Default [Q] external SD card causing sluggish boot

I'm using Note3 with the latest 4.4.2 (rooted)

It seems like my external SD card is causing my phone to be sluggish during boot/reboot.
- Phone boots to homescreen fine
- Phone cannot be put to sleep with power button
- External SD card not detected during this time

after awhile, the phone vibrates
- External SD card now detected
- Phone can now be put to sleep.

any suggestions?

Scan card with a antivirus, move files from card to a pc, format SD card, try with empty card, then add files not all at once to see what's causing the problem, then come back and ask ?

thanks for the reply.
I reformatted my extSD and removed all the files (backup of my internalSD) and it seems to be working fine now.
- decent detection speeds...

it seems like the Note3 has issues detecting the SDcard once it's up to a certain size?

I'd disagree. I have 1.2 gigs free of 64, and it wasn't formatted for at least 1.5 years, and I moved a gazillion of files but it flies on the Note.
Many things to consider when a sd card starts to f... around.

Edit : just checked, only 0.8 gigs

Yeah, could be. You'll see how it behaves. From my experience, these kind of things are good to be bought original. I'm not sayin yours if fake, but you know what I mean...
