usb 3.0 not reconised as 3.0
« on: June 25, 2011, 04:44:55 pm »
Hello,

I just bought a msi 3.0 usb controller pci-e card. When connecting the mede8er 500x2 to it, I get the message"This device can run faster if connected to a 3.0 hub"

This means its not being reconised as a 3.0 usb port. Any suggestions on what to try? I have the newest drivers installed and tried another 3.0 cable. I use windows 7. A friend of mine has the same card and uses vista. Same problem there.

You've got it the wrong way  round. The X2 is being detected as USB 3.0, and your PC is telling you that "the device (x2) can run faster if connected to a USB 3.0 hub" on your PC. So your PC is not detecting your card as USB 3.0, but something lower.

I have the same controller and everything is working fine under windows xp. did you download the latest drivers from MSI?

http://download1.msi.com/files/downloads/dvr_exe/nec_usb3_vx7_mb.zip drivers for vista/XP/win7.

Iam getting transfer speeds of around 35 MB/s. (measured with teracopy under XP) wich are pretty neat.
(compared to external usb 3.0 enclosures like the 2TB Verbatim usb 3.0 housing)

:O I get 60mb/s and thats nowhere near 3.0 speed (if your hd is up to it offcourse). I dont understand why I get the balloon warning. I tried the newest drivers.

Cache speeds, and platter speeds, are two different things. Your not going to get 6 gb/s off the platters of a Sata 3.0 drive.
