just got it this morning, can anyone tell me how to reach usb 3.0 speed?
Using a computer with a USB 3.0 port perhaps?
Other than that, nothing.
It also depends on what Mac you have, as a Mac Pro allows PCI-Express cards and the MPB 17" supports ExpressCard /34 cards.
But I don't know if Mac OS X supports USB 3.0.
Maybe MRoogle might help you with that.
Or more information from your side.
i plug in WD's USB 3.0 host card, but nothing shows up. I could only use MacPro's builtin usb 2.0 port. do I need driver for the host card?
Were there no drivers with the hostcard on a CD?
Looking at the WDC support site, the HDD is formatted with the NT file system (NTFS) so in order to use it, you have to format it with HFS+ (Mac OS Extended) via Disk Utility, so you can at least use it via USB 2.0.
Information is out there, it seems there are no Mac OS X drivers or support yet.
The USB on my Mac Pro is a bit flaky and am going to get a USB card to help things out, but since it's backwards compatible, I thought I'd get a 3.0. I take it then you've found no solution to get USB 3.0 in the last week. Correct?

It looks like Buffalo's card doesn't work with OS X yet.
And here is the main part of that article that is of interest...
