    Default Windows 7 PROBLEM with USB 3.0 PART THREE - Interim Report

    1. Windows 7 PROBLEM with USB 3.0 PART THREE - Interim Report Rev. 1.0

      PLATFORMS Tested:

      Dell Dimension 4550 3.06 Ghz P4 HT enabled
      Dell Dimension 4500 2.80 Ghz P4
      ADDONICS Host Controller 2-Port USB 3.0 PCI - AD2U3PCI
      WD My Book Essential 1130 2TB USB 3.0 / 2.0 external drive
      Transcend JF700 USB 3.0 16GB FlashDrive
      Transcend JF700 USB 3.0 32GB FlashDrive

       
      Operating Systems:

      Windows XP SP3 with NECEL-USB3-Host-Driver-10170-setup - works flawlessly

       
      Windows 7 Home Premium SP1

      with RENESAS-USB3-Host-Driver-21280-setup - or any (list below) - problematic

      Anything from 1 to 10 re-installations of USB 3.0 driver required for connection to take effect
      Once achieved, connection is solid, can backup etc BUT lost on restart - [Definitely NOT USB 2.0 performance, tested] May look like this: - snap a.
       
      (See Windows PROBLEM with USB 3.0 _Part_3a.rtf ) for Image)
       

      Windows 7 Desktop snap a.

      USB 3.0 Drives: My Book (J:) and JF700 (I:) could be present in USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 Mode, BUT prescence of :
      these DEVICES:

      Renesas Eletronics USB 3.0 Host Controller
      Renesas Eletronics USB 3.0 Root Hub
      USB Mass Storage Device (Driver Microsoft 21/06/2006 ver. 6.1.7601.17577)
      USB Mass Storage Device (Driver Microsoft 21/06/2006 ver. 6.1.7601.17577)

       
      Means all is welI (Root Hub won't Install if Host Controller has 'yellow mark')
      Next, will USB Mass Storage Device Install when Drive is plugged in USB 3.0 Port? - Not If
      (It's like Russan roulette):

       
      Unknown Device (Driver Microsoft 21/06/2006 ver. 6.1.7601.17586)

      turns up to the party ...Hadn't had one 'hit' with this particular Driver and
      Windows 7 has more.. With WIN XP and WIN 8 there's only one so you
      don't even have to write it down, when troubleshooting. If anyone has
      taken the chalenge of making USB 3.0 work with WIN 7, my suggestion is
      this:

       
      Resize Existing Partion (if there is capacity) - EASUS is well up to the task
      Create Partition NTFS etc
      Download Microsoft Windows 8 Cosumer Preview DVD/USB .iso
      Install on New Partition

      Then you can Backup/Restore with USB 3.0 connection, (If you have XP)
      can be done from there)

       
      The 'Glitch' is still there in WIN 8 (if you have one that is) on average,
      currently experiencing connection with 0-3 loops of the Routine **
      on the PLATFORM Above - WIN 7 will give you the runaround...

      ** See Part One of this series on your favourite Forum.

      [In the course of addressing this USB 3.0 issue, been 'banned for life'
      by no less than 2 Forums, how am i doin'??? Maybe it's true, IT people
      have had a GSOH bypass]

       
      Windows 8 teritory:
      Here is snap b.:

      Windows 8 Desktop
       
      Device Manager (left) and Computer on Desktop (No Installation Announcement
      on Windows 8 Consumer Preview

      SUMMARY:

       
      WIN 8 with it's Native (built in) USB 3.0 Host controller is a WINner
      Uninstall it, it comes back with a 'Scan for hardware Changes' or ReBoot

      It IS USB 3.0 Ready, if it works with a slight 'Glitch' on 'ancient'
      PLATFORM (XP Generation) it should work for most)

       
      WIN 7 and USB 3.0, well , the quest continues...

      (Only the Windows 7 team know what happened, maybe they were
      too slow to commit on the USB 3.0 project, Theyve made up for it now)

       
      WIN XP - wonderful Operating System - will continue to use ALL three

       
      Over & Out
