RICOH Media Card Reader Driver causes constant 13% cpu usage under 'NT Kernel & System' on Windows 8

RICOH Media Card Reader Driver version 2.22.18.01 has been causing the Windows kernel to constantly use about 13% on the CPU. I'm on Windows 8 x64. If the device is on battery, it forces the CPU to work at higher frequencies and eats up the battery so quickly.

 

I spotted the issue using Process Explorer. Now I'm giving the beta driver a chance and I'll report back after I use it for a bit. Does anyone have the same issue?

 

Finally, will the latest driver (October 2012) get an update anytime soon?
