    Arrow Windows 7 PROBLEM with USB 3.0 PART TWO - Continuing Quest

    Windows 7 PROBLEM with USB 3.0 PART TWO - Continuing Quest
    Consider: USB Mass Storage Device Drivers used in WIN XP, 7, 8
    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 Controller
    WD My Book Essential 1130 2TB USB 3.0/2.0 external drive
    Transcend JF700 USB 3.0 16GB flashdrive
    Operating Systems:
    Windows XP SP3 with NECEL-USB3-Host-Driver-10170-setup - works flawlessly
    01/07/2001 5.1.2600.0 (USB 2.0 / 3.0 - only one encountered)

    Windows 7 Home Premium SP1
    RENESAS-USB3-Host-Driver-21281-setup - problematic
    21/06/2006 6.1.7600 16385
    21/06/2006 6.1.7601 17577 (USB 2.0 / 3.0 - best chance for connection)
    21/06/2006 6.1.7601 17586
    Compared to XP and WIN 8, this seems to be a little confused...
    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]
    Windows 8 Consumer Preview
    with Renesas USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 0096 (Microsoft)
    21/06/2006 6.2.8250.0 (USB 2.0 / 3.0 - only one encountered)
    This driver is Native to WIN 8, when uninstalled , RE-installed automatically with 'Scan for Hardware Changes' or Restart
    Anything from 0 to 6 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]
     
    OBJECT: Cont.
    Demonstrate that problem lies with WIN 7 / WIN 8 - Once connected, that shoud let your Host Controller and USB 3.0 drivers AND Chipset off the hook
    USB 3.00 Host Controller

    Usb not working problem some time also occurred due to the hardware but most of the case it a issue of bios setting as well operating system follow those step and make your usb enable

    Step 1
    In some instances, in order to prevent unauthorized copying of data to USB-based storage devices, the USB port is disabled intentionally. To enable the USB port, click on the 'Start' button and right click on the 'My Computer' option.
    Step 2
    Choose the 'Manage' option from the context menu to open the Computer Management window. Click on the 'System Tools' category on the left panel. This will display all connected devices of the computer system at the right panel.
    Step 3
    Click on the '+' sign beside the Universal Serial Bus controllers option to expand it. Right click on the USB Root hub and select 'Enable'.
    Step 4
    Click on the 'File' menu and select 'Exit' to close the Computer Management window. Reboot the computer system to make sure the changes take effect.
    Step 5
    An alternative method for the Microsoft Windows environment is to click on the 'Start' button and select the 'Control Panel' option.
    Step 6
    Click on the 'Performance and Maintenance' category and select the 'System' option. This will open the System Properties window.
    Step 7
    Choose the 'Hardware' tab and click the 'Device Manage' button. In the Device Manager window, expand the option for the Universal Serial Bus category.
    Step 8
    Select the USB Root hub entry and click on the 'Enable' icon on the toolbar at the upper part of the Device Manager window. Click on the 'File' menu and select 'Exit'.
    Step 9
    To enable the USB port from the Windows Registry, click on the 'Start' button and select the 'Run' option.
    Step 10
    Type regedit in the Open box and click on the 'OK' button to bring up the Registry Editor window.
    Step 11
    Expand the SYSTEM category under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Click on the '+' beside CurrentControlSet and choose Services.
    Step 12
    Click the UsbStor option. This should display a list of registry keys in the right pane window. Double click on the 'Start' key and replace its value with 3. Make sure that Hexadecimal is selected.
    Step 13
    Click on the 'OK' button. Exit the Registry Editor to complete the process of enabling the USB port.
    Step 14
    A more direct method is to reboot the computer system and enter the BIOS setting configuration window. Refer to the motherboard’s documentation to identify how to access the BIOS settings and enable the USB port.
