Was it many small files or some big ones?
Usb flash drives are *very* slow with small files, way under 1/10 of their rated write speed.
This is caused by the flash mechanics of big erase blocks.
Your speed was about 0.9mb / s.
Then I recall there was an issue with usb 2.0 by default preventing someone's usb boot, so only 1.1 is loaded by default. You need to "sudo modprobe ehci_hcd" to get usb 2.0 speeds.
