    This problem drove me crazy, until a came across the solution in another Forum...

    Before you enable USB 3.0, you need to 'see' the USB Flash Drive in Windows Explorer. To do that, right click 'My Computer', then left click Manage, and Disk Management. On the next screen, in the column headed by Volume, Layout, etc..., scroll (all the way) down until you see the graphical representation of your USB Flash Drive (it won't have a Drive Letter assigned). Right click it, and left-click 'Change Drive letter and paths'. Then, add a new drive letter, and click OK. You will then be able to see/use the Flash drive in Windows Explorer.
