Hi, I have this usb harddrive, it used to work when i directly plugged it into my usb ports on the computer. now it'll only work if i plug it into a hub *but* the hub is plugged into the computer... so it won't work when plugged into the computer, but it will work when plugged into a hub thats plugged into the computer. i tried this with every port and it only works through the hub, but it used to work fine directly to the computer.... I tried reinstalled my usb drivers, i have a dfi lanparty ultra b rev 2 and i downloaded the nvidia drivers, they didn't do anything. also, i set my usb ports as bootable, and the same thing happens. it'll try to boot off the external hd when i plug it in to the hub. but it won't try to boot when i directly plug it in to the computer. so, i don't think reinstalling windows will do anything.... and my usb ports aren't broken because everything else i have that's usb works. and it also works off a hub that i plug into those ports..... so what gives? i'm totally stumped.
