Had you used Apple's IO Tools You could have chosen the BT source and you wouldn't have had to physically disconnect the internal BT card.

I don't use an Apply Keyboard. I have a Logitech Gaming Keyboard that I really like. It's lighted, my reason for getting it, and with the Logitech software, I can launch programs from it.

Warning: KT4004 won't let you use CF cards

I purchased The inertek KT4004. It's working perfectly with my Kinsgton USB 3.0 card reader in the first few months since I mostly use SD cards until I purchased Canon 5D III that needs faster speed for raw recording. I purchased bunch of high speed CF cards.

Non of the CF cards I have can be used with KT4004, all cards mount and eject in loops. Other USB cards I purchased 2 ports generic NEC chip USB 3.0 cards can be working with CF reader in OSX 10.9 without any problems.

If you have CF card readers, might want to give it a try and help see if yours working with KT4004.

^^^^I have a 7D and don't use a card reader. I hook the camera up to the front USB 2.0 ports and go from there. I download to and open up my picts in Bridge.

you can still plug your Lexar into your USB 2.0 ports and transfer the raw files from your CF card. Correct?

Yes, the USB 2.0 port on my Mac Pro works. But KT4004 is not working with CF cards is disappointing.

I am using the reader from LEXAR connected to the KT4004 and it's working flawless so far...

Is it a Lexar reader? The first post summary says in the bullet list for the KT4004:
Quote:
Known to be incompatible with "Lexar Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader"
Other CF readers are known to work fine.

Well, that's interesting since another reader has reported they don't work.

This is part of why I gave up on the first post summary. Too many anecdotal problems here and there, and repeatedly being told what I "had" to say in the first post.

back when the LEXAR USB 3.0 reader came to market, it had lot's of problems on the newly released MacBooks sporting USB 3.0. LEXAR then released a firmware upgrade utility which solved these issues.

I have that reader as well, flashed to latest firmware, and it is still troublesome on my KT4004. Interestingly, I have disconnects with SD cards, not with CF cards. Go figure!

I am glad I kept the older USB 2.0 version of that reader which works flawlessly.
