but, over the past few weeks i have had 3 computers, two of which i returned thinking they had defects, but this one does it too
when i first insert the sd card, it reads the drive as active, in this case E drive but NOT the sd card inserted into it
so what i have to do is right click it, click EJECT, i get a pop up saying it is in use and option to cancel, or continue, i click CONTINUE, take the card back out, reinsert it, and it is fine
every time after that i put it back in it is fine
this happens only after the FIRST time i insert it, not ever after
this has NEVER happened on any w7 32 bit pc, only the 64 bit versions
a dell technician even came out and installed a new media reader just to be sure, no difference
this just a w7 64 bit version glitch, or am i missing something?
and yes, i ALWAYS click eject before i remove any media
HERE'S THE THING: IT WORKS FINE IN SAFE MODE, so i disabled all of my security programs, still didn't work right in normal mode
so it HAS to be a Microsoft / windows background program
any advice on which of the windows 7 64 ultimate background programs COULD interfere with reading an sd card??
ALSO, this problem has happened on 3 other computers, i thought were defective
and it works in safe mode
this is so frustrating
