Seems to me the kernel is detecting the USB key correctly and as a USB
2.0 device:

And I see the speed as "480" here too:

T:  Bus=01 Lev=00 Prnt=00 Port=00 Cnt=00 Dev#=  1 Spd=480 MxCh= 6


I'm starting to think something is not quite right with the USB key (or
in the way it's being detected): I tested transferring files to my PSP,
but didn't see any of the same speed issues. I was able to copy large
files back and forth without any problems.

I should also add that after retesting the key with my HP laptop running
Fedora 10, the max speed I saw was 8 MBps.  The transfers would start
off in the 20+ MBps range, and then drop down to 8 MBps.  That's faster
than my desktop, but it's still dismal performance.

I need to try the stick on a Windows machine next.  I'm hoping I can
eliminate the USB key as the source of the problem.
