The speed of data transfer is normal here you can’t expect high data transfer rates.

Hard disk drive:

This is the best method to follow. It is somewhat tedious task but the data transfer rate is very high you can transfer giga bytes of data in few minutes, the knowledge you must have is to unplug the connections properly. Note what type of cable there using for the connections, there are mainly two types of cables SATA and IDE.
