USB2 drive speed problems

I have a notebook that has a USB2 controller. In windows I can get a
14MB/s data transfer rate in Windows (write) to my USB drive. However
in BSD, I only get a 630KB/s transfer rate. Whats the best way to
ascertain *why* I'm getting this slow performance? I'm not sure which
diagnostic steps to take at this point. I know I had the USB2 modules
compiled into my kernel.
