    I have transferred three movies, over 1.2gb large, ~20 mins last night.

    I, too, have win 7, USB 2.0 (should of gotten 3.0 when I was ordering this laptop).

    I do things wirelessly... Your wifi router will be faster than USB. There are apps what make your storage available through your home network and you just transfer files using any web browser.

    I initially had extremely long file transfer times. I did a lot of forum reading and someone suggested installing PDANet as it had a more recent driver for Windows. I run Win7-64. I downloaded an installed PDANet v. 3.02 on my GNex and I also installed the 64-bit version installer for my Win7 machine. Doing this in itself made the transfers radically faster via drag and drop with Explorer. I didn't use PDANet for the transfers. I also did not make a record of the Win-7 driver version installed by PDANet and I didn't make any transfer time measurements. It produced perfectly acceptable transfer times though.

    Since then I got an Windows 7 update notice for an updated driver for the "Samsung Android ADB Interface" and I installed it. It works fine as well. The currently installed driver version is 2.9.310.1125.

    I just transferred and timed the transfer of a 2.5 GByte file from my PC to the GNex. It took 8 minutes and 33 seconds. I hope this helps.

    I've had worse luck with transferring files to a microSD card. I think it could be a USB Driver issue as mentioned before.

    That sounds about normal for the beginning transfer time. Each time I have transferred a number of files I seem to get a ridiculously high amount of time to transfer at the beginning. But, there once it starts it decreases significantly.

    If you are mentioning PdaNet because of my message above I think I should clarify something. Upon re-reading what I wrote earlier I see that I was not precise. I *think* that I only really needed to install the Windows 64-bit PdaNet application on my desktop computer in order to get an adequate driver that provided much faster file transfer times. I transferred all my files using Windows Explorer - not PdaNet. I did install Pdanet on my GNex because I used it several times in the past on my OG Droid and it was handy to have in a couple of situations but installing it on the GNex probably wasn't necessary to get the faster file transfers to occur. It was probably the default Windows 7 driver that was causing the slow file transfers.

    Turn on USB Debugging.

    My transfer time for a 1.24 GB movie dropped from about 1 hour (initial time shown) to 8 minutes (initial time shown). The actual transfer time was just under 4 minutes.

    Significant improvement...

    For transferring files b/w android phone and any other device, Wifi is the fastest. Bluetooth and USB give lower speeds due to hardware limitations on the phone especially the memory card.

    To transfer via Wifi, what is needed is to create a hotspot and a server hosting the file(s) to be shared so other devices can connect to the hotspot, go to the server url and download files as needed. It would have been easier if android supported wifi direct to connect directly to any device wia wifi, but unfortunately it doesn't (http://forums.androidcentral.com/ama...i-hotspot.html)

    But still, you can use apps like fast file transfer that makes the whole wifi android file transfer as easy as just a few taps.
