Does USB 3.0 Turbo even work?

6 posts in this topic

I have a 32Gb thumb drive which is the 3.0 Kingston datatraveler G3 100 plugged in to a 3.0 port on my system.I set the drive size in USB 3.0 Turbo from 29 Gb's to anywhere under that as my system shows my thumb drive as 29.2 Gb's.I click the USB button and nothing happens as I can continuously keep clicking it[As though its not engaged].

Now the USB configuration window shows my thumb drive highlighted in blue,I click next and it says "dimmdrive is able to use the selected USB drive" So I click finish and go back to games tab on  dimmdrive to see farcry 4 or deadrising 3 both games from low 30 - 40 Gb's wont engage and a pop-up saying "the USB device you have selected has dimmdrive app's on it that are currently active" even after I re-format the thumb drive with nothing on it. I have tried numerous combinations of attempts like unclicking auto -load or synchronizing boxe's as well as changing drive letter..I need special help as I feel like a retard here beating a dead horse...........

I have Steam's version of Dimmdrive 2.0.9

There is a bug (or feature?) in Windows 8 that is making USB disks shows up as actual hard drives instead.  Do you know if yours is doing this?  I know Sandisk Extreme cards have this problem.

thanx for replying....Ill wait for the fix,perhaps you can keep me abreast as to when or if that happens.


No,Win8 Pro [64] has always shown my drive's as they are(no sandisk here)

Also just for shits and giggles I'm going to purchase two more thumb drives of reputable names above 32 Gb's

and look into this a bit deeper.I will keep you abreast.


Really would of looked forward to playin some triple A games.

The future will soon be throwing games over 32 Gb's at the public.

I'm sure we'll be seeing that sometime soon in 2015



Dimmdrive is a blessing so would USB 3.0 Turbo if it worked
