I saw posts on gmyle /product_p/3100.htm website that drivers for Fresco Logic 100x and ASMedia 104x worked. I searched the Hardware ID from Device Manager and it matched the ASMedia 104x chipset. So I downloaded the latest drivers (v1.16.2) from station-drivers dot com /page/asmedia.htm and it is working fine. It appears in device manager as ASMedia XHCI Controller.
Works as advertised
Very basic packaging and driver CD is useless.
I'm very satisfied with the purchase and would recommend it.
- Early 2011 MacBook Pro
- OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.4 (see NOTE below)
- USB 3.0 driver from MultiBeast 5.5.4
This works great. It is very welcome to install this, connect a $25 Kingston USB3 card reader and have my SanDisk Extreme CF being read at 70 MB/s and written at 59 MB/s. Plus I can expect to connect USB 3 hard drives in the future and again avoid the considerable premium of a FireWire or Thunderbolt solution.
As others have noted:
- It will work once you reboot after installing the driver from MultiBeast
- If you do not hold the ExpressCard in while pulling out your USB cable, you will probably pull the card out. I can push it back in, but it is not recognized for me until next reboot.
NOTE: MultiBeast or Apple forums (can't remember which) indicate that the update to 10.8.5 will stop the GMYLE from working. Lucky I am slow at applying updates. MultiBeast is already available for Mavericks. I will test the GMYLE when booted off a Mavericks USB disk before the big upgrade.
UPDATE Nov 9, 2013: I have installed Mavericks 10.9 on an external drive, added the MultiBeast Mavericks 6.0.0 USB 3 driver and can confirm this card works with OS X Mavericks 10.9.
No documentation, so you might have to feel your way around the supplied CD ROM. For an Intel 64 bit processor the first file on the disc should contain what you need.
I tested the card using three different USB Discs, running a copy of 1.1 gigabytes from the HDD. The copy was consistently about twice as fast using the USB 3 card as with the USB 2 ports on the computer. This is what I want the card for: speeding up Windows Backup to USB discs.
The I/O figures showed the right sort of numbers when viewed with the System Monitor utility.
The only downside is that the Inspiron 1545 I'm using has a ballpoint pen-style "clicker" to press-and-release the card, and if the USB plug is a little tight you can end up ejecting the card while trying to plug in a drive. I suffered the third blue screen in five years by doing that and count myself lucky that the disc wasn't trashed.
None of this is an intrinsic fault of the card, but I've gotten into the habit of plugging into the card then plugging the card into the PCI Express port. Everything seems to mount correctly when I do that.
Well worth the money it cost so far. I'll come back and say so if it fails prematurely.
The only problem I'm having - and this is true of any ExpressPort cards - is that if you accidentally eject the card by pushing the USB connector in too vigorously then I have to reboot the MBP to see the card again. There is probably some command line procedure I could do in Terminal to get it recognized again but that is currently beyond my skill set. [At least the card DOES lock in the slot, as opposed to the original Sonnet Echo ExpressCard/34 on our MacMini server where the slightest movement will unseat the eSATA ExpressCard and we lose our RAID - that's the next tech-fix project...]
