I have tried both a Startech and a Freecom USB 3.0 ExpressCard in my laptop but with both products the result is the same - message as above.
I have checked the power to the cards, I have tried several different cables, I have checked and updated the drivers, and the Windows 7 64-bit Device Manager shows the USB 3.0 as working properly, under each of "USB 3.0 Host Controller" and "USB 3.0 Root Hub".
I have tried ths ExpressCards with a USB 3.0 WD "My Book Essential", a USB 3.0 Lexar CF card reader, and a USB 3.0 32GB flash disc. The result is the same with a these devices - they operate at USB 2.0 speeds and the message in the title bar appears.
Any further advice would be welcomed.
Many USB 3.0 ports require the USB drive to be connected and a software utility to be run in order to enable USB 3.0 speeds. Is this the case with your hardware?
Thanks for the reply, but I have no idea what software utility you might be referring to - please advise. There is certainly no mention of any such utility in the (scant) user manuals supplied by Startech or FreeCom with their ExpressCards.
