Hi all. I have a problem with my MSI z87-g45 mobo. The rear USB 3.0 ports are working fine for all devices, but the front ports on my case (corsair C70 Vengeance) are not working correctly for anything other than USB 3.0 devices.
Motherboard: MSI z87-g45
OS: windows 8 pro 64-bit
case: corsair C70 vengeance
-any USB 2.0 external hdd will show up and be readable/writeable, but won't show up and be ejectable through the system tray. (USB 3.0 devices work just fine).
-webcams will be detected when plugged in the first time, but then windows says there's a problem with the device, and it won't be detected anymore.
-downloaded and installed all mobo drivers through Live Update.
-flashed motherboard to current bios release (v. 1.3)
-uninstalled USB 3.0 host controller through device manager, and restarted computer.
-checked for new drivers through device manager.
I'm not sure what to do next, so I'd appreciate some advice. What stumps me is that the front USB 3.0 ports will communicate with USB 3.0 HDDs without a problem, and will partially work with USB 2.0 HDDs.
It kind of solved itself. There was a bios update sometime in September. I probably won't buy MSI again because I think things like this should never be an issue up to a year after release, but it's not like I had to RMA the thing. I guess it's a wash.
