Could be any number of reasons. I know when I had bad blocks the copy
process was painful. Also, if you are coping from within XP then the
time is usually wrong. Has been for me on more than one occasion. If
you are coping from a Ubuntu then the transfer rate should be on the
progress window if it's low then odds are that the system is negotiating
some bottle neck.
