The cause was a cold mechanical solder joint on the USB socket on the internal board. The photos show this faulty joint-- the solder should be smooth and glassy, and wick to the metal surfaces like water climbing the walls of a glass. Instead you can see it is pulling away from the metal surfaces like water on wax. This makes for a physically weak joint that fails after the usb cable is moved/wiggled a little bit, and ultimately a failure of all the tiny solder joints that carry the actual data. After fixing this (not something a typical user has the tools to do) it works great.I even used it to read the photos of itself to post to this review. Too bad I can't recommend it to anyone without a solder re-work station.
Using the Canon EOS camera I oftenly use many CF cards on a shoot and for long shootings I needed a 3.0 card reader for quick file transfert. This reader worked well for the first 3 months. Then I thought I had a problem with my camera since the photos seemed corrupted when viewing the contents of the card, I was afraid I had lost several shots, only to discover that when the unit was connected to the USB 2.0 port it worked ok and I could see all the pictures in the folder. This issue occured with my Sony laptop using Windows 8 pro 64 bits as well as my power station using Win 7 pro 64 bits. I wrote a ticket to Verbatim recently and am waiting to see what advice they will give me. But I'm afraid the unit is dead. This may just be a single case though.
