Hi! Are you using the latest version of driver booster? by the way my suggestion so far is to uninstall the old driver and install the , There is a possibility that there is a conflict. vbsmile.png


I tried your suggestion, still Device Manager shows "unknown device". I kept the download from Asus site and reinstalled ***.33.1 . All is fine again. There is no newer version at Asus for this motherboard and since it works great with .33.1 installed, I will set Driver Booster to ignore future versions of ASmedia USB3.1. Thanks for your suggestion.


Yes. I have the latest version of Driver Booster, Uninstaller, ASC Pro and MalwareFighter.


Due to this silly new PUP change by Malwarebytes, I decided to switch to MalwareFighter and tell anyone else who is a client to do the same thing if they have both ASC and MBAM installed.

After reinstalling 33.1 Windows Updates provided me with 38.1. I uninstalled 38.1 reinstalled from Download Backup 45.1 but it still is not compatible with the Device. I am simply sharing this particular problem with the forum just in case someone else has run into this issue with the Asus Z97-E mobo. I really like Driver Booster but one little incompatible driver out 25 that i's found is not a problem in the scheme of things.



Here is the screenie.
