Yoga 13 hangs up with Sdxc 64GB Sandisk

2012-12-08, 0:54 AM

Has anyone imstalled a 64GB SDXC card and had any issies with it on the Yoga 13? I installed the card, formatted it to be safe and started using it. All seemed fine until I placed data on it. The card would cause the Yoga13 to do some or all of the following;


Bog Down

Lock up

Stop seeing the SD card, it would disappear from the installed media list

Continuously need to RESCAN the SD card (very slowly - 90 seconds or more), and sometimes lock up in the process

Keep the Yoga from shutting down

 

Now, I have NO issues with a 64GD USB drive, super fast loading and never causes any issues.

 

If I remove the SD card, the problems go away. So I know the response is going to be YOU HAVE A BAD SD CARD, which is FINE, as long as I do not buy another $60-$100 card and have the sample problem, only to find out it is a driver issue that needs to be resolved on the Yoga 13.

 

If anyone has a SD card they are happy with and have none of the issues, could you let me know the Make/Model.

 

Also, if anyone has had the same problem and have tried multiple cards, also let me (us) know so that we can try and get the manufacturer to at least tell us a fix or update is on the way! Thanks in advance......D

I have a 128GB Patriot SDXC Class 10 and have had no problems with it.  It stays in the computer. 

 

How did you format it the SD card? I used exFAT.

Its not so much the brand name as where you bought it. For instance cheap cards from mystery ebay sellers often send counterfeit cards that are electronically rigged to proclaim they have double their real storage. So they act fine until you actually try to read or write to nonexistant address space. This is so very common that you can find software on the web that can verify this card problem. And then next time buy from more accountable source.

I also leave my SD card in my Yoga 13 and have not had any problems with it.  I bought it from Amazon: SanDisk Extreme 64 GB SDXC Class 10 UHS-1.  It's formatted as exFAT.

Thanks for the feedback. I got the card at Best Buy, and it seems from what you all state the Yoga is not the issue but rather my card. It is exFAT formatted, so that is also not the issue. I will try another card and see what happens!

 

Thanks in advance......!

I have a Sandisk ultra 16gb sd card that I bought at one of the big box stores that hangs my yoga as well.  It has been formated and still does the same thing.  I don't have the hanging problem with a different sd card.

I have exactly the same problems with my Sdxc 64GB Sandisk, the same card works fine on an Android tablet. Sometimes it's also possible to use it in my YOGA but most of the time I'm waiting 2-3 minutes for the scan of the SD card. When I start videos from the card or just a copy process to my SSD I loose the connection also after a few minutes. Does anyone here have experience with other SD-card-manufactures  ?

 

I'm not shure if this is a hardware problem, but I also loose connections from an external USB-3.0-drive after about 30 seconds of transferring data....
