725 USB 2.0 Over Thunderbolt Patch for Qio/Qio E3 1.1Jun-17-2013
Operating System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.8.5+
File Name: dskcd-usbtbml-11.dmg
File Size: 35.5 KB
Description: This patch restores USB 2.0 functionality through Thunderbolt under OS X 10.8.5 and 10.9.5 for Qio and Qio E3 users.

Notes:
Qio and Qio E3 support USB 2.0 through the ExpressCard (SxS) slots' USB interfaces. With the release of OS X 10.8.2, Apple disabled USB 2.0 drivers over Thunderbolt. This patch removes that limitation so that USB 2.0 will work through Thunderbolt. This will affect you only if you are connecting your Qio or Qio E3 through an Echo ExpressCard Thunderbolt adapter or Echo Express Expansion Chassis for PCIe Cards. (Beginning with OS X 10.10, Apple no longer permitted driver patches.)

This patch will only run on 10.8.5 and 10.9.5, and you should download this under the following conditions:
1) You have a Qio or Qio E3
2) You are connecting the Qio over Thunderbolt (or will do so in the future)
3) You need USB 2.0 support over the Qio. For example, if you need to use a multi-format memory card reader like the one included with the Qio, you need USB 2.0 support.

600 Qio Firmware Updater (OS X) 2.0.1Jun-13-2013
642 Qio Serial ROM Flasher (OS X) 1.0Feb-15-2012
Operating System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.6.8+
File Name: QioFlasherGUI.dmg
File Size: 395.0 KB
This software updates the serial ROMs on revisions A - G Qio pro media readers (part numbers QIO-E34 and QIO-PCIE). This is not required for revision H and later Qios.
Note: This software must be used along with the Qio Firmware Updater (OS X) to enable Windows-compatibility.

Usage Notes
• The application "QioFlasherGUI" included in the disk image that you download must be copied to your computer, preferably the desktop (for easy access), and then run from that location. You may safely delete the application after the serial ROM update is complete.
• When the application instructs you to "update the serial ROM", you must click the drop-down menu and select "PC-compatible", even if you do not intend to use the Qio on a PC.
