G74 Annoying Issues. USB 3.0, SD Card Reader, and Hardware noise.

Level 7
I just bought a 1.0 TB Seagate portable hard drive that can run USB 3.0 and 2.0. I always plug it in through the USB 3.0 slot and it always tells me that its only running 2.0 and it can run faster with 3.0. I just ignored it and tested to transfer huge files. Sucks.. because its copying at USB 2.0 speed... Found some drivers here on the sticky and installed them and it still dint make any difference.. anyone have an answer to this?

Secondly, I wanted to copy pictures from my SD card but after i put the card in, it wont detect it. I tried several other cards and none of them get detected. Its like the slot is just for show....

Lastly, I noticed when I space out when im composing emails etc., some type of loud ticking noise is coming from the laptop. I think it might be the hard drive.

Help please..

Try muting your mics

Tried muting the microphone, tried disabling it (and now I can't find it anymore, heh), tried plugging in an external microphone (+/- mute) but that noise still occurs.

Sorry for continuing to hijack this thread, but ... any more ideas? I've switched off most windows sounds which avoids the problem part of the time, but it's still annoying.

Halo,

Only checked my thread now. The ticking noise has nothing to do with the audio system. Its definitely coming from the hardware inside. I'm not to worried about this issue since I haven't gotten any device issues except the USB 3.0 and SD card reader.

My real concern are the USB 3.0 and SD card reader. Does anyone have an answer to this?

Thank you all.

3.3.35 posted

Unfortunately USB 3.0 is still fairly new and there will be growing pains between device drivers and hardware firmware.

Yeah, I just installed the 3.3.35 version and it still wont detect it. Also saw some other threads on microsoft forum that this is a common issue.. epic fail...

Anyway, this still doesnt answer why my SD card reader wont work...
