In Topic: How to fix ASMedia USB 3.0 on El Capitan ?

If you have only ASMedia ports, that should work fine. If you've also got Intel native ports you might need a little extra work to get them all working.

Eventually, if you need more ports you can also buy a compatible PCIe expansion card such as https://www.amazon.c...=orico usb pcie


I bought one of those a while ago and it works great.

You don't need GenericUSBXHCI nor Caldigit... those kexts are NOT compatible with 10.11+... GenericUSBXHCI kind of sorta works but is very unstable and I doubt Caldigit works at all.

If you're on 10.11.6, the vanilla OSX kext is enough. You probably just need to put the proper devices in the DSDT if it doesn't work right away (look up the DSDT injection guide using lspci)


Attached is proof.

I have a 1042a controller on my motherboard and the ports don't really work, one in a blue moon the system will boot up showing something attached to one of these ports but I'm a bit of a noob and no idea how to try to fix. 


Is your device ID 1B21:1142? that's the exact identifier of my working chip.

Are you using 10.11.6 or better (I assume it also works in Sierra, though I haven't really tried it)?


If both of those are "yes", then maybe you just need to add the ports to your DSDT. In my case, they are under EXCD since it's an expresscard, but as I reported previously, it is fully recognized by the native AppleUSBXHCIPCI driver (and in fact it works much better than it ever did with GenericUSBXHCI).

Why don't you try it first by installing web drivers on 10.11? AFAIK all cards that work with 10.11 should work with 10.12 as well. And if can you run without web driver, do it. Web driver will not improve anything, only make things worse. Use web driver only with cards that requre it (i.e. Maxwell)


BTW: and think twice before upgrading to Sierra. Imho it's not worth it and at least for me El Capitan worked better. And also Apple continued their way of crippling their apps (this time: Console.app - just like they did with Disk Utility in El Cap, i.e. app is much less useful after the update)


Actually, while it's true that the frontend Console app is now pretty horrible, you can still find pretty much any info you want (and I'd say have even more control over it) by using the "log" command, once you understand how to use it properly.

Do not inject Nvidia.

I wasn't. I already managed to get it fixed, with the DisableASPM thing, which is why I recommended it above to people who are experiencing the prolonged black screen issue. (I assume my case was an extreme version of that!)
