I'm not exactly sure what 'fixed' the problem but noticed a few things:

1) I got a new CF reader (Transcend) and a new Sandisk 16GB CF.
2) I noticed that I did not have JIT checked on WinUAE and I was not using a faster processor (can't imagine that would be it).
3) When I copied WHDL archives to my CF before it took hours and was extremely slow. Once I used the new card, reader, JIT and 68040 it went much quicker.

Would JIT have any difference for how fast it would copy or may have been my actual problem?

Thank you all for the help!!!
Its took hours because I bet you still had default buffers?

I know some will moan at this but it works for copying large amounts of data quicker. Do "addbuffers yourdrive amountofbuffers" - Your drive = DH0: etc etc and Amount of buffers = any amount you want up to 2000 (2000 would = 2MB of system RAM).
I always set mine to 2000 on each partition, obviously the more partitions you have the less buffers you should use or you will suck up all your system RAM:
