    laptop slow in recognizing usb/cards/xpress card slot
    « on: January 01, 2014, 03:16:39 PM »
    Lately, My laptop is very slow in recognizing my usb stick, or my Hard drive (usb 3.0) or my sxs cards through my express card slot. It 's also slow in recognizing my sd-cards through my card reader. I have a very fast laptop. A lenovo W530.

    I just started a while ago, and I can't get it to recognize faster . Everything else works just fine and fast.... but it takes up to 4 minutes to recognize these things.I run windows 7 professional

    Can somebody help?

    Tx

      Yes there  is yellow at the usb mass storage device. It says: code 10.  After a while, this dissapears and it says it works correctly.
      And after I want to eject it, it says code 47. And this dissappears after a while

      Code 10 is usually a hardware error...either the external drive or the card reader is headed South...
      Test 1 at a time to determine which one...

        It's really strange...  The usb hard drive, or the card reader are working just fine. On other computers they work completely fine.
        And also on this computer, they work absolutely fine. It seems like there is somehting that just stalls my laptop to recognize these items. After 3 minutes, they are recognized and they work absolutely fine. And when I want to eject them, it takes , again a long time before they get ejected.
