USB flash drive - slow transfer problem all of a sudden?


I have a 16GB flash drive and when I'm copying files, speed varies from high 40s mb/sec to single digits mb/sec. Why is it not consistent?

Im kind of interested in this too. I have a sandisk cruzer and with most systems I transfer at least 15 m/s but on my laptop I get maybe 7 ot 8.
