    Got my Note 3 Yesterday and I noticed that when I plug it up to any of the USB 3.0 Ports on my PC which has Asus Sabertooth 990fx R1 board and Windows 8 it will charge but is not recognized and doesn't show up in drives folder but the phone shows the charging symbol at the top indicating it's charging. I have Kies 3 installed isn't that supposed to put the correct drivers in when you install it? I don't see any other drivers to install yet. Unless something is wrong with the Phone because my pc detects my usb 3.0 flash drive when it's plug up? :(

    Mine connects ok in to the blue USB 3.0 ports but my Windows 7 says this device can go faster if I plug it into a USB 3.0, which its in !!!! Transfers speeds are at USB 2.0 performance. Anybody know how to get USB 3.0 work with the Note 3 ???

    What I do to get it to play ball with USB 3.0 is to pull down the notifications menu when the device is connected and go into the menu behind 'Connected as a media device' where there are three choices, the bottom one starts up USB 3.0.

    That does help. There was some review that mentioned it, but it seems ridiculous that you'd need to manually enable a connection mode every time you use it. Maybe someone will release an app (or perhaps a Tasker profile) to set that mode automatically every time you connect to a USB 3.0 device.

    You can plug a keyboard in? Interesting.

    You'll need an MHL adapter (or something), but I've read that it works.

    :thinking:Ok in between working and playing with this problem I have found a few things I think lol... I had to reinstall my usb drivers now my 3.0 ports are working properly but now I think I still have to wait for a Windows 8 Driver for the phone I called Samsung they said they don't have a driver out for it yet hmmmmm.. So guess I'll ask if any of you are running windows 8? My wife's Laptop has Win 7 and 3.0 Port's and it works just like the above posters say it should and I can pull down the menu and have the options all of that but when I hook it up to my PC with Windows 8 nothing just a charging Icon no USB Icon at all.

    I also have Windows 8. The weird thing is it worked the first time I tried this. But, now all that happens when I plug it into the USB 3.0 ports is that it charges. WTF? Nothing comes up in the notification bar for me to choose any settings.
