Windows 7: Your device can perform faster when you connect it to a usb3 device

Your device can perform faster when you connect it to a usb3 device

Hi all,

i need your advise pls.

I have a Samsung series 7 laptop with 2 usb3 ports and 2 usb 2.0 ports. On the device manager i can see the installed driver Intel usb 3.0 root hub and intel usb 3.0 extensive host controller.

I also have purchased a Samsung 64GB sdxc card SDXC UHS (I), that according to manufacturer it can reach speeds "Transfer Speed: Up to 80 MB/s Read and up to 40 MB/s Write". I have enclosed this in a USPEED USB3 card reader, so that I use this as a 64Gb usb3 flash drive.

My problem is that everytime I connet this flash drive to my laptop's usb 3 ports, I get the message "This device can perform faster if you connect it to a superspeed usb 3 port" (!!) so I dont get it! What is wrong??

Actual writing speeds, when i copy large files (eg movie) this is done at 28 - 30 MB/s while speeds when copying many small files (folder with many smaller images) is done at 10 - 11.5 Mb/s.

I also have a usb 3.0 Seagate hard drive but I dont see this message everytime I connect it. Also, the exact same test (with the exact same files beeing transferred) are: Large files (eg movie) at 90 - 95 MB/s while smaller files (folder with many smaller images) is done at 34 - 37.5 Mb/s

I know that the Samsung SD card can't achieve the same speeds, but I am mostly curious why this message comes up "This device can perform faster if you connect it to a superspeed usb 3 port" . Is my flash drive operating at usb 3.0?

Thank you for your help

Hi Dionisis , I have a couple of USB 3.0 flash sticks that give me the same message even though I have them in a USB 3.0 port.
In your case it may be due to the fact that an SDXC card isn't really a USB device, I'm not sure on this. someone else may have a better explanation.

You can run comparisons using the same files and copying in the 2.0 and the 3.0 ports to see any difference.

Hi Britton and thank you for your answer.

I did make a test with the same files while having the flash disk connected to a usb 2.0 port on the same Laptop and this time the writing speed of the large files was at 24 Mb/sec (vs 28-30 usb 3.0) and the smaller files had 9-10Mb/s (vs 10 - 11.5 Mb/s usb 3.0). Do you think this proves what you say? is this the case?

My tests with the flash stick were similar so I suspect it's ok and mainly a limitation of the SDXC card whitch are generally rated as xx Speed or Class xx.

USB 2 has a theoretical throughput of 35MB/s and USB 3 400MB/s, my devices got nowhere near that speed. They do work faster in the USB 3 ports though.

I never figured out why I got the same stupid warning like you did.
