4.0 out of 5 stars Lexar Pro USB 3.0 Dual Slot Reader - Firmware upgrade., 20 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lexar Professional Multi-Card Dual Slot USB 3.0 (500 MB/s) Memory Card Reader - Black (Accessory)
I initially had problems connecting the reader to USB 2 or USB 3 interfaces on my Windows 7 64 bit system. The device was not recognised properly in device manager and inserting a card (Silicon Power 8GB SDHC Cat 10) caused the system to hang. Ironically it worked fine connected to USB 2 on my Windows 7 32 bit netbook. Lexar have released a firmware update (Feb 2012 - UDMA7 firmware upgrade for Windows 7, Vista and XP). I have applied this to the card reader and the device now works perfectly.

I can also confirm it is supplied with a 1m black USB 3 cable.

You get a 'like' from me just for confirming the cable comes with it! I've been looking for that on the page/photos/other reviews! Thanks.

Mine arrived today with NO cable! It arrived in sealed, pristine condition. Box said "contains USB cable" . But it didn't. Have returned and asked for a replacement.

14th September Incredibly fast replacement sent before Amazon had even received the return, and new one has USB lead!

Thanks for the information will apply this when I get it. Have noticed one very odd thing on Amazon they say "2 year Guarantee" Lexar state 5years has any body else noticed this?

Thanks for mentioning issues with 64 bit systems, and the solution with this card reader. I find myself with an expensive 7 year old Canon SLR which Canon find is just too difficult for them to supply 64 bit drivers. Aaagh! So I need a Compact Flash card reader which will work.
