USB 3.0 Hub treatment of USB 2.0 connections.

My old USB 2.0 hub (7 port with external power) had been getting 
increasingly flaky over time with various devices dropping out and 
re-connecting (printer, keyboard wireless receiver and so on) so I 
bought a new one.  An Anker 7 port USB 3.0 with ext. p/s.

I had no USB 3.0 peripherals when I first hooked it up.

When looking at system profiler there were no USB 3.0 devices - not even 
the hub - showing.  Fastest interface was shown as 480 Mb/s.

Today I received a couple USB 3.0 docks and after initially hooking them 
straight to the Mac, I tried, as an experiment, passing the USB 3.0 
through the hub.

Did not connect.

So I powered off the hub and disconnected it from the Mac, then 
reconnected it all.

The disk appeared.  And the Highspeed USB 3.0 appeared in profile (at 5 

So once it's running with USB 2.0 devices only connected, the hub 
doesn't take to new 3.0 devices showing up.  Once they're there, it's 
fine.  Copy rate via the hub from the disk on the 3.0 was the same as a 
direct connection.  (I've since put the USB 3.0 disk directly to the 

I had assumed that USB 2.0 traffic would be "wrapped" in USB 3.0 and 
passed to the computer and unwrapped.  But it appears it remains 
electrically and logically USB 2.0.  (Then I found this:
implying that USB 2.0 and 3.0 follow different hardware paths (not clear 
if those are "logical" paths but clearly USB 2.0 traffic is not 
"wrapped" in USB 3.0 for transport from the hub to the computer.

Insights anyone?

   Privacy has become an essential personal chore that most
   people are not trained to perform.

Convert USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 Crazy?

Something like FT245BM for USB 2.0 ? Parallel -> USB with real USB 2.0 bandwidth ?
Hello, is there a chip, in functionality like a FT245BM for USB 2.0 ? I found on websites mentioning the FT245BM compatible for USB 2.0, but i think they don't use USB 2.0, because transfer rate is "only" 1 MByte/s, which looks like high speed USB. Is there a faster parallel USB chip, which achieves more than 1 MByte / s ? I think with USB 2.0 there must be at least a factor of 10 to this speed ?

USB 3.0 slow with some USB 3.0 hard disks
I'm using Windows XP 32-bit Home with NEC/Renesas USB 3.0 PCI-E cards equipped with the uPD702000A chip. I'm getting about 90 megabytes/sec sustained transfers with USB 3.0 enclosures based on a Genesis chip but only 35 MB/s with Seagate GoFlex drives. This is with both nVidia GeForce 6100 and Intel ICH5 motherboards. It doesn't matter whether I use the newest NEC driver or the one included with the Seagate GoFlex. I've had no luck updating the NEC firmware because at the start the updater software gives an error message: W200FWUP.EXE - Entry Point Not Fou...

if time = 3 seconds, how do i set the values of the time steps 0,0.1,0.2,0.3,0.5,1.0,1.5,2.0,3.0,5.0 to -9999 from time =3 seconds
Hi &nbsp; I have 18 inputs (arrays) which contain certain statistics and if time&nbsp;&nbsp;= 3 seconds, set the values of time step 5.0 to -9999.0. &nbsp; I was wondering if there is an efficient way to do this without using a lot of case statements? &nbsp; Thank you. Hello AdrianT, it's not really clear to me what you want to do... I suspect: you have an array containing values and you want to output them with a fixed timing of 3 seconds: you should use a for loop autoindexing trough your array and sending the value to your indicator/output/whatever. Put a "wait for next multiple" into your for loop. Or do you want to have a minimum time delay of 3 seconds? Again use a for loop, get the time value and use a InRange&amp;Coerce with minimum set to 3 seconds... Or you should explain more precisely what you need... Hi Thanks for that. Let me explain. &nbsp; The time may vary. Let me give an example. if time&nbsp; = 2.1, I want to set the time step's &nbsp;3.0 and 5.0's values to -9999.0. if the time =0.1 seconds then I want to set 0.2,0.3, 0.5 etc values to -9999.0 etc .................................................................... &nbsp; Can you please help? Thank you. Hello TUDS, do you use different accounts/nicknames ? Well, that's easy, at least for a sorted array: Search for your time-value in the array (Threshold 1D array). Fill all elements from that index till the end with your "error...

USB 2.0
Hi all: In order to connect to an external 2.5 harddisk with USB, I have tried three different USB 2.0 PCMCIA (Cardbus) cards (Belkin, Dynex and Zonet) on my Compaq Presario 2197 (AMD Athlon XP 2800). The cards can all be recognized, but only on the Zonet card the hard drive is recognized. Even so, the speed is very slow. Transfering a file of 1GB will take about 25-27 minutes. I have also tried an Acomdata external harddrive, which works great with an IBM laptop, and see the same thing. BTW, the time for transfering a 1GB file on the IBM is about 6-7 minutes. It is not as quick as ...

USB Portable 3.0/2.0 reliability
I need a 1TB or larger portable hard drive for use in 3 world foreign net cafes. The idea of NOT needing a separate power supply appeals to me, but I wonder if the portable USB drives are less reliable than using an internal drive with a usb adapter and separate power supply? Also you have heat problems with these portable drives that are less of a problem with a bare internal drive I am thinking. What factors govern this?

Generic USB 2.0 hub showing up as USB 1.1
I have two generic 4-port USB hubs that are supposed to be USB 2.0 compliant. The older one is fine, works as advertised. Meanwhile the newer one sometimes shows up under the USB 2.0 root hub (i.e. "Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller"), or usually it shows up under the slower "Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller" (USB 1.1). My motherboard (Asus M2NPV-VM) USB ports are all USB 2.0 compliant, and they individually auto-detect whether they need to switch down to USB 1.1 speeds.

old USB 1.0 scanner behind 2.0 hub not working (win98se)
I'm having a problem with getting a (probably USB 1.0) scanner working behind a USB 2.0 hub. Other USB 1.X devices that are not plugged into the hub work fine. The scanner has an exclamation point in Device Manager. I did find a workaround by uninstalling USB 2.0 drivers for the USB controller in Device Manager. With that, the scanner exclamation point goes away, and everything works fine (but apparently in USB 1.X mode). I get a device manager exclamation point on an "Unknown USB device" (where the USB 2.0 controller was), but two VIA 3038 controllers remain in d...

akismet 0.1.2, cgiutils 0.3.5, pathutils 0.2.3
Hello All, A new release and two updates. New akismet.py 0.1.2 ================ Python Interface to the Akismet API Version 0.1.2 4th December 2005 http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/modules.shtml#akismet `Akismet <http://www.akismet.com>`_ is a web service for recognising spam comments. It promises to be almost 100% effective at catching comment spam. They say that currently 81% of all comments submitted to them are spam. It's designed to work with the `Wordpress Blog Tool <http://wordpress.org/>`_, but it's not restricted to that - so this is a Python interface to the `Akismet API <http://akismet.com/development/api/>`_. You'll need a `Wordpress Key <http://wordpress.com>`_ to use it. This script will allow you to plug akismet into any CGI script or web application, and there are full docs in the code. It's extremely easy to use, because the folks at akismet have implemented a nice and straightforward {acro;REST;REpresentational State Transfer} API. It also comes with an `example CGI <http://www.voidspace.org.uk/cgi-bin/akismet/test_akismet.py>`_. (Although the akismet feature of an "example positive" doesn't seem to be working currently - there fault not mine :-) You can read the full (Python) docs at : * `akismet.py Docs <http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/akismet_python.html>`_ Download it here : * http://www.voidspace.org.uk/cgi-bin/voidspace/downman.py...
