I have a usb 3.0 2tb hard drive that works fine on a windows 7 machine. When I plug it into Windows 8, it see's it but doesn't let me access it, gives a ton of errors in the event log, and slows down the pc. I am an techy with 10+ years experience and I am at a loss as to what's wrong. I hope someone here can shed some light.

examples of event errors
