My ReadyNAS102 has two USB3 ports on the back. I have a USB3 harddrive which I would like to have plugged in permanently into one of these ports.
I have noticed that any USB2 devices plugged into either the USB2 or USB3 ports work fine. Also, the USB3 harddrive plugged into a USB2 port works fine. However, when I try to plug in the USB3 hardrive into a USB3 port, although it shows up in the list of devices in the client software, it doesn't seem to get recognised by the client computer (a desktop running Ubuntu 14.04).
I'm guessing that VirtualHere doesn't support devices connected using USB3. Whilst I understand that USB3 connection speeds are probably pointless over a LAN (the LAN being the likely speed bottleneck, not the USB connection), it does mean that I can't use the USB3 harddrive in the ReadyNAS102's two USB3 ports.
Is there anyway I can get my USB3 harddrive, connected to a USB3 port to work? As I say I just want it to work, I don't care about the USB3 speeds etc, so even if the connection to the VirtualHere Client was USB2, as long as I could access it, it is good for me.
Thanks again, for your help.
