  1. Lack of USB3.0 support should not be the issue here.

    Did you try installing the drives encryption/password protection?

    Does the drive show in My Computer?

    Does the drive show in disk management (right click my computer -> manage -> disk management)

    does the drive need to be initialized?

    Does the drive need a drive letter?

    Does the drive have a partition?
