REALLY SLOW: Imaging from Firewire/USB External onto Unibody Macbook Pro
 
Has anyone else experienced this?

I hook up the external drive to the Unibody MBP via a firewire 6pin to 9pin or usb. I boot up the Unibody MBP using Partition A on the external. When booted up, I am trying to image Partition B on the external to the MBP internal HD. It takes about 4 hours to transfer 20GB

I have done this a million times before with a pre-unibody MBP with a 20-30 min imaging time.


Ideas? :confused:

AntiVirus? Spotlight enabled on the drive(s)?

No Antivirus and no spotlight enabled drives.

I am running a mac pro 2 x 2.66 dual core with 5gb of ram

A brand new unibody macbook pro and a 6pin/usb2 external drive

I don't know, then: I've certainly tested on the Unibodies and they seem as fast as you'd expect... but I can't see 20GB taking 20 minutes. I'd expect 8-12MB/s or so.
