USB 3.0 simply may be transferring data too fast for USB 2.0 devices that need two-way communication. I ran into a problem when I plugged an older printer into a new computer's USB 3.0 port, printed about 2 inches then failed with a 'lost communication' error, no such problem with a USB 2.0 port.

A human can not move a mouse or type fast enough to need USB 3.0 speed. A human can't even use all the speed of a USB 2.0.
Just use the USB 2.0.
