    zip drive takes forever and a-half to copy


    recently I've noticed that my usb zip drive takes an astoundingly long time when I copy files to it. 33 rpm files have taken almost 3 hours to copy... this is insane!
    does anyone know why this might be, or what I might do to solve this?
    yeeesh!

    thanks!

    Is it hooked up to a high-powered (aka USB 2.0) port?

    zip issues

    I thought usb2 was supposed to be backwards compatable with usb1.
    do I need a different driver to make this work better with a usb1 device?
