Thanks for your help with this To confirm this is the case my friend who is visiting at the weekend is bring his drive Same type and model as mine to put on to my system.. And guess what it works!! Have tried all usb2 and usb3 ports all give the same result. Decided to test the drive further by removing it from the casing , removing the small circuit board that connects to a standard SATA and power connection on the drive WD Scorpio Blue and installed it in my system. Just completed my testing with a friends WD usb drive and it is working OK on my system. I am not techie enough to use multi-meter at the moment.

Ga-z68ap-d3 USB problem
Decided to test the drive further by removing it from the casingremoving the small circuit board that connects to a standard SATA and ga-z68ap-c3 connection on the drive WD Scorpio Blue and installed it in my system. Only cost a couple of quid! Home Help Login Register. GentsThanks for your support on this.
Dark Mantis on December 05, Hi Allanm, I find this article, Review: Just completed my testing with a friends WD usb drive and it is working OK on my system.
If not the circuit gw-z68ap-d3 we had quite a few where the cable end plug wasn’t going deep enough to make a connection.
Dark Mantis 10typesofpeopleoneswhoknow binaryandoneswhodont. December 06, December ysb, I wouldn’t be surprised at that actually Allan as when they first came on the market we had quite a few failures on the forum here and nearly all were down to failing drives.
Try gogabyte and come back here for comments. December 09, December 08, As you said though for a couple of quid it’s worth trying anyway. Might be worth checking.
Made a search of the pages. The crazy thing is that on my older systemalso a Gigabyte Mobo with Windows 7 64bit the drive works just fine! Even if it’s not your motherboard, I invite you to read this post.
And guess what it works!! Neither of the two computers on which I was testing this drive were putting out enough voltage to the USB cable. Thanks for your help with this What you say would make sense.

It’s worth a try Allanm but of course a Y splitter will only increase the current capacity not the voltage as it will just supply two lots of gigabhte same volts. I rebuilt my old system today and when I tried my USB drive on this sysem it also failed.
Is the problem that the motherboard isn’t seeing the drive on bootup or is gigabtye not finding it during a Windows session as well?
Come back here for other comments. Read the rest of the article. So problem is with my drive or so I thought!
So I got out my trusty multimeter. I can only conclude that the usbb is in the USB circuit boardbut on the up side I have an additional GB drive in my system.

Please do let us know the outcome though. I have now come to the conclusion that my USB drive is broken!
