DL 385 G6 USB External HDDs VERY slow.

Hi, we use a DL 385 G6, it has Small business server 2008, 64 bit installed on it.

I find that when I plug a USB2 External HDD into the USB port the data transfer is VERY slow, usually locks up after a while.

I have used the USB external drives on other PCs and they work fine, so I think it is something specific to the server.

I have no particular error messages on the server and apart from this issue, everything else seems to be working OK.

Help please.. :)

The External HDD works fine in other computers.

I'm going to flash the bios overthe weekend, but if it's still not working then I'm at a loss as to what is causing the problem.
