    Is anyone else here having trouble with USB 3, and does anyone have any workarounds?

    I'm trying to use my WD drive with this laptop. I got it to detect it once in USB 3 mode (according to system profiler), but now it doesn't want to. I can get the system to see the drive if I push the USB cable in just enough that the USB 3 pins don't make contact but the standard pins do. But of course in that instance it runs as a USB 2 drive.

    Mines not working. I bought a Patriot USB 3 HD enclosure for my Intel X-25 SSD and it worked initially for about a day.. now it doesn't respond at all.
