Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've read the available questions on the topic, but all seemed unusefull in my case.

So: HP ProBook 4510s, running Ubuntu 13.04, x64. Available 4 USB 2.0 ports.

Recently purchased USB 3.0 Express card, that added to 34 mm Express card slot, connected the power supply of the card to adjacent USB 2.0 port. Card LED is on and all the USB 2 or USB 3 devices attached to it worked, but the maximum speed reached was up to 37 MB/s (using USB 3.0 external HDD). To be honest, that is better than attaching the same device to regular USB 2.0 port (up to 24-29 MB/s), but far of the USB 3.0 spec's.

Also system cannot boot from device attached to the new card.

As per previous topics performed lspci and lsusb checks and (for me) everything looks normally.

Here's the relevant extracts from output:

 Bus 010 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub

These are before attaching a device to USB 3.0 ports. After adding the new card in the list appeared the last two rows (Bus 009 and 010)

When attach a USB 3.0 device, it appears in the list, but at bus 009

Whichever of the two ports of the card I choose, the device appeared attached to bus 009.

Please help.

If you go askubuntu.com/editing-help it will tell you all. Basically, to get a line-break, you can use the <br /> html code or just hit enter twice. The code needs to have a line-break at the beginning and then 4 spaces in front of each line of code. –  SimplySimon Jul 24 '13 at 15:09
