I use T430s + ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus Series 3 with USB 3.0 – 90W for quite a while.
However, I always have a problem with the USB 3.0 port on the dock.
I can connect a USB 3.0 HDD to this port and achieve 100MB of transfer speed.
However, whenever I try to transfer large files like 4GB ISO file or using Windows Backup on my Windows 8/8.1, it will very soon fail and the USB 3.0 HDD will be disconnected.
The large file transfer or backup never succeed.
I can complete above tasks using T430s onboard USB 3.0 ports without any problem.
It is just the USB 3.0 port on the dock that does not do the job.
I contacted Lenovo Taiwan and they simply replace a new one for me.
The problem persists with the new dock.
Can anyone share some insights on this issue?
