Windows 7: Syba USB 3.0 Flash Card-Reader Disconnecting every 3-minutes!

22 May 2013   #11

Windows 7

Hi bondisdead, thanks for responding. I will email the developer too, but as you said, I don't think they will consider this. You were using 2012 version of their software, I had 2013. My card reader is external, IOGEAR USB2.0 multi-card reader, model GUH286. I was trying to read my compact flash card with that card reader and it would not show up in the explorer. I never thought a software would create a problem like this. I am surprised how you found out. The card would show up for about 8 mins for me, if I unplug the USB cable of the reader from my laptop, disconnect the card reader's power supply, connect the USB cable back to laptop and then apply power to card reader.
I will try Hard Disk Sentinel as you mentioned for SMART. Thanks again.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

It was alot of debugging, and very satisfying (yet frustrating) when I isolated the problem! I am just as surprised that you were able to come across this thread via searching the web!
