Zitat von Pete12 im Beitrag #758
Now is my question , which USB-port is from Asmedia and which ones are from Intel ??
EDIT 1] My apologies for the wrong information regarding using USB 2 ports below, after re-reading the information on page 1 regarding the Intel USB 3-3.1 drivers, it actually states and I quote "Make sure, that your mouse and keyboard is not connected to any Intel USB port." So that means that we shouldn't be using ANY Intel USB port when updating to the Fernando's modded Intel USB 3-3.1 drivers. So I've actually learned something here, and I shall not edit what I have written bellow just in case someone else thinks along the same line that I was, that it is OK to use any USB 2 ports while updating the USB 3-3.1 ports' drivers... or am I actually correct in this? Can anyone shed some light, please?
EDIT 2] I have answered my own question, I just found the information which I can not recall if I have already read, and had forgotten?? but at the top of the page on Page 1 of this thread, it states that it is OK to use USB 2 ports [* from the same manufacturer] if updating the USB 3-3.1 drivers. I quote:
"Tips for the manual installation of USB 3.0/3.1 drivers:
Before starting with the installation, you should make sure, that your input devices (keyboard and mouse) are connected with *USB 2.0 ports or with USB 3.0 ports from another manufacturer"
I think therefore I feel, to make this absolutely clear, the wording could be changed to:
"Before starting with the installation, you should make sure, that your input devices (keyboard and mouse) are connected with USB 2.0 ports [from the same manufacturer] or with USB 3.0 ports from another manufacturer".
And maybe repeat the [clarification] above in the Intel USB 3-3.1 driver update section, where it is written in red, I quote:
Warning: Users, who don't have the option to temporarily switch to an USB port, which is managed by another (non-Intel) USB Controller, should not try to manually install these mod+signed USB 3.0 drivers! They may not be able to use any USB device after the update of the USB 3.0/3.1 Controller driver."
The above is a bit confusing because it makes it sound as though you can not use ANY USB port from the same manufacturer, where as the top of the page it states that a USB 2 port from the same manufactured is OK to use while updating the USB 3-3.1 drivers.
I am only trying to add some constructive comments here, so that others might not get confused or miss that important point regarding USB 2 ports are OK to use.
I'm guessing you are wanting to know which ports are USB 2 because you are going to update the USB 3-3.1 drivers to the latest ones kindly provided by Fernando, because as Fernando states on page 1 of this thread, you should not have any memory card connected to USB 3-3.1 when updated the Asmedia/Intel USB 3-3.1 port drivers? If I am correct, motherboards [and notebooks] have blue coloured USB 3 ports and black USB 2 ports on the rear panel connection plate. I take it that your MB does not have USB 3.1 ports on the rear panel connection plate? so you've had to connect a USB 3.1 expansion card. In any case, USB 3.1 of which there are 2 types [type A =red type C =black], type C looks completely different to USB 2 and USB 3 ports, so one can not get them wrong or mixed up, especially type C, because it is physically different.
I hope this is of some help, if not yourself, to someone at least
