• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

Very slow transfer speed..

0.016088 MB/s is extremely slow, that is 8.6% of the theoretical speed for USB 1.0 slow speed.

Probably the MacOS is including the drive in Spotlight and that is slowing things down.
System Preferences -> Spotlight -> Privacy
Click + to add the drive to the opt-out list.

I would stop the copy, do the above, remove the drive, insert the drive, start the copy to see if the speed is better.

Well, there could be a lot of different causes of that message.
  • If a finder is open on the drive
  • If the copy was not cancelled
  • If there is virus scan running on the device
  • If Spotlight is still indexing the drive (most likely cause)
There is nothing wrong with the USB port from what you showed.
