USB 3.0 ports work for mouse and keyboard, but not for anything else

Hi all,

As the thread title states, some of the USB 3.0 ports on my newly-built computer will not work with anything other than a mouse or a keyboard. Bluetooth headset, USB flash drive etc. will not show up in windows when plugged into these ports. The ports will charge and power all devices. EDIT: I should add that these ports are at the back, and are part of the motherboard; they are not front ports attached via a cable.

Solutions I've tried:
- Making sure USB 3.0 is enabled in the BIOS
- Flashing BIOS to latest version
- Installing the newest Intel USB 3.0 drivers in windows

My specs:

Processor: Intel i7-3770K
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V PRO
Memory: Patriot 8GB Viper 3 1600MHz (2x4Gb) RAM
SSD: Corsair Force Series GT 120GB SATA III
HDD: WD 1TB 7200RPM 64MB cache
Graphics: eVGA Geforce GTX660Ti+ 3GB GDDR5
PSU: Corsair TX550M Modular
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit OEM

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated! :)

    There are three drivers I need to install? I thought there was only the one driver, which I found here:

    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=21375&ProdId=3435&lang=eng

    Are there more drivers I need to install? I already tried the ones that came with my motherboard's dvd...

  4. TIL one needs to install more than one set of USB 3.0 drivers... Thanks knightdog!

    I found that my motherboard's homepage at ASUS had drivers from both Intel and Asmedia listed on the download's page. So I installed those, and everything's now working great.
