Driver cd inreadeable but card OK – 34/54MM Express to USB 3.0 Card for Notebook Reviews

posted by mcgyver75 on 06/02/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
-Card works fine though the usb3 socket seems a bit tiny.
-21 seconds to send a 1gb file to a generic USB3 enclosure for esata HDD. (52 sec on USB2, 180sec with usb3 bad driver)
Cons:
-Driver cd is impossible to read whatever the cdrom player involved.
-No information leaflet and the box doesn t even mention usb3 express cards on the backside summary.
Many errors on internet forums to describe usb3 chip inside...
Other:
Finaly, it appears that chip inside is a fresco one and Michael Ballack, amazon consumer, gives the best link in comments to find the latest drivers (2011 april). Thanks to him.
Bottomline:
Good product if have time to search for drivers on the internet and practise english.
