Hi, I have a similar problem here as well, doesn't udev control the options to the mounted usb device.
I just created a 1G file and copied via terminal to a usb2 drive This was the timing results
When doing this via Thunar it starts off well and then seems to pause for quite a while.
How do we see the transfer rate in thunar ?
File system on usb device is
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 2048 31266815 15632384 b W95 FAT32
Tried a direct write of a 1G file to the usb2 drive and this is the result
1024000000 bytes (1.0 GB) copied, 271.299 s, 3.8 MB/s
4.5 minuses so dd was faster than the copy reported transfer rate is 3.8 MB/s (What are we expecting to achieve though ? / at least to match windoze transfer rate)
Replugged the usb device and it is using ehci
usb 2-1.3: new high-speed USB device number 49 using ehci-pci
ehci_hcd 39275 1 ehci_pci
