    Hey guys, I recently purchased a new USB 2.0 8 gig flash drive, and I've been attempting to use it as a memory card for my PS3 so I can carry my MLB saved games between my house and my brother-in-law's. I've been noticing that it takes a LONG time to transfer an only 23 MB file...is this normal? It takes around ten minutes. If it's not, how do I fix this? Thanks in advance for the help.

    10 Minutes is FAR too long for a 23mb file transfer. Plug in the usb drive to your pc and try the following:

    1. Right click on the USB drive ---> Select Properties
    2. Select the Hardware tab
    3. Under All Disk Drives --> Highlight your USB drive and select Properties
    4. Select the Policies tab ---> Optimize for performance
     
    Hope this helps.
