USB3 stopped working

I have a USB3 Western Digital passport and it was working fine until yesterday. I unplugged the USB3 cable and replugged and nothing. Then I plugged the USB3 drive into a USB2 and it worked. Next I reloaded the USB3 driver and again no cigar. I am using an USB3 extension cable because the USB3 ports are on the back of the CPU. I plugged a USB2 drive into the cable and it worked. Any ideas?

BTW it is certainly faster but not 10 times as they claim, 2-3 is what I was getting.

Hi

did you reinstall the SAME driver? try to get the latest chipset driver from your mainboard website.
i had a similar problem once.

Yes it was the same USB3 driver that I had installed originally. I did reinstall the chipset driver and that did the trick.
Thanks.
