Hi Thomas,

Thanks for contacting us! Yes, unfortunately, the Toshiba Satellite U205 has an older CardBus slot, which is not compatible with the newer (and faster) ExpressCard standard. To support a USB 3.0 host controller, the performance and characteristics of the newer ExpressCard are required. So unfortunately, I don’t think there will be a way to upgrade this laptop to USB 3.0. You can read some more background on ExpressCard and CardBus here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ExpressCard

We never want customers stuck with hardware. If you’re within the 30 day window, we offer no-hassle returns through Amazon. Just visit http://www.amazon.com/gp/css/returns/…

If you’re after the 30 day window, just email support@plugable with your Amazon order number.

Our apologies we don’t have a happier answer, but thank you for contacting us to confirm!
