My USB 3.0 is slow

Hi,

I just bought a WD Passport external hard drive with USB 3.0, but when I tried it, I only got writing speeds of about 30-39 MB/s, which is the same speed as my USB 2.0.
I bought this USB 3.0 hard drive thinking that it would increase the writing speed greatly, but it does not seem to be working. Is there some sort of trick or activation that I need to do in order to reach these high writing speeds?

Thanks

P.S. I have SSD installed, so this should give out decent writing speeds isnt it? even with the USB 2.0 30 MB/s is pretty slow i think
