When I connect any USB device to my laptop,it seems to take a long time for the device to be registered and shown in My Computer. I have no issues in Device Manger,and all drivers are up to date.
Any advice please
Whilst I wouldn't say it takes "a long time", I've certainly found that W7 is a lot slower than XP in registering USB devices - and also when I want to eject a USB device, after clicking on the icon in the SysTray there is always a noticeable lag that did not exist with XP. I've tried this on several W7 machines and all are the same.
Because usb devices are constantly plugged in and out each time this happens a new entry is made in the registry for the port an this slow things up after a while.
In device manager if you click on - view - show hidden devices, you will find a lot of devices under usb all greyed out. you can select and uninstall each one if you wish but it can be time consuming ;0(
