Yesterday i bought a new WD my passport essential usb 3.0 500GB Ext HDD, but when i plugged it into my usb 3.0 port in my motherboard, the files just copied with the general usb 2.0 speed. i didn't get any speed enhancement.
i have installed the NEC electronics usb 3.0 driver provided with the motherboard, i have used the usb 3 cable that was provided..but the speed doesn't increase..
My BIOS didn't have any speed control for usb 3.0, it just had a feature allowing me to enable or disable the usb ports...
i had of course enabled the ports, but still i'm getting the low speed of usb 2.0...please help!!
