google images always brings up at least one meme version!
my system: asus p7x79 + windows8 64bit + usb3 card reader
problem : bsods with usb card readers(not usb3 harddrives) + not able to actually upgrade to windows 8.1 due to some error on upgrading + sfc command reports amd64 corruptions…
Having troubles updating to 8.1? Usb 3 card readers etc giving you bsod( blue screens of death / ‘memory management’ crashes?) Firstly you might want to scan the system files with
within a’ command prompt’ windows shell (right click and run as administration privilegedmode)
Running command ‘ sfc /scannow ‘ may bring about some verifications which didn’t repair themselves.. In my case it was amd64 files; investigating the CBS.log file, located at C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log shows a few amd64 entries
when i saw my cbs.logs. the post i was reading made some sense…lets go fix this!
that couldn’t be fixed ,the way to fix them is by running this command
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restore health
Same thing as before with sfc command just run it inside the elevated command prompt and after a while when it’s finished restoring from the Web [the files it needs] it will be done. Run sfc /scannow to confirm the errors have vanished..
And then try the update to 8.1 from the app store.
This one command fixed the issue of not upgrading and also fixed a long standing usb 3 issue where my sd/cf cards in the card reader would crash the machine anytime it was inserted. Truly annoying.. Now it’s installed the drivers and usb3 for sd card readers (hard drives were fine before fix) and windows doesn’t crash. Nice.
I only attempted this now due to waiting for corsair to finish [ at least a beta] of their corsair link software monitors the various pumps/fans/. temps in my system, as its only just got some windows 8 lovin ,before that there was some hacks for the registry something which also kept me from upgrading(not that i could anyway!)
I’m not saying this is the sole reason to why the usb3 is not working for sd card readers..maybe the 8.1 update overwrote some asus drivers which could be the issue actually..but to make sure dont install those usb3 boost drivers… otherwise you may get the bsod when inserting those usb3-sd-card-readers !
(for me ,no asus boost crap on this pc for a while -I’m liking the non-bsods these days!)
Tested the usb3 card reader with some sd /cf cards and its working now for the first time in a year since i built the win 8 pc!. :) -piklz
modded meaning olpf(optical low-pass filter) filter layer (the stuff canon adds to fix moire amongst other things) of glass sandwiched in front of sensor has been removed to allow more light through,better sharpness (but moire will creep in but who cares! when it looks this good!)
