Yep, I just read your last post.

Yes, and it's curious that automatically fallbacks from "super-high-
speed" to "high-speed" unless you have connected a USB 2.0 device. Maybe
founds something that don't like.

Hey, that's true... but hurts ;-)
Maybe it's not the drivers to blame but the device (or even the USB
controller), you know, there are many chipset manufacturers out there who
are more interested in putting the "USB 3.0" logo to increase their sales
but their USB 3.0 implementation lacks for many of the standards
guidelines. And you know what happens then with all of those
"undocumented" features: they explode in front of the user :-)
