Rather, the contrary. Most otherwise troublesome USB 1.x/2 devices worked like a charme on USB 3 ports.

Edit: The Intel USB3 controllers are or were poor, I recall.
Intel USB (2/3) was always the fastest and most reliable. Be it drives or SDR (software defined radio) Intel controllers always provide fastest speeds.
There are sketchy vendors like Jmicron where depending on firmware your device will work on intel or NEC 😀 https://goughlui.com/2015/11/01/review-orico- … 9558ru3-part-2/

incompetent device manufacturers shipping garbage unable to work behind USB hub?Jo22 wrote on 2022-10-23, 18:11:
Notebooks and PCs with USB3 integrated into intel chipsets have issues booting Windows XP/Vista/7 Setup from USB pen drives. Unless they still have a dedicated USB 2.0 port left.
how? USB 2.0 pins in USB 3.0 port are connected to USB 2.0 hostcandle_86 wrote on 2022-10-23, 19:55:

and Earned in Blood use securerom, they don't work right in Windows 7 even unless you buy the GOG or Steam versions that no longer have the DRM, but the disk version good luck, basically anything with securerom won't work right on Windows 7 and newer as it predates the OS, it will work in Vista though.

you can make it work but it has issues. These are just some of the use cases.
"you can make it work but it has issues" is how I would describe trying to run XP in general 😉
I dunno what you've run into but I have no issues with XP it's still rock solid stable if your using the right hardware, I've got on 4 computers right now, the newest is my Phneom II X4 955 with an HD 4850 and 4gb DDR3 1600, its rock solid stable.
