    What I have heard is that there are a sufficient number of problems with W8's USB3. Some have been solved already, so it would be a good advice to apply the latest updates for W8 (I really saw issues vanish by it for people).

    Otherwise look here : Windows 8 USB 3 compatibility - Neowin Forums
    Not the same problem, but it looks of similar origin to me. Comes with a solution as well ...
