    It could be accessing the drive in USB1 speed, or the files could be terribly fragmented (unlikely).

    Is the eHDD receiving external power, or just through the USB? Is the USB cable too long? Is the USB cable old or damaged? Are the contacts between each device and the USB cable clean? All of these things can cause problems with USB storage devices.
