Updating usb 1 0 to 2 0

Rated 3.99/5 based on 586 customer reviews

The drive is not recognized when connected to any USB 3.0 port, But will work on usb 2.0 port..The light does go on when plugged in the usb 3.0 port, And it does spin and everything, But it just doesn't get detected..What I mean is that I can connect a USB 3.0 device (like my flash drive) to a 3.0 port, go to devices and printers, click on the flash drive, and it says "device can perform faster when connected to usb 3.0." The write speeds are slow as well (about 27MBs for large files).Although USB flashing may not be officially supported by Lenovo, I just did it on a Think Centre Edge 72 (Ivy) 3493.Since I had 2 USB 3.0 Ports, I plugged it in to the other one it it worked after plugging in and out several times..

The results should tell you if there is something wrong with the drive.I tried plugging the drive in both USB 3.0 ports, But the HDD light just keeps on, Where as it's supposed to be blinking..Now you might think that the problem is in the HDD, But it cant be since the HDD works fine on a usb 2.0 port.. Hi there Hashir Zahid, Sorry that you are facing some issues with your WD drive.On the usb 2.0 port, The light blinks, I think this tells that the device is readable?I dont have any other usb 3.0 HDD that I might be able to plug in to check if the port is the problem, Neither do I have any other laptop/PC that has a usb 3.0 port...
