Hello everyone!

I'm facing a strange problem..

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..

could you please help me out with this issue??

My total configuration:

intel core i5 750 processor
MSI P55A-GD65 motherboard
kingston 2 GB DDR3 RAM
Corsair 2 GB DDR3 RAM
1 TB seagate internal barracuda
1 TB seagate external HDD
500GB WD My passport usb 3
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit.
XFX Radeon 5670 1GB GDDR5 GFX

I went into the BIOS and checked...

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!!

thanks .
