WD Elements 1TB not working with USB 3.0 Port but working with 2.0

#1

Hi,

I have a WD Elements 1TB USB 3.0 drive. It has a weird problem that it gets detected in USB 2.0 port but doesnt get detected in 3.0 port. When plugged into 3.0 port, the LED blinks for a while and then becomes steady, no vibration after that. The drive is not detected in device manager as well. I have tried several different computers / laptops of my friends and same problem persists in USB 3.0. I tried looking for firmware of the drive, but it seems the updater does not support this drive. It works perfectly fine in USB 2.0 ports.
Please Help.
Thanks & Regards.

last thing to try is using different USB 3.0 cable
