from external hard disk to the hard disk in pc just mark any file that i need to copy and ( copy ) then ( paste )copying compressed and videos
Additionally, what speed is being reported?If you are using KDE a Notification icon should appear in the panel (and begin "circling") clicking on that brings up a window with details of transfer speed - how long it will take (not always very accurate) and so on.

IS the drive USB2 (or 3, etc.). What is your chipset (is the port you're using USB2)?Do you have the complete specs for your PC, as well as the external drive?USB2 "bursts" to 480 mbps, but generally runs quite a bit slower, otherwise...it can impacted by other system activities...I could see large file copies "stuttering" under certain load conditions.When it "hangs", can you check dmesg for any indicators of other possible causes. please?

what version of pclinuxos are you using?what kernel are you using?Somebody else in another reported a system free when trying to copy a 10GB file to an external drive.The two could be related some how.
BTW : i have now 4 GB , If i purchase a memory "another 2 GB"Do you think it will solve my problem or not .
The problem seem to be around memory catching, and it shows up when writing to destination file is much slower than reading from source file.More memory will not solve the problem as the problem will come back if the transferred file is large enough.
