My WD 500Gb external drive (wdbacy5000abk-01) isn`t recognised connected to the USB 3.0 port on my brand new desktop PC running Windows 8.1.
It works perfect on my laptop`s USB 3.0 port running windows 7.
The drive works using the USB 2.0 ports.
I already updated the firmware of the drive.
Is this another failure of windows 8.1, **bleep** OS, where everything is gone what we already used for 20yrs or more.
Or do I need to go back to windows 7,…better workable solution.
Any suggestions to get the drive working within W8.1 on a USB3.0 port.
