My motherboard is a pretty new model with multiple USB 3.0 ports. I recently decided to get a better flash drive so I went for one with USB 3.0 to get the fast transfer speeds. The problem is that whenever I plug the flash drive in, Windows tells me, "this drive could be working faster if you plugged it into a USB 3.0 port". I know that I'm plugging my 3.0 drive into a 3.0 port. I've tried every 3.0 port on my computer and it always says this. How can my computer not know that it has USB 3.0 ports? Just to further prove my computer is treating the 3.0 ports like 2.0 ports, the transfer speeds are 2.0 slow (10 mb/s),
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H
Flash drive: Silicon Power 32GB USB 3.0
Thanks for your help.
