    Asmedia USB 3.0 Drivers


    Hi,

    I have an Asrock Z77 Extreme4-M motherboard and been looking around for an update for Asmedia drivers.
    The problem is I read a post here about updating USB 3.0 asmedia driver via microsoft.
    I have a disc that came with the MB that has Asmedia 104x host controller driver.
    But there is no host USB 3.0 controller showing in device manager, does that mean I should install the microsoft one as well.
    I,m a bit confused so any help here would be much appreciated.


    Thanks

    Windows 10 has native support for USB 3.0. Most USB 3.0 chipsets (including those built into the Intel chipset) are supported without a separate driver. Install your motherboard chipset driver.

    You can also get modded drivers from Fernando and the boys over at Win-RAID.com. Try this link to see what's available: Forum - USB 3.0/3.1 Drivers (original and modded). I've had universally good luck with these.

    Hi,
    I'm still confused with this, what I meant to say is that I've got a intel USB 3.0 EHC, but do I still need to install asmedia drivers that came with the MB. Because when I install these asmedia drivers the computer seems to freeze up and I just can't get any where. Still no USB 3.0 ports working. When I read a post earlier here I saw they had asmedia drivers for windows 10, so should I try those instead, I just don't know how to solve the issue. My drivers get installed into windows programs, but no asmedia driver in device manager. Talk about confussing.

    Thanks

    Do you have usb 3.0 expansion card connected to the motherboard slot if no then all you have to do is install chipset driver.

    If you have a usb 3.0 expansion card connected to the motherboard slot then you might need to install driver supplied by the usb 3.0 expansion card manufacturer.

    Download the ASMedia USB 3.0 driver from Microsoft Update Catalog link below.

    Hi,

    Once again from what I've read and understood the two USB 3.0 ports at the back of the motherboard get there power through the pcie bus.
    So are you telling me not install my original asmedia driver with MB. But update my Intel (R) ehc USB 3.0 to Asmedia usb 3.0 ehc in device manager and then my ports will work.


    Thanks

    Your motherboard has two different USB 3.0 controllers - the Intel controller and the ASMedia controller. They have separate drivers.

    This is because back in the day the Intel controller only supported a small number of ports so OEMs added a secondary controller to get some extra ports.

    I sold my ASRock Z77 board a few months back but I recall Windows 10 already having ASMedia drivers. Do you see any yellow bangs in Device Manager? What does it show under USB controllers?

    Hi,
    Funny enough I had Asrock support telling me that my board does not have an asmedia chip, my board is Asrock Z77 Extreme 4-M, but I have a support cd which came with all mb drivers and sure enough the asmedia 104x drivers are on there. There is no yellow marks so everything looks ok. But only 1 hub showing USB 3.0 I have two usb 3.0 front and two on the back.


    Thanks

    Sorry, I missed that you had the Extreme4-M, not the Extreme4. According to the ASRock website the 4 has the ASMedia controller but the 4-M actually does not.

    The CD that comes with the motherboard is most likely a generic one that contains drivers for all their boards.

    So is the issue that your rear 3.0 ports don't work at all? Can you try plugging something in and running USB Device Tree Viewer to see what shows up?
