Windows 7: Mounting a USB stick

16 Sep 2010   #1

Mounting a USB stick

For some reason I have noticed that mounting a usb stick is taking a really long time. I have Security Essentials installed and thought that might be the problem, but after it was disabled it still takes a long time to mount.

so I tried it on another 64bit version of 7 and it loaded fast. I know it is not the stick. I then checked setting and it acts as though it is running at 2.0.

Is there a way I can fully remove this drive from the system so it will be like the first time it has ever seen it the next time I plug it in? Any suggestions?

Try plugging in the USB in safe mode. If the recognition is faster use msconfig to isolate the problem. (Please post if you need help in doing that).

To remove the drive from your pc try the following software:-
