[Bug] How to transfer videos?

How to transfer videos?
I've got an A-210, and I'm happy with it, with one big exception. I find it very difficult to get movies on to the box. Running a network cable to it is out of the question. I have a USB Wifi adapter plugged in, with a great signal, but transfers over the network take at least 2 hours a movie, and transfers often fail. I could unplug everything, bring it into the room where the computer is, and transfer by USB, but that's obviously extremely inconvenient. I thought I could simply put files on a USB drive, and plug it into the front of the device to transfer them to the internal hard drive, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that (My old Patriot Box Office does this well). To make a long story short, I don't want to play files off a USB drive, I want them all in one place. So, how does everyone transfer files? Am I the only person with this problem?

BTW, I've found rebooting the A-210 often doubles the transfer rate (1 hour instead of 2 or 3), but the speed increase doesn't last long.

RE: How to transfer videos?
Plug the usb drive in to the A-210, use the ui to browse to the usb drive then press "filemode" on the remote and select "copy" then browse to the A-210 internal drive, press "filemode" again and select "copy here" (the words may be slightly different).
