Well, I bought a neat external HDD dual-dock, got it home and realised I'd screwed up: it was the USB3 version, not the e-SATA/USB version I was after. So after a bit of peeking around I've seen some USB3 express cards which I'm thinking might work.
I am an express card virgin so have little idea. It is a powered dock but figuring USB3 port will need some power.
I have been quite happy booting [KLX]Ubuntu from usb2 or usb3 pendrives in a usb2 port. (A usb3 pendrive has faster flash than most usb2 ones, so that they will use more of the usb2 port transfer speed.
I'm a new Fedora's user but I have a little problem when I power off my computer.
I have assembled this computer:
Asus Sabertooth Z77
OCZ Vertex 3 SSD
Plextor DVD burner
Icy Box IB-865-B Media Card Reader
The Media Card Reader is an USB3.0 reader and it is connected on usb3.0 internal header of the system board.
Hey, I am wondering if there are any USB3 header adapters. My header on my board is broken. And my case has USB3. So you remember the old cases had the Pass through? It would put the uSB3 front port through the back port. Is there any Adapter for my case header to adapt to a male USB3 plug?
I've had a Windows 7 (previously Windows Vista) in my living room serving as a media center for a few years. The PC works fine, but over time it had become noticeably slow compared to the new machines I have. I've upgraded memory and that has helped a lot.
Would it be useful if I upgrade it with USB3.0 express card?
