    Very slow transfer of files from PC to TF201 via USB cable

    Hello!

    I try to transfer about 3gb of files from computer to my TF201, with the USB. But it's doing it at least at 15 hours, and not at 50% done yet.
    If i copy to external SDCard it make it fast.
    Why not qith the internal storage?

    Anyone knows a different way to do it?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum

    There is no way to tell for certain where the fact that it's that slow is coming from. But you could, if you want to do it over WiFi, use a file manager like ES File Explorer to browse your computer share and copy files or try WiFi File Explorer to do it. I think at 3GB it stressed the buffers in Android. If they were small files smaller batches might help.

    I get this to on my TFP to. It doesn't really matter what the size of the file is, it's always painfully slow. Most times I'm pretty sure it isn't actually transferring. I have just started using a SD card and dividing up the files if necessary. I'n in IT and spent a long time trying to figure it out and it must be the TFP.

    I generally use ADB commands in the terminal in Linux and it transfers files extremely quickly. I think it is actually a windows issue. I have the TF101 not the prime, but they shouldn't be that much different. In windows, I can't hardly drag and drop anything.

    I'm assuming you are using the terminal for the commands. Can you give examples if they are not simple copy/move commands?

    Thanks.

    to move stuff to the tablet I use

    "adb push /home/name/music/file.mp3 /sdcard/music/"

    to get stuff off of tablet I use

    "adb pull /sdcard/music/file.mp3 /home/name/music/"

    There are a lot of other commands specifically for ADB, but these 2 are the most useful for me in most cases.

    I'm with bfmetcalf on the Windows issue. When I upgraded from the TF101 to the TF201 I has both connected to the same computer and moved tons of stuff directly from the old to the new with minimal difficulty.

    i picked up a usb 3.0 card reader/writer for my pc, had to get a card too. it writes and reads much much faster, can't do anything about the speed of the usb in our prime docks but still if you do a lot of large files the time saved at the one end imho makes it a good investment so to speak especially as data files keep getting larger and larger.
