T510 + Mini Dock Plus Series 3 with USB 3.0 170W - USB 3.0 works as USB 2.0

2019-01-30, 9:43 AM

Hi all,

I have Lenovo T510 plugged into ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus Series 3 with USB 3.0 170W. The problem I have USB 3.0 port on the dock (blue one) works as USB 2.0. The laptop port works fine. I am checking it by plugging mobile HDD - when the HDD is plugged into the blue port on the dock station Windows (7, 64-bit - latest BIOS update) complains 'Device can perform faster'.


Using laptop's port (USB 3.0 Express Card) doesnt trigger the message, it's work fine (USB 3.0 protocol - blue led on case).


Some suggestions?
