    I know some people (Mussels) were having issues with gigabyte boards and charging phones:


    *NOTE: Due to certain mobile phone limitations, users may need to connect the mobile phone to their PC before the PC enters S4/S5 mode to enable a quick charge from non ON/OFF Charge USB ports.
    *
    Maximum 3 devices can be charged at the same time. Charging current may vary with PSU 5V stand-by spec.

    That 4015 firmware has been seen in boards like, Z68X-UD7-B3, with the dual usb 3.0 chips.
    But, have not seen it for download.

    Something to Sherlock!:)

    you have to set "USB selective suspend setting" to Disabled
    btw you might also disable power saving in device manager on the nec controller
    not sure that realy is needed but still, nec is annoying :p

    i got a ExpressCard that has 4015 firmware
    seems to work better with 2.1.19 driver than 3028 firmware on PCI Express x1 cards

    FYI, i just updated the list and downloads for usb 3.0 drivers on my blog

    Done!

    See the instructions here: http://forum.oszone.net/post-1722285.html#post1722285

    The forum is in russian (use google translate). Download the file linked in that post (I used JDownloader). Than translate the how to with google translate as well. If you find garbage text when you open it, you have to switch to the right encoding (I used Notepad++ and selected OEM 866 in the Encoding - Charset - Cyrillic menu).

    Bye!

    Download using an obscure download manager from an obscure Russian website? How about supplying or linked the file here instead and save everyone the trouble?

    Jdownloader is not that obscure. It's very popular. I used that because I don't know any word in russian so I was not able to download directly from the website. I've tried that on my mobo ASRock 890FX Deluxe 4.

    Anyway, in that package you will find all the tools needed for the update, except for the updated firmware that you can find on station-drivers.

    Now it's up to you if you want to try. I did it and it works. If you want to update that is the only way if you have multiple controllers (it's just about using some command switches of the updater and adding two lines to the cfg.ini, everything written in detail in the howto).

    Bye.

    Regarding the driver version 2.1.25.0

    I have firmware revision 3025 on an Asus Sabertooth X58 with BIOS1201 and currently run driver 2.1.19.0 on Windows 7 x64.

    I tried updating to this newer driver but experienced a clash with the Nvidia driver 285.27 beta and my GTX570s in SLI.

    This new driver has problems with my setup and stops the graphics driver from operating in SLI correctly. Non-SLI seems to be OK but as soon as SLI is selected, the driver crashes out and reverts the screen resolution to low with the graphics hardware reported as stopped in device manager. Update/clean install of Renesas driver 2.1.25.0 same result.
    Back to previous build and all is OK.

    FYI

    I had a problem as well with 285.27 Beta and Skype. 460GTX, single right now

    I thought it was Beta Driver, so I went back to previoius version. Skype now works.

    Now I am thinking it is the 2.1.25.0 Driver. UNSURE???

    The Renesas/NEC driver installed OK but disables SLI and forces the hardware to release the driver. With SLI disabled, all seems OK.

    This may be purely a bug with the Nvidia beta driver. The only way to test would be to go back to a previous Renesas/NEC driver ( I'm running 2.1.19.0 without error in tandem with the beta Nvidia driver).

    The USB 3.0 host controller driver is the easiest to remove/re-install, so get the one supplied by your motherboard manufacturer and uninstall 2.1.25.0 and put the older one on. Then re-install (cleanly) the beta driver and check everything is OK. If not, then it's the Nvidia beta and not the Renesas/NEC driver.
    A WHQL will be along shortly in any case from Nvidia.

    My problem was with SLI.

    Thanks for info of new drivers!:toast: (MSI hsn't updated their downloads page for a while)

    Bad thing: Readme says basically that if something is wrong, it won't run firmware update, but in my case that means it stops flashing process in the middle, freaking me out, then introduces memory leak, which forces hard restart. (that happens when you try to flash 4015 firmware to uPD720200 chip:D)

    Good thing: successfully updated latest Firmware(3028) and Driver(2.1.25.0) for my MSI Star USB3 PCIE card.

    thanks for the info on new renesas driver on intel site and firmware from station-driver.

    unfortunately this cheap pcie x1 to usb 3.0 addon card is still not compatible with wd my passport essential 500gb usb 3.0 external drive or vice versa. :(

    disable the usb 3.0 power management didn't help too, the system could not detect any drive at all.

    already plugged in. it's using 7207200a chip. from the renesas site, this one is a power safer compared the old 7207200 one.

    gigabyte ga-890fxa-ud5 v2.1 use the old chipset and it can powered wd passport essential 500gb usb 3.0 using both original short cable from wd and cheap 1.5m usb 3.0 cable long flawlessly.

    i've tested with my vendor regarding the pcie x1 usb 3.0, and it can only detect usb 3.0 flashdrive, not portable hard drive. the wd sure was powered but the system could not initialize it.

    It isn't. The uPD720201 & uPD720202 are the next version of the Renesas USB 3.0 chips and are incompatible with uPD720200(a). For one thing, they add features like USB 3.0 Debug (which, at long last, may make USB a viable replacement for serial ports) and they use internal flash ROM, as opposed to external for uPD720200.

    Now, while the drivers have been made public, it doesn't look like anybody (except the few people who got advanced samples directly from Renesas) will be able to get their hands on these controllers before 2012, as uPD720201 & uPD720202 based products won't be available for the general public before then. As such, having access to the uPD720201 & uPD720202 drivers is currently quite useless...
