Package Contents
• Plug-in card
• Short slot cover for fl at computer cases
• CD with driver
• Operating Instructions
• Intended for installation in a PCI Express slot
• Two internal USB 3.0 ports (1), backwards
compatible with USB 2.0/1.1 (Port suitable for
connection cable, e. g. for USB 3.0 front con-
nection on a PC case)
• SATA power connection (2)
• Slot cover (3), replaceable by short slot cover
for installing the plug-in card in a fl at compu-
ter case
If you do not have the expertise to perform the installation, please arrange for
the installation to be carried out by SUITABLY QUALIFIED PERSONNEL or a
suitable specialist shop.
Incorrect installation can cause damage to the plug-in card and also to your
computer and all connected devices.
Caution, lethal hazard!
Switch off the computer in which the plug-in card is to be installed and discon-
nect all devices from the mains voltage by removing the plugs from the mains
socket! Just turning off at the on/off switch is not enough!
• Open your computer's case and carefully remove the cover.
• Locate a free PCI Express slot, remove the corresponding slot cover and insert the card
into the slot. Screw in the plug-in card fi rmly, check that it is positioned correctly in the PCI
Express slot!
To install the plug-in card in a fl at computer case, a low-profi le slot cover is enclosed.
Remove the long slot bracket from the plug-in card and then install the short, low-
profi le, slot bracket.
• Connect an appropriate power connection on your PC power adapter to the SATA power
connection on the plug-in card. Pay attention to the connector's correct orientation and do
not use any force.
If the power connection on the plug-in card is not connected to the PC power
adapter, any connected USB devices will not function!
• Connect the internal multi-pin connector (see illustration above, position 1) to the USB 3.0
ports on your PC case (e.g. USB 3.0 front connections). Pay attention to the plug's correct

• If necessary, secure all the cables with cable ties, so they cannot obstruct your computer's
• Close the computer housing.
• Connect your computer and monitor to the mains voltage and switch on all devices.
• If your computer does not start correctly, switch it off immediately and check all the settings
and cable connections.
Before opening the computer again, it must be disconnected from the mains
voltage again, see above!
Driver installation
• After Windows has started, it automatically recognises the plug-in card as new hardware.
Cancel the automatic hardware recognition.
• Place the enclosed CD into an appropriate drive on your computer.
• Start the CD's installation software ("setup.exe"), in the folder "USB3.0 Host \ NEC", and fol-
low all of the software's instructions.
It might be necessary to restart Windows, before the USB 3.0 ports on the plug-in
card function properly.
Connecting USB devices
The SATA power supply on the plug-in card must be connected to an appropriate
connector on your PC's mains supply.
Otherwise, the USB devices connected to the plug-in card will not be recognised
• USB 2.0/1.1 devices
It is possible, of course, to operate all "old" USB 2.0/1.1 devices with a USB 3.0 port. Simply
connect the USB device to one of the four USB ports on the plug-in card.
Use conventional USB 2.0/1.1 connection cables to connect the devices.
Normally, USB 2.0/1.1 devices are not, or only slightly, faster when operated on a USB 3.0
However, if the USB 2.0 controller on the motherboard works relatively slowly it is possible,
for example, that USB 2.0 hard disks could transfer data faster via a USB 3.0 port on the
plug-in card.
• USB 3.0 devices
In order to connect a USB 3.0 device, a USB 3.0 cable is necessary. At fi rst glance, the USB-A
plug looks similar to a USB2.0/1.1 plug, however, it has additional internal connector pins.
The USB-B plug on a USB 3.0 cable, however, has a different shape.
A USB 3.0 hard disk enclosure can also be operated on a USB 3.0/2.0/1.1 port via a conven-
tional USB 2.0/1.1 cable. However, a faster data transfer is not possible.
In order to use the fast data transfer of USB3.0, not only a USB3.0 controller is necessary but
also a USB3.0 device and an appropriate USB3.0 cable.
USB 3.0 provides a theoretical data transfer of 5 GBit (approx. 600 MByte/s). The transfer
speed in practice depends, however, on the devices involved in the data transfer (internal
and external hard disk), the type of data (many small fi les or few large fi les) and many other
