How painfully slow? Are we talking usb1 speeds? If so, 2 things to
check: a) that it is in fact a usb2 port (happened to me only last week
,-), b) that the appropriate usb2 driver is being loaded for the
controller. The order in which the modules are loaded on boot makes a
difference, if a usb1 driver is loaded first and registers for the
device, then you'll get usb1 performance. Check the output of the kernel
boot log, see if that gives any clues.
If not, does this particular flash drive work fine in other computers
etc? If so, not a clue, maybe someone else can suggest something.
