Default Anyone experience super slow usb transfer speeds?

As a test I copied over a 700mb xvid file and it immediately popped up saying eta 12 mins.
I watched it and was closer to 8 or so.
When It was done I drag/dropped it onto my samsung galaxy S and only took 3 minutes..

Kind of reminds me of my old usb "2.0" ipaq, where a 700mb file took 15 minutes. I gave up and got an sd card reader and would transfer to card, then stick it back into the device.
