Are USB 3 cards compatiable with Java Script?

by alaskagram / December 15, 2012 7:04 AM PST

I have been told that I must turn off Java script in order to use video with USB 3.I edit video and have added some USB 3 external hard drives and I am getting a Vision tek USB 3 PCIe card so I can have the faster transfer speed. I have been told that I need to get an Adobe product (do not know which application) to subsitute for Java script as it will not work with video on USB 3.I use Win 7 home ultimate,CPU AMD T-1045 Hex core,EVGA GTS 450 gc..Is this true?

Sorry but I'd stop listening to that person.

I find such advice may be well meaning but something must have been lost in translation.

So without going into any discussion about the card compatibility with the PC, the answer to your first question is yes. The final question the answer is no.

You've been handed some probably well meaning advice but they've put you in the creek without a paddle.

If you want to start at the beginning maybe we can figure out what nutshell we are talking about.

USB 3 PCIe cards and Java Script
by alaskagram / December 17, 2012 9:32 AM PST

I was told that Java Script does not play well with Video data being transmitted over USB 3 from external drives.I was told that I have to turn it off and substitute an Adobe application.Sounded like hogwash to me but my first Visiontek USB 3 PCIe card was defective and gave me cause to wonder.My 2 USB 3 drives did not show up when I installed the card.I found an exclamation mark next to it in device mgr. with a code 10 error,could not start,then I started to get blue screens.I have a replacement card coming so I thought I would do some research to be ready.I know with motorcycles a friend will tell you to take to a mechanic when you have problems but a "buddy" will try to fix it for you.I also know that since the card was defective,or at least I was issued a refund by Tiger Direct,this may be a moot point,I just don't want to keep sending cards back because I don't know what I'm doing, if that is the case.

You called it. I agree.

I know that Dell lost a lot of time getting USB 3.0 working in many models. It's not working in all machines and it's not JAVA or Javascript related. It's hardware and the drivers.
