Windows 10 x64 1511 and up to date
Rosewill USB 3/eSATA external hard drive enclosure ... new
2Tb Western Digital Black mounted in the enclosure ... new
Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 ... new
Can not copy files to the HDD mounted in the enclosure.
HOW THE PROBLEM PRESENTS
*USB 3: The enclosure is detected by Windows as a SCSI drive. When file transfer starts ... a few files will be copied to the enclosure ... but then it hangs ... and then Windows is no longer able to detect it. During the file transfer the HDD activity light on the enclosure flashes on and off ... when file transfer hangs the HDD activity light stops flashing and remains lit.
*USB 2: The enclosure is not detected at all by Windows.
*eSATA: Same behavior as USB 3
WHAT I'VE TRIED
I have verified the HDD is good.
I can mount the HDD in a USB 2 enclosure and transfer files just fine.
Have tried all USB ports with the same results.
Have disabled USB Selective Suspend ... (I use the High Performance Power Plan)
Have unticked "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" for all USB controllers
No little yellow triangles in Device Manager
Have tried 2 of the USB 3/eSATA enclosures ... both new ...
Contacted Rosewill tech support ... no help there ...
Beats me ... since it's happened with 2 new enclosures my hunch is that it's a configuration problem ... but for the life of me I dunno what to check next.
If anybody can help I'd sure appreciate it!
