Transfer rate of a 1.44 megabyte floppy disk is about half a megabyte a second, more less depending on type and model, or in layman's terms, about the speed of molasses in December, a very very cold December, with a lot of snow and ice outside, really cold.

Modern mechanical drives that hold 15,000+ megabytes of data can attain 150 about megabytes per second, and the newest Solid State Drives (SSD) can attain 500+ megabytes a second.
