T530 - Insanely Slow SD card transfer rate

I'm curious if anyone knows why I might be experiencing insanely slow transfer rates from a particular 8GB Transcend SDHC 6 card?  If I click on details while it is reading from the card, it will say 'Calculating...' forever.  It will take like 5 minutes to transfer 3 - 1MB files.  There are less than 200 pictures/videos on the card.  The weird thing is that accessing the same card from my old laptop and my wife's laptop works perfectly fine. 

 

And if I take my 16GB Micro SDHC card from my cell phone and put it into an SD card adapter and put that into the SD slot on my T530, no issues, it transfers files at normal speeds?!  So it doesn't seem like the reader is bad, it just doesn't like that one card. 

 

Any ideas?

What I would call 'normal'.  As a very rough test, I transferred about 30 - 1-2MB pictures at once on the two older laptops in less than 30 seconds.

Re: T530 - Insanely Slow SD card transfer rate

Hi there dudeman,

 

Are all the card reader drivers up to date?

 

One of the drivers for the T530 listed here: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?DocID=HT073832 was recent, from August, under Camera and Card Reader. This may not solve your issue but I just wanted to suggest installing the latest drivers if you haven't already.

Thanks for the suggestion, but unfortunately that didn't help.  After installing the driver, here is the detail screen showing it will take 18mins for 13MB at 22KB/second.
