    Asus N56VM laptop Intel USB 3.0 drivers


    Hi,

    First time on this forums, and Dutch aswell, so I apologise if I do or say something wrong.

    I have a ASUS N56VM laptop, I have upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro a few months ago (free DreamSpark account) and I can't get USB 3.0 to work at the speeds at which it needs to work. An 3GB ISO which I copy from my HDD to an USB3.0 USB-stick gets a max speed of 25 mb per second. I have already tried everything I could think of, including the following:


    "Windows 8* has a native in-box USB 3.0 driver. Intel is not releasing a specific Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver for Windows 8."



    The driver I have is: imgur: the simple image sharer

    Any help in this would be much appreciated. The only thing I can think of is maybe mailing ASUS if they can supply a new BIOS revision or mailing Intel if they can supply some new chipset drivers...

    Thanks in advance!

    Sander

    EDIT1: A few months back, when the laptop was still running Windows 7, the read/write speeds were "normal", meaning that they were what you would expect from USB 3.0.

    How fast you can transfer depends of the capability of the two devices involved. For instance, copying from an internal SSD to an external 3.0 SSD is probably the fastest depending on the read/write speeds.

    USB 3.0 flash drives vary greatly in their capabilities. You might check some retail site to see the differences in the transfer speeds of the different models.

    To get really fast speeds, a compatible flash drive may cost quite a bit more than an every day one of the same capacity.

    Installing the Intel driver (assuming you mean the driver that is provided at their website for the extensible host controller) doesn't work because it is not compatible with Windows 8. Windows 8 also says that when I try to install it, there are compatibility issues. The link you provided was a link that I have already come across, that gave me the idea of updating the BIOS. The xHCI setting is also set to Enabled. I also don't think its routed to eHCI.

    Maybe I should have mentioned the fact that in Windows 7, I could get transfer speeds up to 40 mb/s with the flash drive (ADATA S102 Pro), and about 80 mb/s with a external HDD (ADATA Classic CH11). I also have a desktop that still runs Windows 7 and the speeds on the desktop are normal (40, 80).

    Also, I have compared the speeds with a friend of mine at school today, he got about 80 mb/s on his Dell laptop (equal, but he got drivers from Dell) and I got stuck at about 30 mb/s with the same external HDD. We both copied from our internal HDD which has the same RPM and everything..

    I'm really sorry but, what do you mean exactly? Should I download this driver, unzip it, and then try to update the driver that I currently have with the driver from the Intel Download Center? Running the setup doesn't work because of those compatibility issues and trying to update from within Device Manager also doesn't work because Device Manager can't find a better or newer driver inside that folder. Selecting the .inf when selecting Have Disk also gives compatibility issues.
