I'm using Windows 8.1
When I plug in my brand-new-awesome 2TB Adata HDD in a USB 3.0 port,
it isn't recognized by the OS
When I try to use a USB 2.0 port, it works well
The drivers seem to be up-to-date
How can I get it working with USB 3.0?
Try a different port, I'm sure the drive is compatible with USB 2.0. Obviously not the ideal solution but it would at least allow you test to make sure it's not the drive that is the problem.
