    The network interface is very slow, best I ge is about 4MB/sec. I have used two alternatives!

    1) Use the PC USB socket on the back (latest A110's only) and plug into a PC directly. It will show up as drive D: etc This is a bit faster but not much, I think is was maybe 7MB/sec

    2) Remove the disk and mount in a PC, about 20MB/sec

    Both require the EXT2 file system driver installing on the PC. Google for it and you will find it

    For (2), which is by far the fastest method, I bought one of those USB/SATA docking stations that allow you to quickly connect a SATA drive to a USB port. I picked on up on ebay for £20
