Hello, I have Silicon Power Blaze B20 flash drive, which is not recognized by my desktop PC's both USB 3.0 ports. The flash drive's light blinks when pugged in, but no reaction from PC's side. I have tried to plug cord between flash drive and PC, but no change. It does recognize the device when plugged in any other USB 2.0 port. And the device is being recognized by other computer's both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, so I assume it is PC's fault, but I have no idea what it is. My PC's USB 3.0 ports do recognize any other USB 3.0 devices - my external HDD, other USB 3.0 devices but this drive.

Thank you!

I had a Lexar USB 3.0 thumb drive do something similar to that. It worked fine in my laptops USB 3 and USB 2 ports but wouldn't work in my desktops USB 2 ports. It didn't have any USB 3 ports. I ended up returning it.
