At work I have nothing but problems running USB 2 devices on USB 3 ports. 90 0percent of the time I get blue screens when you plug ina USB 2 devices into the USB 3 port. These are ivybridge based dell machines with all of the latest drivers.

Thank you, Firey. So I am correct.


There are instances where 32-bit drivers are incompatible with 64-bit OS. A lot of instances actually. So no, you're not correct. Vista 64-bit drivers can also be flakey on 7/8.

Yes, they "can be", Shockz. It's a base on base case. They sometimes work, when other times it can't. Don't call a maybe as a won't.

Actually its most instances. Installing 32-bit drivers on a 64-bit system is NEVER good advice.

But when you are left with no choice, that is your last chance in seeing any improvement. It works or it doesn't, not like it's going to blow up.
