USB 3 devices are not Plug and Playing on my Macbook Pro.  Does anyone else have this problem?  Will Apple fix it?

    If you have a Core2 Duo processor, then your MacBook Pro only has USB 2.0.  If it is not detecting USB3.0 devices, I would check with the device manufacturer to verify that they support backwards compatibility to USB 2.0.  It could be that the devices don't support it, or that they are "faulty".  I have no issues with my Core2 Duo MacBook Pro 3,1 recognizing USB devices when they are connected, but since it is only USB 2.0, I only own a couple USB 3.0 devices and I have only connected them to it a few times.

    I've tried two different USB 3.0 devices and neither one PnP on my USB 2.0 bus, but they should.  I don't know if its the devices or the OS.  One device that won't PnP is an ainker 3.0 USB hub that has an external power supply.
