Hi all. I've just built a new pc and everything seems to have gone swimmingly so far, until I plugged a USB 3.0 hard drive into one of the two USB 3.0 ports on the front of the machine.
I hear the noise of the hard drive being recognised by Windows 8.1, then again after a few seconds and repeats until i remove the drive. I noticed in My Computer the drive letter appearing and disappearing.
I then plugged the same HDD into a USB 2.0 port alongside the problematic 3.0 ones (the front of the PC has 4x USB ports) and they all recognised and mounted the drive ok.
I plugged the same HDD into a USB 3.0 port at the rear of the pc and again, mounted fine.
I then plugged an iPhone into the problematic USB 3.0 ports and it mounted fine, as did a USB 3.0 Stick.
Finally I plugged in a USB 2.0 HDD into the problem ports and it mounted fine.
So it seems one particular drive has an issue with 2 x USB 3.0 ports that I cant replicate with other ports, or hardware I've tried?
