    Question USB 3.0 and Windows XP Pro SP3 issue.

    Hello all,

    I could use some help here

    I have a problem with my Kingston DataTraveler 111 32gb 3.0 USB key. When I plug it to any of my 4 USB 3.0 ports. Windows XP doesn't recognize it.
    It does work fine in my USB 2.0 ports. I have a USB 3.0 external hard drive that works flawlessly connected to all my USB 3.0 ports.

    I spoke to Gigabyte tech support which was utterly useless so I was wondering if anybody has a more useful advice other than to buy an expansion card.

    Thanks in advance to all replies,
    -A

    Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver — Can I install USB 3.0 controller driver in Windows* XP or Windows* Vista?

    Can I install USB 3.0 controller driver in Windows* XP or Windows* Vista?

    The Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver is not supported in Windows* XP or Windows* Vista. For these operating systems, make sure your BIOS settings have the xHCI Mode set to Auto or Smart Auto. This step reconfigures the USB 3.0 ports to function as USB 2.0 ports using the native Windows* EHCI driver.

    Right now my BIOS is set to Smart Auto. I've tried Auto but I still can't get the key to work.

    p.s. this is the 3rd key from Kingston after 2 RMAs and it's getting a bit frustrating

    Try formatting the Kingston with This or This.

    Since you can read the external USB 3.0 hhd I would rule out a driver problem. I see more Kingston related issues than most other manufacturers, I've always had good results with Sandisk products.

    Thanks for the links, I'll give it a shot, A 3rd RMA was issued to me by Kingston for that same USB key and a different USB 3.0 key will be sent. Will see what happens then.

    I have never gotten a USB3.0 device to work in windows XP. Ever... I've tried on multiple systems...

    I've given up on it. I just used USB 2.0 ports

    Vin
    Main Rig
    OS = Win7 64 Bit
    CPU = i7-980X @ 3.8Ghz 166x23 cooled ba a Corsair H100
    Mem = 6GB 2000Mhz Kingston HyperX running at 2044Mhz @ 9-10-9-27-1T
    MB = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 with F6 Bios - Dead Board
    MB = EVGA X58 Classified3
    GPU = 2x EVGA 580GTX 1.5GB in SLI
    HD = 3x Intel 40GB X25-V in Raid 0 (580MB Read/140MB Write)
    Storage = 500 GB WD
    PSU = Corwair TX950W
    Case = Cooler Master HAF-X 945

    HTPC / Home Server
    OS = Win7 64Bit running XBMC HTPC Front end with Windows Server 2011 Virtual Machine with 8GB ram assigned for homer server with exchange
    CPU = AMD 1090T
    Mem = 16GB 1600Mhz Kingston RED Limited Edition running at 1600Mhz
    MB = Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5
    GPU- EVGA GT210
    HD = too many to count, but about 5TB of storage all together including backup
    PSU = Corsair TX750
    Case = Too embarrassed to mention.

    Benching MB's... Asus P5Q and Gigabyte 890FXA-UD7... too many CPU's and RAM sticks to list. :)
