On my G75Vx
I am using a WD Mypassport 2 Tb drive.
It always worked fine, until I reinstalled my Windows 8

On the left side from my laptop, it will not work
But on the right side it works just fine.

So what am I missing here?

All the drivers are installed, even downloaded drivers from the WD Website..
Is the left side of the laptop USB 3.0 and right side 2.0 ?

Thanks

Both of USB3.0 by G75VX. you uninstall win 8 and install win 7 or clean win 8?

I reinstalled the recovery USB from Windows 8. (created with the asus tool)
Noticed that I have some other items that do not work anymore on the left side, but does work on the right side..
and I know for a fact that it used to work.

Win 8 includes USB 3.0 drivers, so there is no need to install any USB 3.0 divers when you have Win 8

I only installed other drivers, since It was complaining that it could not find the drivers.
so, then why is USB 3.0 in general not working.. (as for my other items)

Uninstall Asus Charger Plus, in device manager uninstall the USB 3.0 drivers. Reboot, The MS Win 8 Native USB 3.0 Drivers should automatically install. Don't install the Charger Plus unless you use or need it!
