    That's how long it was going to take to transfer video files from my USB2 external HD to my pro through one of the ports on the back. I swapped to another port and using the same files it showed 11 minutes. What's happening? Is the one port faulty or maybe USB1? :confused:

    I ran a test on all other ports and they showed 11 minutes as well.

    The port probably initialized in USB1 mode. I had a similar issue and just switched around the things I had plugged into those ports. All three are now in USB2 mode. You can see the info on the USB port using the system profiler.
