Timeouts on 256GB SDXC Cards


Hello World,

I just recently bought myself 3 brand new 256 SDXC Cards from Transcend for my Thinkpad X22t laptop.
Smaller cards from Transcend (128GB) work just fine in the unit's internal card readers, but those new cards produce "CMD 25" timeout errors in the log all the time.
I am currently on kernel 3.4.33-2.24-desktop and I have tried the same cards under Windows XP on the same laptop.
Under Windows they work slow as heck in the system, but they work.

Under Linux they are only operable if accessed via an USB card reader.
Then they work w/o problems.
I've found a few hints on Google that this kind of timeout error is a known from the Linux kernel for certain cards.

But nothing detailed enough to find a solution for this.
Anybody got any useful suggestions?

It sounds like USB read/write speeds are faster than the internal sd card reader because you say

Hard to say what is going on because you left some important info out like what distro you are using. Whether you are using just a Window Manager or a Desktop enviorment, (Icewm,Fluxbox,Openbox,XFCE,KDE,Gnome 3?). How much cpu and ram is available also on that computer.

This desktop even has a floppy drive. So having a 256GB sd flash card is a pretty nifty
toy. I be jealous.

It's probably a driver issue if the internal one times out while the USB one doesn't.
