There is USB3 support, if you have in mind USBPcap on Windows. But the documentation is not really good. In the TODO section of USBPcap's home page, there is a description of the problem and solution. The fact that it prints using
So you have to go to the command line, move to the directory where you have told the installer to put USBPcap, and run
After this, you can start Wireshark again. Either you’ll see one more USBPcapN interface in the list, or the one on which you’ve never captured anything before will “come alive”. Start the capture, insert your USB3.0 device and see the miracle happen.
The theory below is that USB3.0 is in fact a completely separate subsystem with its own root hub and its own electrical contacts on the connectors shared with the USB 1.1/2.0 root hub. So to capture a 3.0 device, you need to capture at a different USBPcapN interface than to capture a 2.0 device inserted to the same connector on your PC.
