    Default UB 3.0 not working Asrock Extreme4-M

    I am having trouble getting my Extreme4-M motherboard to work with either the front or rear USB 3.0 connections. I am using a SilverStone TS07B external case with Seagate 1 TB hard drives to perform back ups. I can get the external hard drives to work with the USB 2.0 connections but not the 3.0(external enclosure has USB 3.0 compatibility). When I try to connect using USB 3.0 the drive tries over and over to mount with the drive appearing onscreen and then disappearing and reappearing in a new window. I am using Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit. here is the output of lsusb:

    desktop:~$ lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 051d:0002 American Power Conversion Uninterruptible Power Supply
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0424:2514 Standard Microsystems Corp. USB 2.0 Hub
    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 046d:c01b Logitech, Inc. MX310 Optical Mouse
    Bus 002 Device 005: ID 04f9:01f5 Brother Industries, Ltd



    Am I correct to say that there is an issue with the Asmedia USB controllers and Linux or does the problem lie elsewhere. I replaced the motherboard with an RMA once and had the same issue.

    A basic suggestion would be to disable legacy usb3 ib uef and see if that helps,but there are more posts concerned with usb 3. and etron ,if not on this page then the previous one.

    I see you have a Linux foundation 3.0 root hub, which means Linux see your USB 3 controller.
    I do not see in this list however anything connected to it.
    Looks to me like you have a USB hub with mostly everything except the UPS connected to it.

    make sure you are using the XHCI_HCD driver for the USB3 devices.
    You can find out by running this command:
    lspci -k

    A sample snip of output would look like this:
    Code:
    05:00.0 USB controller: Etron Technology, Inc. EJ188/EJ198 USB 3.0 Host Controller
            Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation Device 7052
            Kernel driver in use: xhci_hcd

    Code:
    00:14.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation Panther Point USB xHCI Host Controller (rev 04)
        Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation Device 1e31
        Kernel driver in use: xhci_hcd
    appears to be a USB3 device, Intel and not ASmedia as you previously thought. and I note that you appear to only have one USB3 controller.

    lsusb -v -s 4:
    will give you a lot more detail about the controller and it's capabilities.
    value iSerial will probably = 0000:00:14.0
    which is the PCI device it is on (00:14.0 as above)

    tail -n 0 -f /var/log/messages
    before you connect the device will output the system logs, you will be able to see here for any errors.
    ctrl-c gets you out again.

    while doing the "tail follow" you could probably connect to usb2 first to see what a normal connection looks like. and then try USB3 to see what errors or differences appear.

    I guess I should elaborate.

    lsusb -v -s 4:
    because the "root" bus is 4 as you shown above from your lsusb. -v is verbose

    If you wanted to show verbose information of device 2 on usb bus 4, it would be lsusb -v -s 4:2

    tail (command to display last 10 lines of file)
    -n 0 (change default 10 lines to zero lines)
    -f (follow. don't close file and exit, display any new lines added to file)

    @kick

    Disabling USB 3 Legacy mode may have worked. I tried a backup with the USB connection and had no issues with disconnects (or dismounts)as I had previously. Is it correct to say that the USB 3 is in fact still performing as USB 3 (ie disabling Legacy mode did not disable USB 3 completely and make it USB 2)? I am fairly new to building computers (this is my second build) so please excuse me if the answer to my question is obvious

    @synack
    Sorry I am not very clever with computers and I am afraid I am confused with the instructions. Here is the output of lsusb -v -s 4:
