OS is Ubuntu 12.10 and device im trying to copy from is Android phone or digital camera.
In both cases moving single pictures to attached usb 2.0 hdd or sata disk is OK, but smaller videos and bunch of pictures will grind everyhing to halt. Nothing freezes, but i can start numerous other file transfers and non of them move afterwards.
Process manager shows about 6-8mb of files transferred and thats all, process itself may run at low speed, i have not checked, but it is unusable anyways.
Thats why i have been using w7 for file transfers.
There are similar topics, not with the exact problem, maybe someone can assist?
