Hi Geoffrey,

Thanks for posting your question here! The Plugable UD-3000 has the DisplayLink DL-3700 chipset inside. All our USB graphics products also have a DisplayLink chipsets inside and use the DisplayLink drivers.

If Windows Update is turned on and you have Internet connectivity when the Plugable UD-3000 is connected to your laptop for the first time, then the drivers would automatically be downloaded and installed on the system.

If Windows Update is turned off or the laptop does not have Internet connectivity when the Plugable UD-3000 is connected to the laptop for the first time, then you would have to manually download and install the drivers.

You can download and install the drivers for the Plugable UD-3000 or any of our USB 3.0 Graphics Adapters from http://plugable.com/drivers/displayli…

Hope the above information helps! If you need any additional information, please do feel free to shoot us an email at support@plugable.com. We are here to help!

Geoffrey,

We currently do not recommend using the Plugable UD-3000 or any of our USB Graphics products with Windows 8. Here is the link to our post that gives more details as to why: http://plugable.com/2012/10/27/window…

Here are links to a couple of other posts on this topic:

Although DisplayLink is working to resolve the most serious Windows 8 issues (other than DRM video playback), we can’t really specify a time-frame. If you are interested, we can put you on the DisplayLink Windows 8 notification list and notify you when these driver issues clear up and we begin recommending Windows 8 with our hardware.

Just shoot us an email at support@plugable.com and let us know if you would like to be put on the notification list. We would be glad to do it.

Regards,
Roze

Thanks!
