Slow Restore via USB

I have two external firewire/USB drives that I use for my regular SuperDuper backups (using firewire): both are partitioned and I use one 500GB partition on each to backup my iMAC internal 500GB drive.

Since my iMac won't boot from these drives when connected via firewire, I have to use USB when I want to boot from the backup.

I am now doing a restore:
I've booted from one of these backup drive partitions, connected using USB,
and I am using smart update to "backup" (restore) to my internal iMac hard drive (which I first erased).

However as I speak it has been 6.5 hours and only 6700 files out of 708k files (25GB out of 263GB) have been copied, for an effective copy rate of 0.98MB/s.

At this rate it will be several days to complete the restore!!
What could the issue be?
PS: I am using a 2008 24" iMAC (4GB, 3.06GHz) w/ 10.6.3
No other USB drive is connected at this point.
