I have this problem on Ubuntu 16.04. Not only the system becomes very
slow, but also the USB transfer speed is horrible. From USB3 port into
USB2 drive it goes down to 2-3 MB/s

Ubuntu slows down and hangs while copying file from/to USB
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
While copying many and large files to and from a USB drive, the system
becomes incredibly slow and sometimes hangs. I watched the system
monitor while it was running slowly but cpu was not above 50% at any
time, the same for memory.
I'm using the "WD my passport" HD with a USB3 port of my "ASUS K55VD"
