I think, this 33MB/sec limit comes like this:
The regular copy process (I think u used "cp") reads with speed S from disk A
and writes with speed S to disk B. But: While it reads, it doesnt write AND
while it writes, it doesnt read.
So you might want to try this:
dd if=/diskA/fileA bs=128k | dd of=/diskB/fileB bs=128k
You could also try just to read or to write. Or to read&write with
The fish are biting.
