I have a Class 6 microSD card in my Nexus One.

Rooted, running CM7 nightlies. Phone plugged in USB 2.0 port.

When the phone is on and is in USB mode, transfer rate to card does not exceed 100 kB/s!

In Recovery (Amon RA), the speed is about 1.8 MB/s, so that's fine. I know it should be higher but this is still fine.

So - the question is obvious - what the hell is wrong? Why are my writing speeds so slow?

Thumbs down
Have the same issue with a Sandisk class 2 MicroSD card. Seems to be something wrong with CM7. With everything else remaining the same, never had this issue with CM6 though. CM6 would easily give me transfer rate of 2 Mbps and above while writing to the card from the PC but now it always sticks at 768 kbps going at most upto 819 kbps once in a while

I once have this issue on a cm7 nightly build too
but after flashing RC1 plus IR's CFS kernel
everything's back to normal
maybe it's a problem of the USB driver
try to update to a newer build or change the kernel

It's not the USB driver. Couple weeks ago when I still had my Hero the transfer speed was much higher. From the day I got my N1 (even with stock ROM) I had this problem. I wil try other kernel.

The problem is .37 kernels, although going by the above post I guess IR's latest has solved it... will have to try.
