Hi Chris, Thanks for the response. Just to be sure, I plan on ordering one or two of the Lexar Dual Card readers today.
Yes, I understand USB3 is backward compatible with USB2 devices, but the question is whether I still need the second Lexar Dual Card Reader to be able to read the UDMA 7 cards, even at USB2 speeds. My current card readers don't seem to like them.
At least until I get the new readers, I will download directly from the camera using the USB3 cable. There was a time when I wasn't positive my system was recognizing the USB3 adapter card, but with the XQD card and reader working at full speed, I know that's not the problem. I also eliminated the four port USB3 hub and connected direct to the adapter card in the tests.
Files from my XQD card and reader seem to fly onto the system, but I know the D4 files are much smaller. However, Windows lets me click on the Details drop down and I can see the actual transfer speed when coming off the card readers. I am not sure why the same Details drop down is not available when reading directly from the camera.
