Windows 7: External seagate 1tb harddrive not working with 3.0 usb slot.

27 Apr 2013   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate Retail Box (64-bit installed) + Service Pack 1

Does anything work in that USB front slot you wanted to use?

Front ports have a cable inside the case that has to be connected directly to the motherboard.

Had to mention that, just in case, pun intended.

Legacy USB is for old fare, doubtful he needs that on, I turned mine off and all my USB fare is still working....

See here, great write up: [on BIOS settings]
