    Default Elgato HD60 S Capture Card, part 2

    So, I'd been having no end of problems trying to get my capture card set up. I've almost solved them, but the Game Capture HD software says it needs to be connected to a USB 3.0 port to work. It would appear that all the ports on my PC are USB 2.0...so how can I change this situation? Like, add a 3.0 port or adapt one of the 2.0 ports to 3.0, somehow.

    You can add USB 3 ports to your computer, but you'll need an open PCI-e slot on your motherboard. If you don't have either PCI-e slots nor native USB 3 support on the motherboard, then you'll need a much more expensive upgrade to the whole computer.

    Okay so...this situation has gotten at least five times weirder, and now I'm not sure this forum can help me and I'll have to call Elgato tech support tomorrow. Apparently I DO have USB 3.0 but the card THINKS I don't, or something? The screenshot linked is from the relevant portion of my Device Manager...

    Wtf?

    Which USB port are you plugging it into?
    I have my own TV show featuring local musicians performing live. YouTube page with full episodes and outtake clips here.
    I also have another YouTube page with local live music clips I've filmed on my own.
    Then there is my gaming YouTube page with Kerbal Space Program, Minecraft, and others.
    Finally, I stream on Twitch, mostly Kerbal Space Program and Minecraft.

    Do you know what a USB 3.0 port looks like? Many computers have a mix of 3.0 and 2.0 ports, so you may have to hunt for it.

    It's also possible, but unlikely, that your motherboard has a USB 3.0 controller that isn't connected to anything. In that case, you'd need a USB 3.0 front panel or back panel with a built in 20 pin motherboard header cable to plug into the host controller on your motherboard.
