Well I actually manged to get the sdcard workning again in windows, but its not stable. Windows managed to start the driver properly once or twice last night but couldn't find a filesystem on the card and kept asking me to format it. What I did was put the card into a usb adapter to check whether it was still working, which it was, I then put the card back into the slot and hey presto windows saw it. I rebooted and windows again couldn't start the driver (error code 10). |
Today I thought I'd give one more go to get it working, nothing I tried worked. I then thought what I would do is boot into safe mode remove all the drivers and try and install some different ones. Whilst attempting to reboot to safe mode I had to find a keyboard to hit the right key and it seems it timed out and reset back to windows but, the tablet took a long time to reboot and when the Chuwi logo came up there was a circle of dots rotating next to it. When it finally rebooted windows saw the sdcard fine and it work correctly. On the next reboot the sdcard again wouldn't work so I went to the firmware and I thought it might have something to do with the fastboot options but when I looked they were disabled so I enabled and rebooted. Hey presto the sdcard was working, just to make sure every thing was fine I rebooted again and this time the tablet wouldn't boot at all the ChuWi logo would come up, go away and come back again over and over. I thought I'd bricked it some how. I turned the table off by holding the power button, plugged a keyboard in powerd it back on and went back into the firmware to turn fastboot off again. Tablet booted, Phew, took a little while again that circle of rotating dots was there and when the tablet went to windows it also had a circle timer thing and wouldn't you know it the sdcard worked. So once more I rebooted and this time started android (CM) and then booted back to windows and of course the sdcard wasn't working anymore.
I can't replicate any of this I've tried everything that made it work for a while and now it just won't work again.
I don't know where this leaves me, whether its drivers or firmware or perhaps both, I know one thing its most definetly a windows 10 problem. Nothing new learnt there.
One thing I have learnt that this is fixable, I just haven't found out how......
May try going back to a previous build as I found a post that hinted it may be a problem with a windows update, I've tried uninstalling the but after waiting a couple of hours windows reboots and the bloody update is still there.
If I find anything I will post it.
