Ticket #4261 (new defect)
Slow transfer speeds from USB disk
|Reported by:||cortana||Owned by:|
When converting a physical machine into a VirtualBox guest, I attached a USB external hard disk to the host computer, and connected it to the guest. Then I started to transfer data from the disk to the guest.
I noticed that the data was only being transferred at about 1.1 MB/sec. Perhaps co-incidentally, this is the speed of a USB 1.1 hub. I checked the kernel logs and saw that the device was being attached to an EHCI controller, and was being configured to run in high speed mode, so I'm not sure what to try next...
