Make sure all of the USB functions are enabled in the BIOS/UEFI.


Checked that. Both usb 2.0 and 3.0 functions are set to "enable"

So my friend has a PNY 32gb 3.0 flash drive. I tried it out and the computer (after a quick automatic driver install) recognized it immediately.

Guess it was my Sandisk stick then. I just don't understand why it would work in 2.0 slots. That's why I didn't immediately think the drive was the problem. Could I have caused it to fail? Formatted it wrong or something?

So I got the replacement sandisk extreme and the same thing happened. Worked at first, then stopped being recognized in the 3.0 slot. My buddy's PNY 3.0 drive continues to work fine though in 2.0 and 3.0 slots and get 3.0 speeds.

Tried to google the issue and found these.

Not sure what to try at this point. I figured I'd have seen more about this issue in the glowing amazon reviews for the sandisk extreme if it was a bigger deal.

Seems like a weirdly specific incompatibility with this flash drive and certain chipsets/controllers but does anyone have suggestions?
