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?
