    After I reformatted my hard drive, it's been taking longer to copy files. When I transfer music from iTunes to my iPod, it takes longer than it would've before the reformat. Also, when I copy files from and to my external hard drive, that takes longer. For example, it would take about 1 min or less to copy a 700 mb .avi movie file from my computer to the external hdd. But now, it takes about 4~5 min. I never installed or downloaded anything that would purposely expedite the process. Plus, since this hard drive has no viruses (100% sure), and more available memory, I would assume a faster process.
    Any suggestions or ideas?
    Thanks
