Slow Backup - Any ideas?

I am trying to backup approx. 45gb of docs, music (mp3), photos etc. (my Home folder on an iMac G5 Rev B, Mac OSX 10.4.7) to a LaCie 250gb D2 external drive.

I know that I have to do a full back up first and then the smart update feature can be scheduled for later subsequent back ups, however the speeds at which the back up is going is concerning...

The LaCie has been sent back due to this (back up only) and checked out and even replaced. The drive was connected at the local Apple store (due to a hardware issue) and files were copied from the LaCie to my hard drive in less than an hour. Using the same cables I use at home...

The back up has taken over 16 hours and is still going and is showing only 1/4 of the way completed. The copy speed is showing at 0.25mbs.

The cable is a Firewire 400 cable connected to the LaCie and to the iMac. I have tested the cable at work as well, and checked with another cable.

The bus is empty on the iMac with the exception of the drive firewire for the LaCie and the ethernet cable connection.

The last item is it shows 14gb being backed up when my music files alone equal 40gb.

Any assistance would be appriciated...
