_Hello forum, I lately bought a MacBook Pro Retina and installed Win 7 on Bootcamp. The "USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver" software pack doesn't really work well and gave me some trouble. I have tried downloading the latest "Intel(R)_USB_3.0_eXtensible_Host_Controller_Driver.zip" from the website and still the same.
My chipset info:
When "USB 3.0 eXtensible" software package is installed by running "Setup.exe": (quite a bunch of drivers and services is installed)
After uninstalling "USB 3.0 eXtensible", and reinstalling NOT by "Setup.exe", but via devmgmt.msc and "Update Driver Software..." directly from the folder: "Intel(R)_USB_3.0_eXtensible_Host_Controller_Driver\Drivers\Win7", things are a lot better. VMware USB works like a charm and the Jmicron USB HDD Enclosure is recognized properly. However, still some minor issues exist:
I wonder if anyone has seen the same and any help to address these problems are greatly appreciated.
I found the USB driver from the HP website. Extract the files from the executable with Winrar and it worked perfectly.
I hope it has helped you
Encontrei o driver USB no site da HP. Extraí os arquivos do executável com o Winrar e funcionou perfeitamente.
Espero que tenha te ajudado
It might be a bit late but here's a response for future googlers:
Long story short, if using the above drivers fail, it's probably because you've previously ran the Intel xHCI driver setup.exe at least once in the past. This installs a iusb3mon.exe - as the name states, it's a USB monitoring tool which inadvertently has an exclusive lock on your USB device, and this stops VMWare from accessing the device at the root level.
To fix that, UNINSTALL your Intel driver from Control Panel, and reboot your computer. Then use Device Manager to install the DRIVER FILES manually. For more info, please follow the link above. It has much more detailed instructions.
Hope this helps!
