Update to the update 09/16/2013
The replacement circuit board did not work in this Windows 8 computer where it worked before. I tried it on another and it did the same thing with the old board. I tried it on a Windows 7 computer just to be sure after reading a post below,and the new circuit board worked on the Win 7 machine.
I brought it back to the Win 8 machine and same error again. Reading a previous post that said the rest were inexperienced just reload the drivers? I checked and uninstalled and let windows reinstall on restart and no luck. Went to the Acer website and downloaded the driver but, unlike my HP which did need an updated newer driver last year to work correctly, this Acer had no newer drivers. I downloaded it anyway and ran it. The Orico started working again. I switched out the circuit board with the old one and it still would not work but then the new one still did. Apparently the failing one corrupted the driver and the Win 8 USB 3 drivers needed to be reloaded which really makes no sense.
My thanks to AcIDc0r3 below as his reload idea did work. Being a tech for years it absolutely makes no sense that it should work one minute and then fail the next however. I could understand if it failed on first try. I amended my rating and commend the Orico customer service person Yuki for getting the part to me. Now I just hope it does not fail again.
