Hello everyone!
My laptop has 2 USB 3.0 slots. When using a USB 2.0 cable on a USB 3.0 device it works great except I obviously don't get the speed of the USB 3.0 cable. As a matter of fact, when using the USB 3.0 cable, the device (an external 500Gb sata hdd) is not recognized at all.
After perusing the forums for a couple of weeks now, I have not been able to find any info about USB 3.0. Does Ubuntu 12.04 support USB 3.0? Due to the vast increase of data transfer speeds with USB 3.0, I'd love to be able to utilize this drive to its' full potential via USB 3.0.
I'm probably just doing some simple thing wrong! Anyone out there who could 'enlighten' me, I'd be real grateful!
Just when you start considering yourself 'not a noob' something like this comes along to bring you down a notch!
Anyway, any advice will be greatly appreciated!
By-the-way, the cable that came with my external device is a USB 3.0 cable.
Thanks,
Jed
