  1. I just installed a new 3TB drive in an external case to be used for backup. It replaces a 1TB drive. I formatted it and it only shows as a 746GB drive. Why is it doing this? OS is Win 7.
  2. Thank you. With that info I was able to find what I needed in seconds and just ordered one along with some other SATA cables I need.

    3TB drive Formats As 746.39GB

    It turns out that the external case was the problem. The Vantec case I mentioned earlier arrived today and the 3TB hard drive formatted correctly. I am currently running a backup. There is supposed to be a blue light on the front of the case to indicate activity. It doesn

What I am trying to plug into a USB 3.0 port is a brand new Lexar USB 3.0 Card Reader. It will not work in any of the USB 3.0 or 2.0 ports. Plugging it into a USB 3.0 port on my other half

    USB 3.0 Ports Not Working

    The ASUS board I have now has had a lot of negative reviews since I bought it, and many with dead USB 3.0 ports, so there must be something to the bad reviews. Both my board and the Gigabyte have lots of negative reviews and some 5 egg reviews. If anyone knows of professional reviews of the Gigabyte board, I

    USB 3.0 Ports Not Working

    Since three of you recommended the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H board, I looked at it on Newegg. Very nice looking board. Might give this one a try with the next build. However, it sure has a lot of negative reviews at Newegg. Should that give me pause?

    I think the easiest thing for me to do is just buy a new board. Same board I have to reduce complications of install and getting the computer up and running again. Then RMA this board. Hang on to the new RMA board till I know for sure the one I buy is not going to give me any problems, and sell the RMA board. The board is $25 cheaper than when I bought it, so I should be able to give someone here on the forum a good deal. I
