Hello Mate,

  • Did you already test your drive on another computer?

  • How about the USb cable?

  • Did you installs the USB 3.0 drivers?

I will test the drive on another computer tomorrow, and i just ordered 2 new USB 3.0 cables from Monoprice. As for drivers… it says the SES driver is installed on this hard drive. I have 2, 2TB element drives and tranfer rates between those 2 are at 11mb/s.
