Usb hangs windows 7 Tags: Drivers Windows 7 USB Gigabyte Last response: September 29, 2012 6:46 PM in Windows 7 Share mgshn September 29, 2012 5:28:49 PM Hello, I just built a system with a gigabyte 970A-D3 MB running w7 ultimate. It frequently hangs while transferring files from a USB connected media reader. Happens with multiple readers, both USB 2 and 3. I've installed the latest bios and drivers. I've tried the hotfix referenced at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976972 but get a message that it doesn't apply. I've tried the "fix" described at http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/165554-usb-driver-... (several times) and it doesn't help. Any ideas short of buying a Mac? Thanks!
