ricoh sd card reader high CPU use

2013-05-29, 8:05 AM

Hello, ever since I installed windows 8, there a lot of times where I have 25% cpu use and with this increasing fan noise and decreasing battery life. Now I identified the problem as being the ricoh sd card reader, at least when I turn of the reader in device manager my cpu usage goes back to normal values. Is there a new driver that I should install or an alternative one?


does anyone else experience this problem?
