Just a quick question, Is the 3.0 on the jw backwards compatible?

let's hope it is are it's a dead port on this machine for me..

The 3.0 port is backward compatible, and is a totally separate entity from the onboard USB 2.0 ports. It uses it's own drivers as well.

Nah. Noone ever said you need to just use the 3.0 port. If you have a device that doesn't like the port w/ whatever current driver you are using, use one of the standard USB 2.0 ports.

Only issues I've heard of is sometimes if a device is in the 3.0 port, it may lockout the 2.0 ports, but I believe that was addressed in the 3.0 updated drivers. Needless to say if you have such an issue, don't use the 3.0 port ;) If you have any 2.0 issues, just update your Intel INF installation.
