Gen 3 won't mount (solved)

RE: Gen 3 won't mount (solved)
i am having the same problem and just got off with "technical support". I agree their customer support is terrible. He thought it was the cable and wanted me to go out and buy a new cable to rule it out! If they knew what they were doing, they would send a new one. Now he's just blaming my usb 3 drivers not being up to date. of course they are and when i told him that, he said to call microsoft about the usb 3 port. it was working with the usb 3 port yesterday though and he couldn't explain it. I'm going to see how finicky this thing is for the next few days and then it's going back!

I found an even newer (and working!) version directly from Intel. So my lesson learned here is that I can't necessarily trust Microsoft or Dell to identify or provide the latest drivers.

I have a Dell XPS 8300 (shipped 2012) and I don't believe it had USB 3, so I have an add-on card that does. When I plug in my Samsung Galaxy S5 into that card's ports, it confirms connecting at USB3, but when I plug in my Drobo Gen3, it doesn't even connect at all. When I plug the Drobo into another on-board port, it connects at USB2. I'm using the Drobo-supplied cable. I have checked drivers as best I can and all seem up to date.

Intel 6 Series /C200 Series USB Enhanced Host Controller version
Via USB 3 Root Hub
VIA USB eXtensible Host Controller version 6.1.7600.1803
