Based on the symptoms you describe it sounds like your OS has USB 2.0 drivers but not USB 3.0 drivers. I found a good summary on a post by tonymac user a6f691ac: XHCI Mode = Disabled - The on-board USB 3.0 port function like a 2.0 port XHCI Mode = Enabled - The on-board USB 3.0 port function like a 3.0 port XHCI Mode = Auto - The ...

The new USB-C standard cables are reversible, flippable and the device circuits communicate with each other to regulate the amount of power transferred. I would expect to see some kind of Settings panel that allows you to select which way power is transferred. From a Yahoo Tech article that has that has more details and animations... Type-C also offers ...

It is not currently possible to connect one USB-C host to another USB-C host. “Cables” that permit such a function will likely exist in the future, and they can handle power distribution however they want to. I put cables in quote because they will contain active electronics—they have to be actual devices if they’ll support connecting hosts to hosts. They ...

Shamelessly plagiarizing USB Cable Length Limitations And How To Break Them from yourcablestore.com (they're trying to sell you stuff anyway; like the shorter cable you need or a good powered hub): USB 2.0 The 2.0 specification limits the length of a cable between USB 2.0 devices (Full Speed or Hi-Speed) to 5 meters (or about 16 feet and 5 inches).

First that is only 100MB that you are writing. The disk and controller also have a cache that you aren't dropping, so you need a bigger test to make sure those caches aren't corrupting the results.

This doesn’t make sense to me. Is there any reason for this? I noticed this as well when I upgraded my Mac Mini to a model with USB 3.0 ports on it; my older USB 2.0 drives would copy data noticeably faster. The logic I believe is not all USB 2.0 controllers are the same. The way I understand it, USB 2.0 speed is spec’ed to be a max speed; not a ...

I've made a similar case mod few years ago. You can start with a USB bracket like this one: Note that it's simply a cable screwed to a bracket. Get one with port distance similar to this on original board. You may need to file the case a little bit so that ports aren't covered with plastic. Then simply unscrew the cable, glue it to the case and connect ...
