PCI USB 3.0 repeated driver failure

I have a 4-port PCIe USB 3.0 add-in card. When I first got it I was able to install and use it with no problems. Every couple of weeks, though, the driver fails to load, most recently with the (Device Manager) message: “This device is disabled because the firmware of the device did not give it the required resources. (Code 29).” Last week I found and flashed the new firmware version, and the controller worked for about 5 days. On Monday it stopped again with the same message as above. When I try to run the USB 3.0 Host Controller Utility it tells me that no controller is found, so I can’t even check the firmware version. Firmware can’t revert to an older version on its own, can it? I’m a professional photographer and my backup drives are connected to this controller, so I need to get it running reliably or replace it with a controller that will.
