I'm trying to move my photo archives (huge, several gigs) onto my iBook, even though I've had the iBook for a while. I'm running a Linksys router and the PC is connected via ethernet, while the mac is using AE to connect. I can see the mac just fine from the PC and can move files, it's just painfully slow. I tried connecting them directly and it was remarkably slow as well. Not sure what the problem is. I have checked settings and everything appears to be fine; both computers are browsing the internet at blazingly fast speeds, so that's not the problem-- the hardware is working fine in each of them. I turned the firewall off on the Mac. That didn't speed things up. I tried moving an mp3 just now, and it took 3 minutes to move a 4mb file. this can't be right. help!
