    Works fine on the Asus USB Boost driver paired with NEC controller, its an issue with this older generic driver as it works under 10 UASP just fine.

    do you know of a usb to sata cable that doesn't house an ASM chipset that i can try?

    I'm actually not 100% sure if this is a 1051 tbh, the 55AA device id corresponds to 1051, 1053, 1151 and 1153E, the cable in question is Startech USB312SAT3CB

    Edit, its a 1351, Startech aren't too bright and didn't update the device info block so it reports as a 1051.

    1051 vs 1351 list a different usb version, 3.0 vs 3.1.

    My guess is the win8 driver implements scatter gather and doesn't provide a fallback to not using it when issues are encountered.

    I'm going to pick up a Sabrent EC-SS31,

    Turns out it has nothing to do with the adapter, its a compatibiilty issue with the NT6.2 XHCI and uPD720200 with firmware 3034 that doesn't occur with the uPD720201 or uPD720202 and likely not with uPD720200a FW 4021

    Final update just released:
    - Changed patching style, fewer code changes.
    - Now only signed with SHA-2 (previous release was also signed with publicly available SHA-1 signtool that will eventually be used to sign malware and have its certificate revoked).
    - Added vendor tags to device name. Example: USB xHCI Compliant Host Controller (Intel)
    - Dropped Vista support.
