Slow floppy operation

I've not used floppy in my notebook for a while, then when I did, I 
found that it worked veeeeery slowly :-)
Here is the stats:

 > dd if=boot.flp of=/dev/fd0
2880+0 records in
2880+0 records out
1474560 bytes transferred in 607.571848 secs (2427 bytes/sec)

Notebook is a Sharp Mebius PC-MJ730P, system is 6.0-RELEASE, compiled 
from sources. I don't know where to dig.
Any suggestions are welcome.
