p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Troubleshooting slow card reader speeds


Recently purchased a Transcend 1000x card. Noticed that with my Lexar Pro USB3 reader that write speeds are great (75MB/s or so), but download/read speeds are terrible, to the tune of 5MB/s or so. My Sandisk cards are perfectly fine, and my Extreme Pro runs at 75MB/s for both read/write.

Any ideas on where to begin? With components from two manufacturers it's unlikely either will be overly helpful.

Never mind! Apparently card readers actually have firmware updates. Nice and zippy now. Hope this helps someone else.

My Transcend 128GB CF 1000x cards work with very good speed in my Lexar Pro USB 3 reader

Mine does too Once I updated the reader's firmware.

I have a Kingston USB 3.0 reader and I couldn't even get it to read either my Lexar 1000x or 800x. I actually had a new reader ordered when I realized it had a firmware update and that fixed things. Who knew?
