    Question 970DE3/U3S3 Windows 8.1 Drivers?

    Is there any intention to release windows 8 or windows 8.1 drivers for the 970DE3/U3S3? If not, can anyone confirm whether the USB 3.0 device is the ASMedia ASM1042 or ASM1042a?

    Tough question, who knows? The older AMD chipsets on this board (AMD 770 and SB710) may not have specific Windows 8 driver support from AMD. You may need to search for whether or not the SB710 can use the Windows 8 AHCI driver, storahci.

    The specs for this board state ASMedia ASM1042.

    Unfortunately, my current issue is specifically with the Windows driver for the USB 3.0 chip. This is all related to issues with Win 8.1 and HTC devices.

    Is the ASM1042 part of the SB710 chipset?

    No. Two separate chips. The SB710 is AMD, with the ASM1042 being from ASMedia.

    In looking around the web it appears 8.1 overwrites the ASMedia drivers while using Windows Update, is that right?

    Have you tried installing/using the ASM1042 driver v1.16.12.0? That appears the latest revision.

    The "readme.txt" from within the latest 1.16.12.0 download states:
    Code:

    Thanks Wardog! I didn't even try downloading those drivers because their website says "Windows 7," but sure enough after clicking the download and opening the zip the readme says "Windows 8" (as you quoted above)!

    My understanding is Windows will overwrite the driver at each update (which is about every other day unless I turn updates off), but it works for talking to my HTC devices now!

    Thanks!
