I finished my first desktop build I built myself back in April.
It has 2x USB 3.0 ports in the back and I added an Anker 2 port USB 3.0 3.5" front bay upgrade that connects to the mobo’s front panel usb3 lead.
I just got my first and only USB 3.0 flash drive last month and when connected to either front or back USB 3.0 ports, Windows 7 gives me errors when copying data to it.
The first error said the drive was dirty and asked to scan the drive for errors. I did that and it said nothing was wrong.
Afterwards, when copying data to it the error says the host drive is no longer available and the copy process terminates early.
Google wasn’t much help and the apparent fixes didn’t work for me.
On the other hand, the drive works fine on USB 2.0 ports.
This build is the only PC I have that has USB 3.0.
