    Patched AppleUSBXHCI

    S Second this request.....the older LaCie driver I patched back in the day, doesn't work on High Sierra anymore...

    USB 3 ports not working

    Will this work with ExpressCards based on the NEC u720200 chipset? i.e. as a replacement for PXHCD.kext?

    USB 3.0 Expresscard support

    Bump. ( Because it needs attention )
  4. Anyone get their USB 3.0 Expresscard to work with Mavericks? RE: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/236209-lacie-usb-30-drivers-are-here-for-os-x/?hl=pxhcd http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/284654-patched-lacie-usb-30-driver/?hl=pxhcd&do=findComment&comment=1875392 I'm running 10.8.5 but I'd like to upgrade to Mavericks. I'm just concerned I've read conflicting reports of it working or not. Anyone brave enough to venture through and get it up and running ?
  5. Has anyone gotten this to work in Mavericks ?
  6. What USB 3.0 HUB are you using in your system ? And which driver are you using ?
  7. Brilliant. Useless driver then. It doesn't seem like CalDigit, or any of the card manufacturers are interested in keeping up the drivers. You might think at some point they'd just put the code for the drivers out. It's not like they're going to be losing money if they're not supporting the cards, and frankly they'd be earning themselves the good will of the public because they've given people the opportunity to make something of the hardware.
  8. Does this driver support USB 3.0 hubs ( and by extension, external drives connected to the hub ) ? Anyone able to get that to run ?

    Patched AppleUSBXHCI from OS 10.8.2

    I mean, has anyone patched the 10.8.3 kext and released it. If it works at least with the u720200(a) chipsets, at least it'd be worth trying out. Also, since I haven't seen anyone SPECIFICALLY mention it......has anyone tried using a usb 3.0 hub connected to their USB 3.0 cards to see if you can plug in more than 1 external drive ? That's currently a limitation of the patched LaCie drivers, while they can see a USB 3.0 hub now, they won't enumerate drives connected to them.

    Patched LaCie USB 3.0 driver

    This is the patched 1.0.11 driver with the removed info.plist entry, just as in 1.0.10. While it DOES now see a root USB 3.0 HUB, it DOES NOT, however, see any drives attached to the HUB itself. Therefore, one step forward, 1/2 step back. It DOES generate more logging information ( which could prove useful to some ). At this point, perhaps once the Generic UHCI driver gets more stable, it might be worth it to switch to it, but I don't see LaCie updating this one much further, boys and girls. Enjoy.

    Patched AppleUSBXHCI from OS 10.8.2

    Has anyone performed any necessary patch for the releases 10.8.3 ?
  12. Can you please post a link to this patched KEXT from Apple ? Do you know if it support Hubs ? Did I read right somewhere on this thread...someone said that the LaCie 1.0.11 driver supposedly supports HUBS ? Can someone confirm that please ?
  13. Read through this thread...it's posted here as a ZIP. Here's the link, for the truly lazy.
  14. I didn't know they had updated their driver. I'll have to take a look to see what they've done. It's entirely possible they've modified the driver in some other way so as to make it a little more difficult to work around the drive lock. With the 1.0.10 driver they'd added that extra key in the info.plist that hadn't existed before, and now they may have added a check to validate against a certain vendor id ( if that's the case, then it'll be a tougher nut to crack, as it may require everyone to pull the vendor id for their specific card, and then put that key value into the the PCIMatchedFamily key in info.plist. The fact is tread carefully. Unless the 1.0.10 driver isn't working for you (and frankly, as long as you're simply hooking up a USB 3.0 drive to your "mac", should be be good), don't switch to the newer driver yet.
  15. The PXHCD KEXT was originally designed to support Mass Storage Devices.....(having come from a Mass Storage Device maker was a dead give-away). I think you're SOL with respect using a mouse off your USB 3.0 on this. Might I suggest you get a USB 2.0 Hub and connect it to that eSata/USB 2.0 port you have on your Elitebook, and plug the mouse in there ? Or conversely, since that notebook comes with Bluetooth, switching to a Bluetooth mouse.
