MyPassport USB 3.0 Connection issues


I have a problem with my WD MyPassport 1 Tb USB 3.0:

(I’m using a Sony Vaio VPCF1)

If the Computer boots without the drive connected I can’t connect it to a USB 3.0 port afterwards. When I try to connect the drive to one of the USB 3.0 ports the drive starts, but the PC doesn’t recognize it. Only if I use the USB 2.0 port the drive is being recognized. 

If I boot the PC with the drive connected to one of the USB 3.0 ports I can plug it in and out as often as I want and it still works without any problem.

The drivers of the drive are up to date.

Is there a way to fix that? It’s kind of a first world problem, but actually it’s a pretty annoying one.

Thanks in advance,
