Windows 10: Slow file transfer from camera (Contour GPS)

    Slow file transfer from camera (Contour GPS)

    Since updating to Windows 10 I've been having intermittent problems with accessing and transferring files from my Contour GPS camera. When I plug the camera in Windows Explorer will not automatically open (which I have set it to do). Navigating to it manually I find it often takes minutes at a time to navigate through it's directories.

    When copying files off it, the transfer will run at 355kb/s, which is ridiculous to say the least. Prior to upgrading it would behave "normally", that is to say navigating was fine, and transfers were quick. I should also mention that this does not always happen, but usually does. Until today I could just restart Windows and then it would behave like normal.

    Unfortunately, today I have already reset my computer half a dozen times and it is still behaving in this unacceptably slow manner. I tried updating the drivers for it, but Windows claims they are up to date. I'm at my wits end with this issue, and it is driving me insane not being able to view / transfer files properly. I have to leave my PC on overnight just to transfer a single video from it.

    Let me know if there's any additional information I can provide to help get this issue resolved.
