Memory card reader forcing Scandisk on reboot
Found a issue with Windows 7 pertaining to memory card reader use. Can duplicate it on both a Dell XPS 410 with 7 Home Premium and an Asus Eee with Starter. Wondering if anyone else is noticing this.
When you use the memory card reader, say to import photos into Windows Live Photo, you sometimes get a read error. OK. That's not a biggie. But what seems to happen is that Windows marks the "dirty bit" on the boot drive (C. That means when you reboot, Windows goes through its whole Scandisk routine on the drive.
First encountered the issue on a Dell XPS 410. Figured it was a faulty memory card reader, so I got a new one. Still got the issue. Then I figured it was a faulty memory card -- got a new memory card -- still get the issue. I figured it was just an issue with the Dell.
But then, I got an Asus Eee, preinstalled with 7 Starter (and with the latest BIOS update). Again, was importing photos to Windows Live Photo Gallery with an entirely different memory card and using the built-in memory card reader. Didn't notice a read error. Again, the drive was reported by Windows Backup as having an error. And on reboot, Scandisk ran.
It's interesting that the same error is occuring on two competely different systems. Wondering if anyone else has seen an issue like this?
