Windows 7 PROBLEM with USB 3.0 PART TWO - Continuing Quest

Windows 7 PROBLEM with USB 3.0 PART TWO -

Continuing Quest

Consider: USB Mass Storage Device Drivers used in WIN XP, 7, 8

PLATFORMS Tested:

Dell Dimension 4550 3.06 Ghz P4 HT enabled
Dell Dimension 4500 2.80 Ghz P4
ADDONICS Host Controller 2-Port USB 3.0 PCI Controller
WD My Book Essential 1130 2TB USB 3.0/2.0 external drive
Transcend JF700 USB 3.0 16GB flashdrive

Operating Systems:

Windows XP SP3 with NECEL-USB3-Host-Driver-10170-setup - works flawlessly
01/07/2001 5.1.2600.0 (USB 2.0 / 3.0 - only one encountered)

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1
RENESAS-USB3-Host-Driver-21281-setup - problematic

21/06/2006 6.1.7600 16385
21/06/2006 6.1.7601 17577 (USB 2.0 / 3.0 - best chance for connection)
21/06/2006 6.1.7601 17586

Compared to XP and WIN 8, this seems to be a little confused...
Anything from 1 to 10 re-installations of USB 3.0 driver required for connection to take effect
Once achieved, connection is solid, can backup etc BUT lost on restart - [Definitely NOT USB 2.0 performance, tested]

Windows 8 Consumer Preview
with Renesas USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 0096 (Microsoft)

21/06/2006 6.2.8250.0 (USB 2.0 / 3.0 - only one encountered)

This driver is Native to WIN 8, when uninstalled , RE-installed automatically with 'Scan for Hardware Changes' or Restart
Anything from 0 to 6 re-installations of USB 3.0 driver required for connection to take effect


Once achieved, connection is solid, can backup etc BUT lost on restart - [Definitely NOT USB 2.0 performance, tested]
?
OBJECT: Cont.

Demonstrate that problem lies with WIN 7 / WIN 8 - Once connected, that shoud let your Host Controller and USB 3.0 drivers AND Chipset off the hook
