Default USB Speed vs S9

So my S9 is pretty slow when it comes to USB transfer and even browsing through the PC.. in fact, it seems far slower than USB 2.0 should be. I've seen others with the same problems with their S9 and was wondering whether the J3 has improved on this or not.. Anybody have any idea?

I have both. Copy times are identical, but not slow for either. Depending on the age of your PC and weather it's a notebook or not, the USB ports may not run at 2.0 speeds. Movie files can be very large as well, and won't copy anywhere as quickly as small photos or MP3 files will.

There are no portable players that come even close to theoretical USB 2.0 maximum speeds. If you get 10MB/s with any player you're already lucky. Formatting your player with the official SD Formatter app usually makes them a few MB/s faster than their stock formatting and stock cluster size. Using TeraCopy helps as well with transfer speeds.

Is it in MTP mode?

+1 to this. I use Teracopy at work and at home and it's fantastic for reliably moving numerous files at once. You'll never wonder what did and did not copy over, and you get a reliable estimate on the copy times, too. Very handy when I first loaded up my Sony NWZS545 recently. That thing is sloooow, but I need to keep the transfer mode the default way because I use it with subscription media.
