Yes, a compatible driver is required for USB 3.0 SuperSpeed products such as Flash Drives and Card Readers. This should be included by the manufacturer of the PC or laptop, motherboard or add-in (PCI) card that has the USB 3.0 ports.
The Microsoft USB Mass Storage Class Device driver supplied with Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000/Me for USB 2.0 currently has not been updated to take account of USB 3.0. It should work in most cases but may provide limited speed performance.
Windows 8 operating system and above have native USB 3.0 support.
