Why does the card sometimes lose its connection when I connect a device to it?

Try connecting it to the power cable supplied as described in the manual. If this does not help, Windows' power saving function on the PCI-E port may have been enabled. If this is the case, it must be disabled.

I inserted the CD into my CD drive and entered the driver path from the manual, but I get an error message.

Unfortunately, we had a production where the driver path on the CD and manual do not match. You should use this path: D:\RENESAS-USB3-Host-Driver-30160-setup.exe

Why don't you have a Windows 10 driver available for download?

The card installs automatically in Windows 10 without a manual driver installation.
