Installing your USB 3.0 PCI Express Card
System requirements
• PCI Express-enabled system with an available PCI Express x1 slot. (We
recommend PCI Express 2.0)
• Windows® 8, Windows® 7, Windows Vista®, Windows® XP
Cautions:
• Opening your computer's case may void your computer's warranty. Contact your
computer's manufacturer before opening the case to make sure that you do not
void the warranty.
• Before touching any electronic components, make sure that you first touch an
unpainted, grounded metal object to discharge any static electricity stored on your
clothing or body.
• Handle the PCI Express Card adapter by the metal mounting bracket and the
printed circuit board (PCB) edges only. Avoid touching the gold-plated PCIe bus
and the onboard electronic components.
Note: In order to get USB 3.0 SuperSpeed performance, use a PCI Express Ver2.0 slot for
the card installation. Refer to the user manual for your system or motherboard to find
the correct slot.
Installing the hardware
Warning: PC components often have sharp metal edges. To prevent injury, exercise
caution when removing/instaling components from your PC, especially when
exerting force.
To install the card:
1 Turn off your computer and unplug the power cord and all cables.
2 Remove your computer's case cover. See your computer's user guide for
information about removing the cover.
3 Locate an available PCI Express slot, remove the screw that secures the
backplate (the small piece of metal that covers the opening for the PCI
card on the back panel of your computer), then remove the backplate. If
you are using a slim desktop computer, attach the included short
backplate prior to installation.
To change backplates, remove the screws that secure the standard
backplate to the PCI card, remove the standard backplate, then attach
the short backplate with the screws you removed.

Troubleshooting
Check the following guide for the possible causes and solutions for a
problem before contacting the nearest service center or dealer for
repairs.
14
Symptom
The Windows Device Manager
does not show the Renesas
Electronics USB 3.0 Host
Controller.
No USB peripheral is detected
by the computer.
Conflict with other Windows
USB PCI adapters.
10
Solution
• Make sure that the PCI Express Card adapter is correctly installed in the PCIe slot.
• Remove the adapter and try a different PCIe slot in case the bus has conflicts.
• Repeat the driver installation procedure, then make sure that the device exists.
Right-click Computer in the Start menu (or My Computer on your desktop), click
Properties, then click the Device Manager. If the Renesas Electronics USB 3.0
Host Controller is shown, the PCI Express Card adapter is working correctly.
• Make sure that your computer's operating system is updated to the latest version.
• Make sure that all cables are correct and securely connected.
• Make sure that the USB device's power is turned on.
• Make sure that the devices are getting enough power.
• Make sure to plug the 4-pin power cable into the adapter card to provide sufficient
power to USB devices, or use self-powered USB devices.
• A long cable may cause poor performance. A USB repeater must be used if the cable is
longer than 3.5 meters.
• Make sure that there is no problem with the adapter installation.
• Conflicts are indicated by an entry in the Device Manager with a red X or yellow
exclamation point.
• Turn off your computer and move the adapter to another available slot, then re-install
the USB 3.0 driver.
• An exclamation point n the Device Manager usually means there is a resource conflict
between this adapter and another adapter in your system. Move the adapter to another
slot, then restart your computer. Windows will re-configure itself and re-assign
resources. Check your device manager again.
