend has an 8GB Kingston pen drive. It works fine on all PCs except mine. I can transfer data from the drive into my PC but not the other way round. Whenever I try to transfer files from my computer into the pen drive the transfer speed drops to a crawl and the operation invariably fails. Also, I have noticed that data transfer speeds to and from my external Maxtor HDD is much faster than normal USB pen drives. Any ideas? I must also mention that the drive used to work fine before. But it was once pulled out of another friend's PC while it was being formatted as there was some problem. Since then these issues started on my system. However, no one else seems to have this problem with it.
