Why Writing to Flash Drive So Slow?
I have installed hotplug from the Mandriva DVD. i dunno whether that is causing any conflicts.
I have another hunch. When i copy a 700MB etc. file, the first 20% or so copies in normal time, then only it slows down (even below 1 MBPS). so i think this is a buffering problem. Another reason for me to think this way is that when i give the command to unmount after copying, it takes a lot of time to do so and all the while i can see the light in the pen drive flashing which suggests that Linux is still writing to my pen even after the copying is over and i try to unmount.
i know its not a problem with my pen drive cuz i tried multiple pens (all kingston) with the same result.
Is this a buffering problem. Is Linux takin too much time to flush the buffer? If so how can i solve this.
