Windows 7: USB 3.0 not recognising anything

USB 3.0 not recognising anything

I've just finished building a PC, and the mobo's CD installed some of Intel's USB 3.0 drivers. They seem to be up to date, as I have tried updating them via Gigabyte and Intel's website. However, whilst they provide power, they will not recognise any drives. My Device manager is shown below



Is there any way I could just use generic/Microsoft's USB 3.0 drivers?

Why is there so many listings? I have 4 USB 2.0 ports and 4 USB 3.0 ports

Unfortunately MS don't provide native USB3 support/drivers.

Have you tried a different drive?

Uh, no worries, I think its working now...
I used the much older USB3 drivers from my mobo disk (they must've gotten updated via gigabyte or intel's site), and at the end of the installation I got a BSOD and it crashed, but now its on again, and they appear to we working...
All's well that ends well, I guess.
