    So I've been noticing how terribly slow file transfers are using the Blackberry link drivers and software. This software maps 2 removable drives for you to transfer files.. but I've found transferring files to the sd card is unbearably slow (1-2mb/s) which is okay for smaller files but once you get to music and video is its terrible.

    I tried turning on mass storage mode, (which makes the sd card show up as a removal drive) from the settings and the transfer rates skyrocketed! I did a test and copying a movie from my sd card onto my computer went from 2mbs not using mass storage mode to 15mbs with it on! Moving music onto my sd card went from 1mbs to 6mbs!

    Just wanted to share if anyone else has an issue with the standard BlackBerry Link. I highly recommend mass storage mode for large file transfers even with BlackBerry Link installed.

    ive found both ways slow! even with mass storage mode on my transfer speed is still 1-2mb! but if i put my sd card into my laptop and then transfer the files it bumps up to 5-10mb! should mass storage mode work the same as me puttin the actual sd card into the laptop!??

    I didn't even know the Z10 could do a mass storage mode!
