I'm having problems trying to get my SSD to register in the USB 3.0 port. I was being stupid and I accidentally stepped on the cord a weird way yesterday and now it won't work in that port. When I plug it into the other 2.0 ports, it works fine (although not as fast as the 3.0). I checked other hard drives in the 3.0 port and they operate normally, so I don't think the port itself is broken. I'm not really sure, though.
If it matters, I'm running Windows 7. I really hope I didn't ruin the hardware, but I feel like that's probably what happened. I checked in Device Manager and it says the 3.0 works fine.
Is this a fixable issue, or will I just have to get a new cord? I didn't step on the SSD itself, so I guess that's good. :/
Thank you very much for all assistance!
