What is your motherboard model? | Report abuse popatim Storage Expert August 21, 2012 12:19:50 AM Yes Win7 would need you to load drivers for the usb3 chipset as it doesnt support USB3 natively. You should be able to see it in Device manager. Just because your case has usb3 ports doesnt mean they're connected to anything. I'm afraid you'll need to open the case and check that. as a test you can plug the Sandisk drive into a usb2 port and it should still work, just at reduced speeds. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>USB 3.0 With Windows 7> Related ressources: ForumInstalling Windows 7 from bootable 2.0 USB by 3.0 USB port ForumMac Keyboard on Windows 7 PC / USB 3.0 ForumWindows 7 Installation from USB 3.0 Stick ForumWindows 8 and Renesas USB 3.0 ForumUSB 3.0 ports not recognized by windows 8 ForumWindows 8 usb 3.0 ports ForumUSB 3.0 problem in Windows XP ForumWindows not seeing my usb 3.0 drive upon boot ForumBiostar P35D2-A 7 motherboard and USB 3.0 ForumUSB 3.0 not working Asus P 7 P55D-E PRO ?
