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?

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