Rampage IV Extreme/CM StormTrooper, USB 3.0 drive disconnect

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Seriously ******* pissed off, why do asus boards always have issues with front panel usb devices disconnecting??!! I've got a Hitachi USB 3.0 MX3 HDD connected to a front panel usb 3.0 port on my CM Strom Trooper, which is then linked to a RIVE USB 3.0 header and it is eternally disconnecting as I try to copy a folder to my pc. I'm ******* sick of these issues, nobody else has these issues, why the **** to I have to keep having them?!

Might help if you specify the driver you're using. Might also want to consider updating the firmware.

Asmedia USB3.0 Controller Driver V1.14.3.0 for Windows XP/Vista/7 32bit & 64bit.

If you know of the place where I can get an updated version of the firmware, I'd be willing to try it.

See the link I posted above. Try driver 1.16.1.0 and 12220E firmware.

Yea driver station, I've used it b4, but was convinced that this was another asus **** up...it possibly could be a faulty drive/cable/port as when the drive is kept totally steady it seems to be transferring the data; computers seriously piss me off! At times it doesn't recognise the drive is connected?!

btw, is that unsanctioned firmware gonna play nice with my bios?

It wants me to enter into the dos environment from boot, do you know the start to finish method to do this? Th instructions are poor.

It should. I just flashed the ASMedia ports on my Rampage IV Extreme earlier today.

You need a bootable USB stick.

As for how to do this, refer to the last part of this guide: http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/27576-bios-flashing-how-qflash-guide.html

When you enter DOS, type d.bat to figure how what your current firmware is. Then type u.bat and that will flash all applicable ASMedia controllers. When it's done, restart the computer.

I'm in the process of making the bootable disk (taking awhile), once it's completed do I just dump all of the files that came in that asmedia zip onto the usb stick, or just a select number? I imagine there will be all the dos boot files on there already...would I just dump them into the mix?

Once I'd formatted the disk, I found there was nothing on it...I take it that's correct. I dumped all the asmedia files onto the disk, bar readme and the url, then I attempeted to boot from it....nothing, I reordered the boot order but it just doesn't seem to wanna boot from it? confusedsmiley.png


Edit: my bad, for some reason once I'd disabled all other boot options it decided it would enjoy a date with the usb flash disk, go figure?!

Anywoo I'll test it's stability and report back.

Thanks for the help, much appreciated.
