Hi Guys,

I just recently built a pc.

For some reason, my external hard disk doesn't wanna work in usb 3.0 ports all the time, it will power alright, but doens't get detected in windows, not under disk management, not under device manager.

It works in one port at the back though which is the bios flash port, I assume is usb 2.0.

However, when I keep removing an replugging it into the usb 3.0 ports, once in a while it will work, doesn't seem to have a pattern.

Have tried high performance option, all mb drivers installed. change the usb settings suspend option doesn;t seem to make a difference.

Drive is a WD elements 2 tb. MSI B450 Tomohawk max is the board with recent BIOS.

Any insight is much appreciated, thanks in advance all.
