I finally had a chance to play a bit today with my new ASI1600, filter wheel and SGP. As its during the day and clouded over, I couldn't actually image anything but I think its now set up ok with one exception. The ASI1600 ASCOM shows usb2 as my USB speed. I've tried a USB3 hub and directly connecting to the computer. My device manager shows my root as USB3. I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting and closing and opening SGP. Nothing makes a difference - it stays at USB2. I've left all the other settings on their defaults. What am I missing? Thanks for any help.
USB2/USB3 with ASI1600

Same thing similar happened to me with ASI120MC-S USB3.0 camera. Sometimes when I connect from laptop's USB 3.0 port with USB 3.0 cable to the camera, it would show that it's running at USB 2.0 speed. I would have to close the software (SGP or Firecapture), uplug/replug USB 3.0 from camera or laptop and restart software and repeat this until it finally shows that USB 3.0 speed is running.
It's hard to determine if the fault comes from camera, laptop, USB 3.0 cable or camera's driver (native or ASCOM).
In your case, if you could never get USB 3.0 speed running, then it's more likely the fault may be in the camera.
