Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I believe NEC was bought out by Renasis. The newest drivers would be Renasis drivers.

I'll see if I can find one. But I'm not sure it would have helped me with Renesas.

Not sure if anyone is still reading this forum, I have tried for days to find a relevant forum that has been able to assist me. I have an Acer Aspire T660 desktop, about 5 years old, recently upgraded RAM and had to upgrade to the latest BIOS for it to work. I have also recently bought a Freecom USB3 3.5" 2tb external drive formatted to NTFS. I therefore purchased a USB3 PCI express card and installed.

Now, I can use USB2 devices in the PCI card and also use the 2tb Freecom in USB2 ports but when I plug it in to the USB3 card, Windows asks to format the drive (which as I have taken all the data off it, I have no issue) I then get another message: "Windows cannot format I". "Check to see that the disk & drive are connected properly, make sure the disk is not read only & then try again.

Checked all the above to no avail. I have also installed the latest driver for the USB Host. I have checked the BIOS and it says USB2 Enabled but no similar item for USB3. Acer were no help and advised they would not offer support as this was not their hardware...

Really didn't think it would be so difficult to buy a USB3 drive and try to utilise the speeds. The time I have wasted trying to get it working for USB3 is more than the time spent using the device at USB2 speeds... Any thoughts or ideas, I have exhausted all of my limited knowledge.

The only suggestions I can make is go to Freedoms website. They probably have an updated driver for windows 7. Plug it in, ignore windows wanting to format and go to disk management to see if it is found there. If so, format it or create a partition if there is not one there. If there is no partition on it, right click and select create simple volume. Follow the prompts and format it NTFS. Then see if it will work.

Why doesn't Microsoft support USB3.0?
G'day, We all know that in order to use USB3.0 ports, we need to install 3rd party drivers (e.g. Etron, NEC etc.). Sometimes this can be a real pain in the bum. With the increasing popularity of cheap USB3 storage devices, it seems logical to me that Microsoft would write and support their own...
