Windows 7: USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 internal header adapter

10 Jun 2014   #11

W7 Pro x64 SP1 | W10 Pro IP x64 | W8.1 Pro x64 VM | Linux Mint VM

Just as an aside, have you seen these? A PCI-e card that gives you an internal 20-pin USB 3.0 header. You could get your port working as USB 3.0 then.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64

I've seen similar products to that, but as I'm beginning to consider upgrading my CPU and motherboard in the relatively near future, so that I will have a native USB 3 header, an additional PCI-e slot, as I've only got one x16 and one x4 at the moment. I just wanted the adapter to be able to use the USB port in the mean time. Thanks anyway :)
