    I recently had another thread talking about issues with a generic NEC USB3.0 card. I never did get it working, so I wound up selling that card and buying a Lacie card, unfortunately I'm still having issues. The only USB3.0 devices I have are WD MyBook Essentials external drives....So here's whats going on.

    Installed the most recent Lacie Drivers :

    Updated MyBook Firmware and installed WD Mac+Turbo Driver: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=125&lang=en

    The drive does not mount when connected to USB3.0 port. Nor does it show up in System Info or Disk Utilities.
    As soon as I turn the drive on my wireless Magic Mouse starts lagging horribly.
    When I connect the drive to a USB2.0 port it works fine.

    I called WD and they've decided to send me a new "correct" USB3.0 cable.
    I have three of the same drive which mean I have three cables and none of them worked.. :(

    Any help is appreciated.

    EDIT: Agh, I just called Lacie and they told me their PCIe card will only work with Lacie hard drives. :(
    Anyway around this?

    I decided to try Multibeast to see what version of the patched .Kext file it was using but unfortunately it was 1.0.10, so no improvement.


    Before I called Lacie I posted on their facebook page and they replied:
