As Slarty, pointed out, you've got your USB 2.0 drivers up and working!! Try installing USB 3.0 again and let's see what happens!!!

For the moment, please just do these in this order

USB 3.0 post# 229:
Enable test mode to solve USB problems?

DevManView post# 224:
Enable test mode to solve USB problems?

You will need to re-enable some of the things that were disabled. I'd like to review the Clean Startup items and not just re-enable everything. I run my system with everything off except the touchpad. I wrote a post not long ago with what recalled needed to be 'undone'.

For now, please just do the two above

Thanks


At some point in time you should complete the Malware guide. I think this can wait a day or two, I wouldn't wait a week though

B&H Photo is a great place. I've ordered some things from them, the prices are hard to beat.

If you're going to use this mostly as backup and cold storage (as opposed to portability) I think there are some better choices. Unfortunately I can't select the options on B&H for some reason.

Here are the things I'd look for and see if any are a comparable price. See if you can click the filters on the left.

Desktop drive (if you don't plan to carry it around very often or ever)

Capacity: not larger than 2GB 2TB (too many threads with issues re: larger capacity drives - there are lots of reasons) 2GB 2TB is a lot and you can always add another drive if you need more space.

Rotational Drive
Drive Speed: 7200 RPM
Connection: USB 3.0
Buffer: 16-32 MB ( both a cost and a performance issue - more is better, but it increases the price.)
Power: AC
Average Seek time: Under 5 ms (8-11 is ok, but above that, you'll feel your system drag down
Pre-Format: Windows NTFS

See what results you get with those choices and post a link. Any member can offer their opinion.
Basically, you want a decent spin rate (I feel that 10,000 is too high for an external) and fast seek time

Have fun today everyone, and thanks for great support on a tough issue.

I think I'll go out and play in the rain - just to get off my ..... chair.

I need a portable drive to take back and forth from Michigan to Florida.
Did you really mean 2 gigabytes? I have close to 500 GB on my hard drive right now that I need to back up. I take a lot of photos and videos. I need at least a terabyte.

Trying to get the USBs to work with sp56164 didn't work. There seem to be two of them on my computer. Maybe I need to try to get rid of one of them. I'm not sure it's going to help. Maybe try an older version?

Here are some screen shots of what I saw when drivers were being installed and the current device driver view. Why did we see so many more hubs before?
