I've installed a SanDisk Extreme Pro 1TB micro SD Card, formatted NTFS. When downloading in Steam I'm getting inconsistent speeds ranging from 0MB/s - 7MB/s.
When I run a read/write test on the card it shows sequential right speeds of 70-80MB/s and random write speeds of 57MB/s.
Internet speed test results in 90MB/s.
I've downloaded the latest card reader driver from Asus which didn't help at all.
Also worth noting that when I download a game to the internal SSD I get speeds of 50-60MB/s.
Additionally, I have a slower SanDisk SD Card (Ultra) in my Steam Deck and get speeds of around 30MB/s when downloading on there.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Hi @JonnyOptimus ,
I would like to confirm some information with you to clarify the issue you are facing.
May I ask if you could provide me with the relevant specifications of your memory card? Could you please take a photo or let us know the details?
Would you be able to test the transfer speed by simply moving a file from the host device to the SD card? Thank you.
Jonny I think i found a solution to this issue. I went to Steam Settings and went to the STORAGE section. In STORAGE Select the SD driver and you will see the 3 DOTS for option on the drive. I selected the option to Repair the folder. Once done select the 3 DOTS again and unmount the SD Card. Re-mount the SD Card again by selecting the Plus( + ) button to re-add. I fixed it for me. Pass it along Sir!
