You have not mentioned what card reader you are using.  I use the Lexar card reader which handles both CF and SD.  I do remember that I needed to update the firmware for the Lexar Professional 1000x UDMA 7.  I have used this card since March 2012 with no problems.  Do not underestimate the importance of a quality card reader with the proper firmware.

I can't remember the brand of card reader I have, but it is a new internal reader (bought this year) that reads everything from MicroSD to Compactflash cards. I have used my wife's SDHC Sandisk Extreme Pro 32gb (UDMA7) cards in it as well as Sandisk Extreme Pro Compactflash (90MB) 32gb cards. The reader is USB 3.0 and so is my motherboard. (ASUS EVO-M4a88T) which is USB 3.0 + I am running 16GB of DDR3 ram and Windows 7 64-bit with an AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition which is overclocked to almost 4GHz. My system is about as new as it comes. If I was running a much older system I would certainly look into the hardware.

I custom build PC's so I am pretty aware of firmware updates as well as the importants of updated drivers.

Canon 5D2, 7Dv2.03, 50D, 40D, T1i, XTi...XT (& lenses, flahses), various powershots... You get the idea... I have a problem. :)

Wife shoots Nikon, D7000, D7100, (lenses and flashes)... we constantly tease each other that our cameras are better than each others!
