did either of you use ASUS liveupdate to install new USB drivers? if you havent already, uninstall that right away.
ROG Notebooks: G75VW, G74SX, & G73JH
Gaming Rig: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme | ASUS GTX 560 Ti's x2 - SLI | 16gb Corsair Vengeance 2122 ram | OC'd i7 2600K - WC'd (2x Cougar Vortex on Corsair H100) | Crucial M4 SSD's x2- Raid0 | 850W Power Supply | Repurposed Alienware ALX Case w/ top reservoir fins, mood lights still work!
No i uninstalled liveupdate as soon as i started up this computer.
So if you had another device or at least another cable you could test with, it'd help rule out the problem being with the drive and/or cable.
Lol, I tried plugging my drive under Ubuntu and no problems at all, this at least guarantees that it is not a hardware issue. I will try with windows 8 if it goes all well.
Perhaps but if other people seem to be working fine, i'd like to fix it and not lose all my data on my hdd again.. which was like 600gb of stuff.
I don't know what else to suggest; try a new 3.0 device and see if the problems exist.
