Whenever I insert my Extreme USB 3.0 into a port, my wireless connection disappears. When I remove the stick, wifi is re-established within a few seconds. Anyone know why or, even better, can anyone tell me how to stop it happening?
Anyone know why
My guess would be too many USB devices overloading the power supply. Am I close?
Thanks for the response - but I don’t think that’s the issue. I only have a mouse dongle in one of the USB 2 ports, nothing else.
i have the same problem, with Extreme 3.0 32GB. My notebook is Acer Aspire S3-391 (like Macbook Air 13"), there is only two USB 3.0 ports and built in Wifi. I am using Microsoft wireless mouse in first USB port. After inserting Extreme into second USB is wifi disconnected and wifi mouse is disconnected too. But USB drive is working fine.
I tried this problem with other USB flashes and with USB external HDD drives. With ordinary USB flash is it ok, but with USB 3.0 or with external HDD it will disable wifi too.
So my conclusion is propably problem with power in notebook, maybe is power in USB 3.0 mode bigger, and there is some conjuction in circuit between internal wifi and USB ports.
On other bigger notebooks (lenovo, Macbook Pro 15, MSI GS70 17") is all ok, no problems.
I have a issue quite similar except that when I plug my sandisk extrem 32 go get enable my bluetooth on my lenovo T520…
no solution or workaround found
Could it be possible that the San Disk Secure access software is the culprit ?
Thanks for the idea, but I am not running the Secure Access software.
