    Why does a "Windows" PC have to be like an Apple? In the audio/recording studio world there are a few Thunderbolt I/O devices but the majority are USB 2.0 devices or even 1394 (Firewire). The bandwidth of a USB 2.0 exceeds the bandwidth requirement of most recording interface devices. Some do not even work with a USB 3.0 port (the device(s) is the issue not the 3.0 port).

    I realize things will evolve, and "managing change" is not an issue for me, having been in commercial networking and telecommunications and help desk since 1973. But, I just don't see "follow Apple" (and I have an iPhone).

  3. Windows 10 is not recognizing a Thunderbolt 2 device

    Hi!

    I've just bought a NAS (QNAP TVS-1282T) and a PC with the motherboard Gigabyte GA-X99-Designare EX.

    The motherboard supports Thunderbolt 3 via USB Type-C connector and the NAS is Thunderbolt 2.

    Once i connect the NAS via Thunderbolt 2 cable into the USB Type C port with this

    Startech adapter
    i get this message: "the last usb device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and windows doesn't recognize it".

    If i go to the device manager in Windows i see that under "USB Device (Universal Serial Bus)" there is a "Billboard Device" reporting an error with Code 10. (screenshot
    here
    )

    (it's in italian. A literal translation would be: Impossible to start the device (Code 10). You specified an unexisting device)

    I tried to click on it and automatically look for drivers, but it says that the device drivers are up to date.

    The NAS works for sure, because if i connect it via thunderbolt on my girlfriend macbook it works.

    So, how can i make this work via Thunderbolt 2 on my Windows PC?

    I've spent 13K€ on this setup (NAS + PC), you can imagine i cannot work without Thunderbolt!

    Additional details:

    - Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X99-Designare EX. Bios Version F3. All drivers installed. It supports Thunderbolt 3

    - Windows 10 Version 1511, Build OS 10586.633

    - Gigabyte tech support said a Thunderbolt 2 device would work with this Motherboard using that adapter. I've asked them before buying all this stuff

    Thanks for your help

    Welcome to the USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 Era

    Windows 10 is not recognizing a Thunderbolt 2 device

    They dont come with the flashTBT_100.exe file as of the newest downloads for the Gigabyte GA-X99-Designare EX motherboards. I have looked at other thunderbolt drivers and cant find it there either. Basically my USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 port on my computer reads
    as a USB-C port with card readers and the like, but my thunderbolt 3 devices it wont read. I just downloaded and installed v 16.1.47.275 of the thunderbolt software from Gigabyte. Also there are no instructions in the .zip (link

    here
    )

    I only get the "try improving USB Connection" message or "does not recognize USB device" and I can go no further.

    I will try the unplug power source for 30 seconds, but as this is a custom build and I'm pretty sure I've done that already multiple times, I dont hold out much hope

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated as I bought this board specifically for the TB 3 capabilities for my line of work.

    Thanks!
