Try formatting it in NTFS and see if that helps... As far as controlling the speed, what exactly is it you want to do?

Thanks for the answer, concerning controlling the speed : my idea was to run a "sress" test and see how the USB Memory performs.

May we format these devices in NTFS?

Sorry for the lag in response time..Been busy at work
As far as I know there is no stress test for a USB memory stick.. Depending how it is connected (USB, USB 2.0 etc) is how much the speed will be..
If you connect the Memory stick and boot into windows you can format it

Right Click my Computer...Click Manage....The next pop up windows click on Disk management.. Scroll down until you find you USB stick and click format and direct it to format it in NTFS..
I have done this on mine. But yours may differ depending on what kind it is...

You may be able to use something like RST and have it directed to your USB memory.. But not 100% sure. Again it is all in how it is connected that gives it...it's speed..
