I have been using a Seagate free agent goflex drive between windows and mac (NTFS) It has been working fine and now just is not working on usb3 port on the Windows machine. It still shows up on the USB2 ports. I really would like to keep using it on USB3 because it has large film files on it that I need to access.
Any advice greatly appreciated. There is about 800GB of data, so I really want to avoid having to copy all the files to another location and reformat the disc if possible.
Thanks for your help
More about :hard drive stopped working usb3 works usb2
Seems like either a driver or hardware issue (duh lol). Have you uninstalled/installed the USB3 hardware/driver via Device Manager? You may want to disconnect the drive first prior to performing said work.
Not sure what else to say.
Ok so I removed the drivers, plugged in the drive and it reinstalled the drivers on its own... got a message saying drivers installed and ready to go, but now the drive still does not show up??!! Any other ideas?
