    my transfer rates on USB are really really slow.it's quite embarassing to witness. i think they are travelling at USB 1 speeds. is there anything i can do to see if i've got a problem? it takes like 5 minutes to put 20 tracks on my nano...that must be wrong, they're not massive tracks.

    any help would be great

    cheers :)

    Is this on your PowerBook G4? Is it the same with all ports? Could you try the iPod on a different computer?
