Multimedia card reader does not respond copying

I have a computer that is just over 1 year old and the multimedia card reader does not seem to work. I know it once did, but now does not.

I put in any card and it reads the files just fine. When I copy or otherwise try to make another copy onto my hard drive, the LED goes out and nothing happens; it simply gets stuck, sometimes copying one or more folders, but no files.

I've tried everything I could think of. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I've discovered that if I sit and wait a long time, the light comes back on to transfer a small portion of the file, then goes back out. It keeps doing that until the file is finally copied, but takes an unusually long time for a very small sized file (0.99 mb.)

Transferring file from drives within the same computer always seems to take longer than it should. Does the computer work fine otherwise? Have you scanned for malware? Do you have other USB devices connected?
