External HDD fine with USB 2, not recognised with USB 3

  • Hello all,


    I have a problem with a Samsung D3 external HDD, which is USB 3.0


    With my Windows laptop it works fine on USB 3.


    With my OMV box (a PC case with this mobo http://www.asrock.com/mb/intel/H97%20Pro4/ ) it works fine on USB 2 but I connect it to USB 3 it is not recognised and I get the following errors in syslog:



    However, if I connect a different USB 3 drive (a slightly newer Seagate Expansion) BUT using the same PSU, USB cable and port, it works fine.


    Any thoughts welcome!

  • I didn't really get anywhere with this.


    In the end I shucked the drive (as it was out of warranty anyway) and put it in a slightly newer Inateck FE3001 enclosure.


    That worked first time at expected speeds.
