Re: How to get computer to recognize a USB3 hub

No.  That is not how it works.  A USB 3 hub must be connected to a USB 3 port for the hub to benefit from USB 3 capabilities.  A USB 3 hub connected to a USB 2 port will only operate at USB 2 speeds.  Further more, any USB hub whether it be type 2 or 3, will share the bandwidth of the port to which it is connected.  So for example, if you have three USB 3 drives connected to a USB 3 port and all of them are transferring data at the same time, the bandwidth will be shared.  They will not all transfer at full USB 3 speed.

OK, but using my USB3 hub, that should be automatically USB3.

Do you know if your computer has usb3 ports?  My computer has  some usb ports on the back and on top of the case. Only 1 of them all is a usb 3 port.

I just got a USB3 hub and connected 3 hard drives to it. I still, however, get the message that tells me that this device can perform faster if I connect it to a USB3 hub. How do I solve this problem?  Thanks,
