How do I configure a faster USB 3.0 port after connecting a USB device to my Windows 7 laptop? It displays in taskbar that the device can run on a faster USB port with the fast ports listed.

The laptop may be less than USB 3.0 and so automatic configuration may not happen – can I do it manually?

      Thanks

      Pl note that the article is for speeding data transfer from usb storage device
      As per question :
      Would this process be valid for non-storage usb devices?

      If you optimise a USB device by way of cached memory then the device is accessed faster. What devices are you talking about?

      The device is USB sound adapter for connecting external speaker through speaker pins to usb port

      On connecting to laptop ( Presario CQ42 ) the sound output has been low compared to when connected to desktop directly with speaker pins

      And had seen following dialog box in Win 7 of laptop when device was connected : Your USB Composite device can perform faster if it is plugged into a hi-speed Port.
      The hubs shown in bold have free ports that can support the hi-speed USB device
      USB Root Hub - 8 ports
      USB Root Hub - 4 ports main titles both in bold and list of corresponding number of ports

      Below - Disconnect the USB Composite Device from it's current port and then connect it to one of the ports on a hub shown in bold type

    You often see similar messages in Windows when hooking USB 2.0 device to original USB 1.0 ports. In order to make it work at optimal speed all devices must be matched to the same port type. The message can be disabled as seen at http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/7972/disable-the-annoying-this-device-can-perform-faster-balloon-message-in-windows-7/ However it sometimes happens because of a faulty cable. I don't know what type of device you are using but you might try a new cable. Good luck.

    Hello,

    USB 3.0 is a physical state of a port; it is not something you can manually configure. The ports are distinguished from USB 2.0 ports by being lined with blue where you insert the USB stick.

    In order to get the speed benefits of the 3.0, both the port and the device must be rated for 3.0 already. It is not something you can change.

      Thanks

      Pl note there may have been errors in editing the question :

      After connecting the usb device the taskbar recommends to connect the device to a faster post from a list on its interface , of ports outlined under bold
      Does it mean hardware port or configuring the device on same port but through internal settings? Pl elaborate
