I pretty much have this drive plugged in 24/7 and took it out for a day and went to plug it back in and it just doesnt want to appear. I have tried all of the USB 3.0/3.1 ports on my case and mother board (about 6 in total), but when i plug it into my cases single USB 2.0 port it works right away.

I have most of my games loaded onto that hdd, I've never used it on a 2.0 port, do you think I would be able to use 2.0 for a while until I can back it up and get a new one, I don't mind losing what is on there, but it would be a pain to redownload everything. I think it still has a couple months of warranty
