Plugged in my external hard drive for the first time and computer crashed. The plug is a USB 2.0, while the hole is USB 3.0. The external hard drive is a western digital caviar blue 500GB encased in a Rosewill external case, which I had sitting at a corner for several years. The Rosewill external case does not have a ground plug for its power cord. It just shut down automatically. I thought I saw a spark.
My motherboard: GIGABYTE G1.Sniper Z87
PSU: XFX 650W
The computer is fine, I am using it right now. But I am wondering if anyone out there might know what is possibly happening so I can take the necessary precautions next time and hopefully solve the problem
