Windows 7: USB 2.0 Media Center devices not working in USB 3.0 slots

USB 2.0 Media Center devices not working in USB 3.0 slots

I have USB 3.0 slots in my Dell Laptop. My desktop has a couple of these, too, but also a number that are USB 2.0. The Hauppauge HD-DVR and Media Center remote which work fine when used with USB 2.0 slots don't work in USB 3.0 slots.

Is this a known problem? Are there any solutions?

Try this, turn off your computer. Install the device into the USB 3.0 port. Boot your computer and see if Windows 7 picks it up.
