Hello there. This drive works perfectly fine on my laptop, but all **bleep** breaks loose if I try to connect it to my HTPC (AsRock Vision 3D 137B)
Windows will only find my harddrive, if I connect it while Windows is running. If I try to reboot while it’s connected, I have to reconnect both the power and the usb cable for the drive to work. Furthermore, the drive doesn’t seem to recognize when the computer is going to sleep or is shutting down, hence the harddrive will always run, and the LED is always on.
I have the exact same problem if I enter hybernation. Furthermore, the power button on the drive seems to do nothing when I press it.
The drive works perfectly fine, if I connect it while windows is running, but it’s really a pain in the **bleep**, to disconnect and reconnect both the power- and usb cables everytime I want to use it.
I’m running Windows 7 64 bit, I have the newest drivers and bios for my pc, and the newest firmware for the harddrive. I’ve tried using different USB3 ports, and USB2 ports aswell, but I have the same problem all the time. Are there any hope, or is my computer simply incompatible with MyBook Essential?
Please help me!!
