If you can't find the driver anywhere else, I have found that you may find it if you do a Windows update. Do a scan for Windows updates. Look in the optional updates, and if you see an update for this card, install only that one update. To save time, don't install any other updates, not even the "important" ones.

Thanks for the input. -- I have purchased a new card that will hopefully have a driver cd when it comes since Win 7 does not support USB 3.0

I hope you are right. A few years ago I purchased a USB3 card, and it came with a driver CD. But the problem was, there were four different drivers on the CD, and the instructions didn't say which driver to use. Rather than trying each driver one at a time, I solved it by searching on the card's VEN and DEV numbers at www.pcidatabase.com. Unfortunately that very useful site went dark a couple of years ago.

Dead USB port
I have my two front ports that won't recognize an external Toshiba 320 gig hard drives. It will recognize other items, i.e. thumbdrive, cables, Blackberry, Ipod. The Toshiba works in a USB port on my old XP system. What was the fix? Thanks, Murf
